1987 Topps – Shin Soo Choo
As a fan of the opposing team in Cleveland one thing that annoyed me while at the game was the way the fans kept saying Chooo (as in Boooo) every time he touched the ball. Even if he made a routine catch they chanted his name. That being said he is a dynamic player that the fans can get excited about. I am sure that opposing fans thought the same thing of the Jose Jose Jose chants or the Magglio one they used to do on the South Side.
I took this picture on Opening Day as Choo was waiting for the pitch in right field. I thought it was a great chance to get a close up of the right fielder, and the new home uniforms the team was displaying that day. This looked more like a picture you would have seen on a ’87 Topps card than anything with action in it that I could have made for him.
