It's not the pies that makes other people hate the Yankees, but the fact that those outside of the Yankees have to glorify it.
Topps announced 12 variations in 2010 Topps Series 1 that feature Yankees getting pied after their walk-off wins. As a Yankee fans, I enjoyed every single one of them. I attended four or five of them, which was a 90 percent rate considering the amount of games I got to see at Yankee Stadium last year.
However, why does anyone is not a Yankee fan care about these variations? Furthermore, why does a set like this need to glorify it this way?
I'm not saying I wouldn't lick the pie off ARod's face - actually I am going to say that, I would - but when else has Topps or Upper Deck commemorated a team winning over so many different cards.
Every year there is card highlighting the World Series champions, which I think is a great idea. You don't know when your team is going to win again and it's a nice piece to add to your collection when it's your team.
But 12 cards featuring guys creaming each other? Perhaps this should go in another set that is not sold to children.
Here's some more information regarding these cards (link) and another mystery that has yet to be revealed (link ... look toward the bottom for the mystery) regarding 2010 Topps Series 1. Where's Stale Gum when you need him?
