Jose Altwove. Get It? Al-2-ve? Altuve? Bah....
Collecting a player like Jose Altuve has gotten quite challenging. Now that he's one of the bigger stars in the game, he shows up in all kinds of insert sets and all of Topps' online nonsense. So of course he's in the Topps Now World Series Champions set! Here he is on his own card. I do like that there is a little bit on the back about how he did in the series, but they could have tossed on a game-by-game statistics chart. It's not that hard - cut and paste, Topps. Cut and paste.
And Jose has shown up on so many multi-player cards now that I can't keep track of them. But going back to my pun in the title, why doesn't Altuve wear the number 2 jersey?
