2013 Phungo Cards Matt Wieters

The other team I get to see frequently is the Baltimore Orioles.  For our 2nd Phungo Card of the year we would like to feature one of the O's

2013 Phungo #32 Matt Wieters

This is a photo taken at the Orioles Opener back in April of last year.  We had perfect weather and the O's beat the Twins 4-2. It was a great start to a fun season. Wieters was 0-3 that day but did collect an RBI on a fielders choice ground out. Matt made his first all-star team in 2012 and has had respectable numbers in four big league seasons.

The Phungo card features a decent pix from the left field stands - you can only get usable photos from that distance if your at a day game. It's not perfect but it is better then a lot of early 80s Fleer. The Card number is 32 which also happens to be Wieters uni number.  In the bottom right you can see the team and position listed.

You may notice that the photo extends below the player name. This gives me some options with different photo sizes.  A lot of batting stance Photos I place the feet below the nameplate, while with catchers squatting I basically just use the upper square.
