2006 Topps Opening Day - Kevin Millwood

Well, Opening Day has come and gone and the Rangers blew a solid outing by Kevin Millwood to lose the game. Throwing six innings and giving up no earned runs weren't enough and Kevin got tagged with the loss. This was his third straight Opening Day loss for Texas. The bright side was the solid pitching performance. The Rangers need good starters.

Here Millwood appears on card number 126 of the 2006 Topps Opening Day set as he appears in his first Opening Day start for the Rangers.

Overall I must say that I am unimpressed with this set. I think I miss the point of the Opening Day sets from Topps. The design is the same and the photos are even mostly the same. A few players get different shots in the regular set but most of them are the same. On top of that the blue foil makes the Team, player, and position hard to read. It is only slightly harder to make out in this scan than in person.
