Will the new Michael Morse Topps card become an instant classic?

Sure, the Skip Schumaker Rally Squirrel Topps card is getting all the publicity this week. But the Nationals’ Michael Morse also has a unique card in the new Topps set, which debuted today. Keith Olbermann passes along this screenshot of Morse’s SP (single print) card. From his blog Baseball Nerd:

Two years ago the theme of the SP’s were the Pie-In-The-Face celebrations, mostly enacted by the Yankees’ A.J. Burnett. This year the premise is celebrations and mascots, and in the case of the former, particularly the Gatorade Bath.

[The Royals' Billy Butler], caught just as the orange goop explodes but before he’s lost under it, is a classic card. But, to my mind, the SP version of Mike Morse’s card 165 and its suspension-of-the-wave is an instant classic.

    Michael Morse is on this card, not Michael Moore.

      Too bad it’s not Michael Moore and that’s not horse piss. Then again, maybe Keith Olbermann could fill in for him. That’s a name we haven’t heard lately, thank goodness.
