Sunday feature SIL: So long Mr Spaulding

Weekly feature time. Delving back into my cards (or shall we use the term "personal collection"), we come to a card that I found pretty unique when I pulled it. I wished the subject matter of this card was different, but begger's can't be choosers. Still...wish the subject was different. While this card is stamped 2005 all over it, I am positive I pulled it in 2006, mainly because I don't remember buying a single pack of 2005 Topps Updates & Highlights, not to mention a few dozen, which I would have done considering the amount of relic cards I have with All Star materials on them.

A Cubs card in my PC - it's one of the signs of the Apocalypse.

That's a piece of one of the bases used during the 2005 All Star game. Numbered 856/1000 (I wonder if that is per base or the total base cards), I find it one of the more unique relics pieces I own. Instead of a piece of uni from a single player, I have a piece of history that was touched by many players. A look at the rosters from the 2005 mid summer classic is a listing of a good dozen future HOF members.

So yeah - I have a Cubs card I like. But it's really not a Cubs card.

Goats - bigger dicks than swans.
