2014 Spirit Base Series 1: 41-50
#41 Matt Dominguez
I definitely knew Dominguez's photo was going to be a batting shot. Fielding was not an option.
#42 Lorenzo Cain
Cain had a lot more acrobatic catches but I went with one that actually shows his face.
#43 Hank Conger
#44 Yasiel Puig
Even as a Giants' fan, I can't help but be fascinated by Puig. I decided to go with a shot that's more 'vivacious' than 'hotdoggy,' though there were plenty of examples of the latter.
#45 Steve Cishek
I really hope the Marlins wear their orange jerseys more often in 2014. Having so much uniform black really clashes with the bright team colors on the card design.
#46 Kyle Lohse
#47 Ryan Doumit
Of all the red and blue teams in the MLB, I think I dig the Twins' hues the most.
#48 Zack Wheeler
I appreciate Wheeler's facial hair matching the team colors.
#49 Derek Jeter
Hey, look, his card number matches his age! (kidding, kidding)
#50 Sonny Gray
This card has necessitated the most Photoshop work for me thus far. Oakland's green is really far more dull than the green here but I can't help but tweak it. The green and gold combo is hard to beat.
