We’ll start off with a pair of base cards. Among the many non-ballplayers in the set, I’d been hoping to land the Chuck Klosterman card in particular. That Raines is a fantastic card, too. Chuck’s disappointed that Rock didn’t get elected into the hall this year.
There were plenty of chalkboard cards in the blaster as well. Unfortunately the four that I didn’t have already are all New Yorkers. Blech. No offense to the Mets players, I actually think these three are fun to watch, but that’s some serious East Coast Bias. That’s four closer to the set at least.
But there was one more card tucked into the blaster that I need to show you. One that made it all worth it.
Wait for it…
A little longer…
Kaboom! One swatch of what is most likely a plain white t-shirt possibly worn by Anthony Bourdain whilst he was drinking and eating somewhere with a camera. I have an unashamed love for this man and his various shows, so I could care less whether he ever actually wore this – it’s just a nice piece to own.
Now I just need that Judah Friedlander relic.
Until next time,
