The perfect card photo

I love everything about this card picture. First and foremost, the picture is of a Met, which always makes me want to pull a card out of whatever bin or binder I find it in. Secondly, you can't help but be drawn to the incredible joy on Justin Turner's face as he is celebrating a walk-off win with Angel Pagan. Thirdly, the celebration is framed perfectly. In between the elated players, there's a member of the Chicago Cubs walking off the field dejectedly. It couldn't have been set up any better if it was a posed shot. Fourthly, the featured celebrator is a journeyman type player. It is great to see a likely highlight of the man's career preserved forever on cardboard.
