Outside the Boxes: Worst Buyback Ever...

...found this in a box of 06 upper deck, if I remember correctly, some years ago. It is one of two buybacks I have gotten unexpectedly(err) out of hobby packs. The other one was also from the Upper Deck company but was actually manufactured by them (which is more than I can say about this little beauty).
It's hard to tell how off-center this card is, and I didn't want to make it all worse by ing Walt's mediocre stats. Mostly I feel sorry for the person (ahem, machine) who had to take the time to pair this card with a card that even has the balls to mention "pleasure" and seal it in cellophane.
Oh, and why OPC? why 88OPC? I mean this card was the opposite of fun to pull.
some trades should be arriving before too long, and I can't wait to write a trade posts. God knows I've read enough. (Beardy I'm lookin at you, keep up the good work)

  1. The "opposite of fun to pull" is a brilliant way to categorize too much of what happens when buying baseball cards these days. Still, and nevertheless, we keep wading in.
