2013 Topps Baseball Release Countdown #5
1952 Topps #5 Larry Jansen
It has been speculated that Jansen is holding up the seven fingers to represent each of his seven children, but I haven't seen that where that has ever been confirmed. Whatever the case, I'm thinking that Topps should have assigned card no.7 to the Giants pitcher.
In a perfect world, the release date for 2013 Topps I Baseball would get pushed back two days and this could be viewed as some sort of prophetic vision of Jansen, reminding us (hypothetically) that Topps 2013 is now seven days away.
