CC: Man, That's a Lot of Magenta

2009 Topps Magenta Printing Plate #170 (1/1)

I have recently acquired another printing plate depicting CC Sabathia as a Brewer, and yet again, it's the magenta one. Not that I'm complaining, but I'd like one of the other three colors for one of these plates. As for CC, word on the street has it that the printing plate is only his eleventh favorite of all plates. Here are his top ten plates.

10. Plate tectonics. The big fella's a geology junkie. Can go on about feldspar and schist ad nauseam.
9. Plate spinning. Wanted to join Ringling Brothers Circus as a child.
8. River Plate. Closet Argentine soccer nut.
7. License plates. Still trying to track down an elusive low-numbered Northwest Territories bear-shaped plate.
6. Dental plate. Surprisingly, all teeth fake except upper incisors.
5. Gold-plated stereo cable connections. Audiophile.
4. Dinosaur plates. Mitch Stetter once sat upon an Ankylosaurus model CC had left lying around the clubhouse.
3. Lithographic plates. Enjoys leather-bound volumes containing Birds of North America lithographs.
2. Plate armor. Renaissance Faire enthusiast.
1. The dinner plate. Was there ever any doubt?
