I am way too tired to write about some fancy cool cards that I picked up at a card show last weekend from the dollar bin. So, i am just going to show them to you and like fine art you can interpret them for yourselves. Remember kids, fine art. So lets get some intellectual insight to the gems below.
I like that this one is chrome and shiny. The problem with shiny cards is the fingerprints and other sticky stuff prior to sleeving and top loading them. I get these cards from a guys that’s always at the shows. He comes up from Salem and is a really nice guy, but his cards always seem a little dirty…and sticky…and sometimes…hairy….ehhhhh…
Check out that reconstructed elbow on this one. It would be interesting if any kid that pitched 3+ years of college baseball got the ol’ Tommy John surgery prior to starting their professional career. I wonder how many major league seasons could be saved if this happened? Probably a bad idea…just spitballing.
I really like this mini. Very cool card with Stras looming over Stras. I would be very happy if he did indeed become a Champion Base Ball Pitcher this year when the Nats win the World Series.
Strasburg in Red! Love the old school socks and short knickers for this GQ Mini. Both of these minis were simply dropped in the top loader. Why do people do this? If anything the minis NEED a penny sleeve to keep them from bouncing around.
