|2019 Stadium Club #63 Dustin Pedroia|
I love this card, but it makes me sad. You can't help but see his leg propped up and be reminded of the damage his knees have gone through. His career is likely over, and this card cruelly sums up his last few years in uniform.

As much as Topps likes to rehash the same photographs over and over again, Stadium Club more than makes up for it. Before I saw this card, I never knew how much I wanted to see a vintage photograph of a Hall Of Famer squatting back-to-back with a teammate in some sort of icebreaker/exercise. Amazing only begins to describe this card.
