I have decided to start a series of posts featuring some of the cards that hold a special place in my collection despite not fitting into a specific collecting category and I call them cards I have Just For The "F" Of It (as in fun).
I've seen this card posted on a couple blogs over the years and was always a fan. I thought it would be a good addition to my collection but never went as far as seeking out a copy to purchase. A few weeks back I walked into one of my LCSs and saw it on the bid board and got really excited.
You just have to love a card that combines super heroes with baseball. This card isn't in perfect condition but the price was right bringing it home for a buck or two.
I have considered collecting some older super heroes sets over the year but never taken the plunge. In reality, my sports card collection is diverse enough to suck up my time and budget so it is probably a good idea I haven't. If I happen to see a cheap wax box I would probably pick it up but for now this awesome card will have to suffice.
