Heyward Collection: 2012 Topps (and SP Variation)

J-Hey had what was by all accounts a disappointing second season. His offensive numbers were way down from his rookie year (where he was robbed of the Rookie of the Year award by voters who don't understand baseball). Still, in a crushingly disappointing season for the future superstar, he put up a 2.2 WAR. Let's see if hobby golden boy Bryce Harper can match that down the stretch this year.

The card up top is Heyward's regular card from 2012 Topps and the card above these words is his SP variation. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this would have been taken during the weekend of the Civil Rights Game. Loot at that smile folks. How can you not love this kid?
