Here is the second set that I mentioned in my previous post. I am embarrassed that I missed this insert when it came out. However, now that I have come to my senses, I will actively search for these cards. And why not? They focus on a part of the game that has been eliminated, homeplate collisions. Here is the first card that I have obtained for this great set:
#CP-CF, Carlton Fisk
This is a fantastic card. Fisk is shown in his Red Sox gear, blocking homeplate as a Yankee slides in. What more could you ask for?
I miss this aspect of the game. I don’t want to see catchers end their careers, like Ray Fosse, but by eliminating this part if the game, MLB has taken a lot of excitement out of the game.
