Fun Cards: 2012 Topps Mr. Red

Returning to the family of mascots this year is an updated Mr. Red! Mr. Red was retired in 2007, but has been redesigned and will come out of retirement in 2012, and he looks so much better than he did 5 years ago. He joins Gapper, Mr. Redlegs, and Rosie Red as official team mascots.

I’ve said this a million times…if they don’t do a live, on-the-field race (like the Nationals’ mascots), then I will be extremely disappointed. The scoreboard race just isn’t that entertaining.

  1. Wait — they have a Mr Redlegs and a Mr Red?

    • Yes, beginning this year. Mr. Red was retired a few years ago, and Mr. Redlegs (vintage looking guy with a ‘stache) was brought out. This year, a much-improved Mr. Red will be joining Mr. Redlegs and Rosie and Gapper.
