Today kicks off my month long event of pink cards. For those that have forgotten, I am donating money to charity based on the number of comments left on my blog. For a complete listing of how the event will take place please click on my Pete Rose autographed/inscribed Save Second Base post from last week. I will be raffling off some cards as well throughout the month.
Because it's a big game for the Pirates today, if you leave a comment below and also say "Let's Go Bucs" I will put your name in the contest for the card I'm showing off tomorrow. If the Pirates win today, one lucky person will win tomorrow's card.
Here's a card that I've had in my collection for almost a year, but never got around to posting because I have been planning out this month long Breast Cancer Awareness event.
As you may recall, I was at this game and more importantly am on this card. It became a goal of mine to try to complete the rainbow.
The above pink refractor from 2013 Topps was had for around $20 shipped when the product hit shelves. Numbered to only 5 copies, I couldn't pass it up. I don't know why my scanner is suddenly miscropping everything, but I am sorry. The card is actually perfectly centered unlike the scan above.
Last year, Russ had a huge game for the 1 game Black Out Wild Card game when he launched 2 homeruns in the Pirates 6-2 defeat of the Reds. Let's hope he can do the same this year too.
