Card Cameos: 2000 Topps Chrome Roberto Alomar featuring Cat

Cat?  You mean Big Cat?




Oh, you mean Little Cat then?
2009 Topps #CBA-AG Armando Galarraga

Nope. Just Cat. This Card Cameo was recently posted by Baseball Dad, as one of many Tribe Cards he showed off in a painfully Ohio State-centric post. Take a look:
2000 Topps Chrome #140 Roberto Alomar featuring Frank Catalanotto

This is another one of the fine action shots that Cameo Cards are made for--and another "safe or out" mystery like we saw in the Cameo Card to end all Cameo Cards. So what do you think, is this Cat--former Tiger Frank Catalanotto--late in applying the tag on Alomar or is he raising his glove up after cutting him down?

Either way, a nice crisp cameo shot from the very nice set that is 2000 Topps Chrome. As I've said before, being a Tigers collector, it is not often that I find Cameos of Tigers on other teams' cards, so I want to thank Baseball Dad from showing this one off to the world and bringing it to my attention.
