Set Collection: 2011 Topps Heritage (Braves Part 2)

I'm continuing a (very) short look at all of the Atlanta Braves cards in the 2011 Heirtage set. In case you missed it, all I need at this point are five of the Jackie Robinson Special subset variations. Otherwise, my set is complete!
Thanks to the hatless picks, we can see that Huddy needs a shave up top. Martin Prado should have been voted to start the All-Star game. The fact that Brian McCann, the best offensive catcher in the NL, arguably in baseball, hasn't started yet is ridiculous. He was, of course, the hero of the NL squad.
First you see their All Star cards, now you see their base SP cards. McCann claims that Prado has been the best player on every team they've played together. I don't doubt it. As for Mike Minor, he continues to tear up AAA. It won't be long before he's in Atlanta. 
Everyday Jonny gets put on a Rookie Parade card after his phenomenal season and Brandon Beachy gets a base card? OK Topps. Whatever. Brandon Hicks just recorded his first major league hit and his first major league RBI. Spahn is always a welcome addition.
