TBT - Arizona Diamondback Edition

Throwback Thursday

Ok this will be a quick and dirty post I will try to actually publish every Thursday. I will make a retro card of a current player from the era of the throwback uni he is wearing. I will also post an actual card from that era as a comparison point.

This one is a slightly shorter throw than usual but a throwback none the less.  This season the Diamondbacks are wearing throwback uniforms the team wore from 1998-2006 on select Thursday home games. 
Here is a shot of Arizona's current first baseman, Paul Goldschmidt and the 2002 Topps card of Jay Bell. Bell played second base for the 2001 World Series Champs. The uniforms look pretty accurate but that  sleeve patch looks a little smaller on the 2016 version.
