Branded

Recently, Fuji showed off his favorite relic card. Fuj, I'm going to steal your image:

I really like when Upper Deck used to brand a bat relic piece with a team logo. It added a nice looking element to an otherwise pretty boring piece of wood.
Recently, I picked up this Dave Winfield bat relic. I was emptying my COMC account of credits, and had around $2 left, and search for a "Yankee memorabilia card" to spend the remaining funds on. This one was probably the best of the bunch with was left, so I figured a card like this of a HOFer was worth it.

It may not be a press conference-used table cloth, but still a pretty cool card for a small price, and I do appreciate the extra step to make the relic look a little less bland.

  1. Lol. I just read Mario's post on the Machado press conference-used table cloth card. Gotta love our hobby. Congratulations on picking up that Winfield. That Legends of NY set produced a lot of cool cards. I'll be sharing one in my post later in the day.

  3. The table cloth thing is not necessarily surprising but it is so freakin lame. That's a nice Winfield card.
