Commenting on cards from The Dutch Card Guy (Part #3)

The Dutch Card Guy sent me a package recently. He included a few Randy Johnson cards including this Awaiting the Call insert from Pinnacle. 

Here is the back. Johnson will be eligible for the Hall of Fame next year. 

Johnson was a 10 time All-Star, 5 time Cy Young winner, 300 game winner, is second all-time in strikeouts, was a World Series MVP, and pitched a no-hitter as well as a perfect game. 

Johnson was the most dominant pitcher I have ever seen. He is a 1st ballot Hall of Famer. I only have two questions. What percentage of the vote will he get? What team will be on his cap or will he go without a cap like Greg Maddux? I really hope he goes with the D-Backs.

Jeroen also sent me the Artist Proof version of the card. 

What team do you think should be on Johnson's cap in the Hall of Fame? Expos, Mariners, Astros, Diamondbacks, Yankees, or Giants. Alright, so there are only two real choices, but what team should it be and what team do you think it will be?
