2007 Bowman Heritage

I have recently fallen in love with 2007 Bowman Heritage and am hoping that other folks out there with extras can help me along in completing my set. Go here for my want list. I only need a handful of cards for my base set and am slowly trudging along in trying to complete a rainbow parallel set. In the meantime, check out some of the cards that had me enamored.

Below is the Jeff Kent card from the set and it is easily my favorite. I love how he seems to jump out in the picture and the blurry background perfectly frames his swing.
Here are the rookie cards of often injured Tony Abreau and thriving Pirate Andy LaRoche.
Juan Pierre, Jason Schmidt and Rafael Furcal are featured below.

The 2007 Bowman Heritage set borrows its design from the vintage 1952 Bowman set. A great feature of the set is how they decided to put some interesting backgrounds in a handful of the cards. Below, Joe Smith of the Mets stands in front of the Coney Island Ferris Wheel.
Big slugger and strike out machine Adam Dunn practices his swing in front of a corn field. I'm not sure about the relationship between Dunn and corn since he is from Texas and I don't think that corn is a major cash crop there. Is Cincinnati considered a part of the "corn belt?"
Jimmy Rollins, with bat in hand, stands in front of one of our country's greatest symbols- the Liberty Bell.
