Jimmy Rollins (IV???)

Sometimes I wonder if the people who make these decisions even know about baseball. How is this card listed as an Impact Veteran? It is a 2007 J-Roll. The year he won MVP and in the prime of his career. Should be an Award card.

I am not overly concerned, just an observation as a Phillies fan that bothers me. I am sure there are other examples but this one really stuck out.

Leaves room to make him an Adam Jones style Signature card later on.

Another example is Barry Larkin’s silver slugger card. He won the MVP that year, which you would think would be the more important award of the two, but the card says silver slugger instead. Also, if they wanted to give Larkin a silver slugger card, it could have been for the year after. 1996 was a much better offensive year for Larkin than 95.

Sounds to me like he was a veteran that provided an impact.
