1995 Leaf, James Mouton

#101 James Mouton

This is the third and final James Mouton card that I got signed at Astros Fanfest last spring. You can see the first one here and the second one here.

I really like this Leaf set. It's from 1995, so of course it has some foiling. But, it is pretty minimal. I like how the team name and inset picture have a foil-like look to them without using the typical foil process. I don't know what this is called, but it looks good. You can still see James' foot underneath the "A". Plus, when the light hits these cards right, the silver has a prism effect, almost like a refractor.

Click on the card and check out James' right forearm. Does that look freaky or is it just me?

Nice card...and his arm does look somewhat freakish. What's up with that?
