Good morning all... here with another card to show off...
Wow, so I pulled this card myself from one of the several boxes of 2010 Allen and Ginter that I busted. I was WAY excited when I saw it was a plate. Even more so when I saw it was of Lance Berkman. And even more excited when I realized it was the plate for the SP EXT mini from the Rip Cards! I don't think there's any way this will ever leave my collection. Ok, maybe someone makes me a Godfather offer, but seriously, it'd have to be an over the top crazy offer that I just couldn't refuse. But back to the card, it's great. The framed border is awesome and luckily with the black plate Berkman is kind of a ghost shadow on the card, it still is a freakin' sweet plate. I know there is a lot of debate on the merits of printing plates, but when it comes to a player collection, they are awesome to have and even more so when you're able to pull them yourself from a pack.
Now, all I need to do is track down a copy of that #363 SP Ext Mini to put in the binder next to the plate. I try to do that with whatever plates I have so that I can see the finished product.
Have a great day everyone!
