Is it just me or does this look more like a drawing than a actual photo

And that MVP stamp is strange also, not sure what this is
"The set opens up with a 5-card subset tribute to Rod Carew in light of his 3000 career hits. The set features two other subsets of note. One is the Silver Slugger Award Winners. This is the first time that a card company devoted cards to recognizing this award that had be handed out since 1980. The other recognizes minor league MVPs. Each subset features a gold emblem in the front left corner. This is one of the earliest major issue sets to feature gold. "

my guess is that since it is a minor league MVP they didn't yet have offerman in an LA uniform so they did the artwork to show him in such. (without actually going as far to check to make sure that sounds right fits his playing years haha) thats my guess!
