Pair of 2014 Topps Chrome defensive base cards

Today and yesterday's cards might be somewhat blase to the high end collector but they are my 12th and 13th base cards to the 2014 Topps Chrome set. One problem I'm noticing on this set is that the player really doesn't jump off the photograph for some reason here. Perhaps the contrast is not set high enough. The design team may have done this on purpose because the rookie cards are immediately apparent, not just from the small RC logo on the card but because each rookie is shown on a green background (presumably the field at the RC premier or training camp) whereas the vets are shown on really dark backgrounds. Generally I like the idea of making the rookie cards immediately noticeable but the vet cards should look cool too and they don't.
