Michael Bourn--2012 Topps Team USA Cards

I really like the design for the upcoming 2012 Topps USA Baseball cards, which Beckett previewed today. I liked it so much, in fact, that I used its design for this Michael Bourn card. It will be interesting to see what kind of production Atlanta will get from the Bourn Identity in 2012 as it will be his free-agent year.


  1. I really hope Frank Wren and the Braves decide to keep Bourne after 2012. It's nice to see a legitimate threat on the bases again. I liked McLouth, but I'd rather see Bourne patrolling center field for years to come.

  2. I too would like to see them sign him to a long-term deal, but I really don't know if that will happen given him being a client of Boras. I was glad to hear that they moved Matt Lipka from SS to Center for next year; hopefully the kid can turn it around. He had a tough year in '11-still young, though. I really had hoped that Jordan Schafer would be "the guy", but he's got more to worry about right now.
