I have a decent collection of Game-Used and Autograph cards from the Expos and Nationals, so I figured I’d dedicate a regular feature to them. First up is Michael Barrett from 2002 Leaf Certified Materials.
I’m definitely not a Michael Barrett fan, but I love this card. First of all, I’ve already said I’m a sucker for the whole Leaf Certified Mirror Blue/Red/White gimmick, for some reason (okay I know the reason – ooooh shiny!), and when you throw in a cool little jersey piece with the stitches showing? Yeah, I’m there. The only thing that annoys me is the logo – who the hell is supposed to be able to read that? I sure can’t.
