2001 Topps Fusion, Talmadge Nunnari
#234 Talmadge Nunnari
Here is the second and final Talmadge Nunnari card that I got signed at the American Association All Star Game.
This is the second off-beat 2001 Topps card that I got signed at an American Association game this year. The other one was a Topps Stars card of Reggie Abercrombie and I must say that the Topps Fusion is a much better looking set. It doesn't look as good in the scan as it does in person, but it is still a good looking set (based solely off of this card). The entire background above the red stripe has a shiny prism effect when rotated in the light. Plus, I like the two photos that overlap and the giant fading Expos logo. Throw in the red Expos hat and you have got yourself one good looking card. Now, if we could only do something about Talmadge's signature.
Talmadge is the manager of the Pensacola Pelicans and, like Butch Henry with the El Paso Diablos, he was born in Pensacola.
