And the card is very real time given that this was from this year's AS game. Adding to that is the grounds crew in the background, and when was the last time the grounds crew made it into a card? You wonder if those guys have stacks of these cards somewhere and will break them out at this year's Christmas parties. Gives the card a very informal , spur-of-the-moment feel. And have you ever seen a guy smile like that? CC is STOKED, and it shows. Great photo, great card, great moment.
We also get the full story on the back, which is another great touch:Play at the Plate to thank. Also included were another CC for the collection, as well as a number of UD documentary cards. Very, very cool, and much appreciated. A package is in the offing in exchange.
