Posting a Nationals card for the 4th of July.
An error on the card is they got the stinkin date wrong. The game as can be seen on the Phungo banner was April 4 2005. Not sure where Topps got the 4/2 date from. According to Baseball-Reference.com There weren't any MLB games at all that day.
And of course for the inaugural season @ the Nationals new ballpark in DC, nobody associated with MLB had the good sense to schedule a home game for the Nats. Instead the Nats are visiting the Reds. I am guessing this is because the traditional home opener has been stolen from Cincinnati and this year took place in Washington.
and of course I leave you with
