It's not quite Straw, but it's still pretty damn good. The "Braves" ribbon really pops on this card.
Another '80 design Archives (up to 23/50 now). There's something a little weird about this card (beyond the fact that Posey, like J-Hey, wasn't born yet in '80) and I can't put my finger on it. Anyone?
Ichiro looks like he's thinking "Bond...James Bond" in the inset photo, and given his sense of humor, he very well may be. Not having a very good season, but I'm still damn glad I got to see him play last month.
I've had very little love for the '54 design Archives. Lots about the layout, fonts, etc. is just wrong. However, when you're dealing with a pic of Wade Boggs that looks like he's annoyed at the little tiny man Wade Boggs in front of his bat, you can't go wrong.
And finally, a Pro Debut card! it's Anthony Oh Crap I Can't Read His Name Because Of The Damn Foil, er, Anthony Gose! Saw this kid a bunch in Lakewood in '09, loved him. Crazy fast. Hear he's running into some trouble hitting at the higher levels, hope he shakes it.
