2019 Topps Kershaw could be a problem based on mock up

Yesterday I wrote about how I’m going to be put to the test this week with the release of 2019 Topps and how it’ll likely break my month-long streak of not buying/opening packs.

That of course led me to look really for the first time at some of the mockups that were released of certain players – I had resisted for the most part as I did not want to trigger my desires for new cards.

Given that Clayton Kershaw is really the only active player I truly collect, I went and looked at the early released version of his card. And something immediately struck me: Is Kershaw’s zipper down in this image?

I hope that Topps picked up on this and figured out a way to either fix it in Photoshop or choose another image.

I was discussing this with a friend yesterday and it was determined that the image used in the mock up comes from his Opening Day 2018 start against the San Francisco Giants.

I like Kershaw, but I really don’t want to be distracted with his first 2019 card featuring him with a wardrobe malfunction.
