As one of my goals for this year is spend more time focusing on Carlton Fisk and his cards, I have decided to make Friday the day wherein I will focus on Fisk. Today is a simple post, one in which I want to show a new addition to my Fisk collection, one which I hope will be appreciated, even without logos.
2015 Panini Cooperstown Hall of Fame Crown Royale Die Cut #19
This is the purple parallel numbered 12/50 and it is beautiful. Once again, Panini has demonstrated how apt they are at dealing with lack of logos, especially with catchers.
To pontificate for just a moment, the framing used for this card and photo are superb, much better than the Crusade Die-Cut from the previous year. I’m no LaVar Burton, so I won’t ask you to take my word for it:
I don’t own this card, but I wanted there to be a good comparison.
Aside from the base, there are six parallels and though I am sure I won’t get them all, I want to at least attempt to get a partial rainbow.
