Seeking Cardboard Perfection: Grade this card
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor | Commentary
There are many cards from the past and present but there’s only a small number of those that I’d deem to be cardboard perfection.
I’m not talking about centering, fuzzy corners or surface flaws — I’m talking about design, photography, composition, color. You know, the perfect blend of components then enhanced by an outrageous game-used swatch and a cleanly placed legible autograph.
Is this 2014 Panini National Treasures Jose Abreu patch auto perfect? I’m actually not sure in this case — but I think it’s close. I’m curious about your thoughts below — both with our poll and in the comments.
