Cardboard Crosby: Upper Deck 2006

This card has an unusual photo for a baseball card. It's neither a portrait shot nor an action shot; Bubba isn't even in (full) uniform. I assume it was taken during batting practice or something.

Quite the farmer's tan he's got there. I guess he doesn't use in sunscreen. (Though he should, fair as he is.)

Here's the back of the card:

Not sure what he's got in his cheek in that photo. Bubble gum? Sunflower seeds? Hopefully not tobacco.

It says:

Acquired by the Yankees at the start of the 2004 season, Crosby became a popular performer among the New York faithful because of his upbeat attitude on the field and tremendous hustle in all phases of the game. In only his second series with the club in April of '04, he launched two homers in a four-game set against the White Sox, including a key three-run shot in the finale on 4/11 that propelled the Yankees to a 5-4 victory.
