A Quandary Courtesy of The Troll




No not the Grumpy Old Troll From under the bridge.** 


Here is where the quandary comes in. Marck sent me a few cards and in the package was this Damon card. I am really appreciative of the cards but this one causes a problem for me.




See this is a 08 Upper Deck Timeline card.  By the time this card came out Damon was with the Yankees for years. Heck even Upper Deck designates it as a Yankee card. The problem with that is he is obviously in a red Sox uniform in the picture. Not only that unless the Yanks have a red alternate jersey I have never seen that is obviously Red Sox material. So now I have to decide if this thing fits in my Red Sox collection or not. For right now I am going to leave it in my Red Sox collection. But man, it is hard to do because it isn’t just a different team it is the freaking Yankees.

Everyone go check out the Trolls blog and while you are there sign up for his group break.  It isn't your normal group break, this one costs no money only trade cards.  Right now he has 11 teams left so hurry and go fill them up. 


**I know I watch to much Dora but I have a 2 and 5 year old, so what am I supposed to do.

Upper Deck should be ashamed for creating a card like that.

Oh, wait, they have no shame.

I don't know which would be worse. Putting the card out like this or If they would have put a Yankee picture on it with a red swatch?

Sorry man, I saw long hair and red and didn't look any further...

forget Dora, go for Bear in A Big Blue House.
Much better.

Personally, I treat cards like these based on the designation, not the uni. I turned down a WBC refractor Punto because he was an Italian, not a Twin (even though he IS a Twin).

Still, that card swatch creeps be out -- it looks like it's from his underpants based on it's location.

That just goes to show you how many leftover swatches they probably have laying around their facilities. They must hate it when guys switch teams.
