In the 2013 offering, I like the base cards a lot better.
The wood grain looks pretty good on this type of card. I will say the three cards on the right-left diagonal (Rizzo, Profar, Cain) are pretty goofy looking. The other six are excellent.
The horizontals are nice, too. I think it actually works well with the name up the side. I'm just glad they rotated the pennant and TP logo. It sorta looks like Josh Johnson is a fan of Jimmy Johns.
