I love getting boxes of cards in the mail. No, not boxes of unopened packs, but a nice 200 count box of singles from various sets. Sometimes, the possibilities can go on for days at a time.
I received one such box today from reader Greg A., who sent me a load of cards from a couple of sets I'm working on, along with a bunch of Blue Jays (of course!!).
But leafing through the cards for a 2nd time, this particular card of Pat Borders caught my eye, because there is a lot of something that you don't usually see on a baseball card.
I've always liked the 90's SP sets from Upper Deck, even though I own very little of them, and this card just gives me another reason to do so. Love the expression of pain on Borders' face; he was a tough son of a gun during his playing days.
I've seen hockey cards and football cards with blood on them, but baseball cards? Anyone out there have a baseball card with blood on it? Would love to see them in posts out there in the blogosphere...
Thanks for reading, Robert
