My Picks # 51: Scott Gomez

Sometimes I choose cards for this series because of an excellent design and sometimes I choose them just for the photography. This card would be the latter. It's a Scott Gomez from 2001-02 Topps Stadium Club featuring an awesome action shot. 

There's a few things going on here. First, you've got Tomas Vokoun attempting to make a diving save on Gomez. Second, and probably most noticeable, you've got Scott Gomez completely airborne. Third, you've got the puck in mid-air headed for the back of the net. 

As far as the design, I like the simplicity. There's a textured silver bar across the top featuring the Stadium Club text and the player name. Then there's the silver foil team logo right beneath the text. 

There is plenty of room left for the picture and the best part, at least on this card, is the fact that none of the design elements cover any significant portions of the picture. 

There is plenty of excellent photography in this set and I plan on showcasing some more of it with future picks in this series.
