Sick, sick pull!!!!

Note: If you haven’t already read the Heroes box break post (the previous post), read that first!

Now that you all have heard about the rest of our Heroes box break, it is time to unveil one of my most exciting pulls ever from a pack or box. Drumroll please…

Okay, are you ready? Cause here it is:

That, my friends, is one healthy patch! We were trying to figure it out, but does anybody know where that might have come from on his jersey? I don’t know the Cubs uniforms very well, but I was hoping that somebody out in the ‘sphere might. It’s too bad that it’s of Aramis Ramirez and not somebody like Ken Griffey Jr., for example, but the filthiness if this patch makes up for it. Needless to say, when we opened up the fateful pack and noticed a very thick card inside, we knew we were still owed a game used card, and we were very psyched to see the telltale sign of a patch. “It’s a patch,” I screamed, and Angelsfan nodded. I love this card, with the navy blue relic and light blue background.

Let us know what you think and if you know where on the jersey that patch might have come from!


EDIT: Our guess, thanks to one of the comments left here, is that this is a piece of bottom of the National League patch on Aramis’ sleeve, as you can see the home plate from the bottom of the National League logo on the right corner of the patch.


New Gem in my Collection

Angelsfan and I like to trade whenever we get stuff that the other one might like. I have been trading for Giants and Angels for quite some time, and had myself about a 4 inch tall stack of cards to hand off to Angelsfan including a jersey-auto of Howie Kendrick, a K-Rod jersey card, a Vladdie bat card, and several numbered, vintage, and base cards as well. In return, he gave me this:

WOW!! I’ve had it for about a week now, and still can’t get over how awesome it is. This is up there with the Tony Gwynn quadruple patch from Wicked Ortega as one of my nicest and favorite cards. Don’t worry about those scuffs, they’re all from either the magnetic holder or my scanner bed. I even think that the shiny, obnoxious Topps sticker works well with the Bowman Sterling design and overall shininess of the card. Oh, by the way, it’s even shinier in person! Way shinier! Thanks so much Angelsfan. you da man!!!
