Saturday brought not only their on-the-field meeting, but a cardboard reunion, as well. Three packages arrived in the mail that day, two of which contained a card of the players.
I'm trying to abstain from purchasing relic cards, but Jason's regular base card pictures him in a Cardinal hat and I wanted to has one last Heritage card, for old times' sake.
This year's Diamond Kings will probably be panned- but just as last year, I really like them. No, it's not a Dick Perez painting, but think they're well done. Beats the hell out of a lot of the 'art' in the Topps National Chicle set a few years back.
This final Heyward card arrived earlier last week, but I had not featured it on the blog yet. I do like the design and think the red, white and blue stripes on the bottom resemble the colors found on the '84 Diamond Kings, I think it is?
