This is the only in-game action card in the entire pack...and he's standing. It's a small sample size, but if the majority of this set lacks action, that's a bit of a disappointment. I could see the posed shots for the older sets where it was common, but the 1981 set had enough action photos to the point where Archives could have included more.

Always good to get a Red Sox card in the pack, and young up-and-comer Benintendi is a good one to get. Those background hedges are becoming almost as commonplace as the Green Monster...

I'm glad they decided to show off the vintage Padres uniform as opposed to another card of him as a Yankee. Strangely, I kind of think the green border compliments the ugly color scheme of the uniform. I don't know why, but it works.
