For some reason this card really stood out to me, I think there are several reasons:
- Even though it is a sticker auto, Reggie signed a nice clear legible auto with his #44 in the "J" that fits well on the sticker
- I am not a Yankees fan but the color scheme by Donruss on this card with the Yankee logo just seems to work
- The cards is pretty limited, it is serial numbered 04/20
- I have a semi collection of Reggie (I was much more active in collecting his a few years back, now I just pick up random cheap things here and there or set aside his cards that I pull) but never was able to get an Auto
I was in my car and decided to open the packs before entering my next stop. The Heritage packs resulted in nothing of note, I was hoping to get an SP or two and ended up with a Robinson Cano sticker, a Victor Martinez insert and a dreaded pack with no SP or insert. My first pack of Gypsy Queen netted me this nice on card auto.
I was pretty happy, I figured I got one of two autos in my two packs, pretty good success rate. I have a couple other Lind autos and they don't seem to be highly desirable but, hey at least it is an auto. I opened the second pack and noticed a similarly different colored card late in the pack, colored just like the Lind. I quickly jumped ahead (I have no patience) and saw this beauty:
I couldn't believe it, less than half an hour after declaring Ryno as my next target, I had one of his autos in my possession. What a great day at the LCS!
