As soon as I saw this card on Achiever Card Blog I wanted it. It isn't a normal Pedroia mini or even one of those god-awful back parallels. This is an extended mini #360 of "The Laser Show". You could only get one of these in a Rip card. A quick e-mail to Motherscratcher reserved the card while I scrambled to find some sort of Tribe card for him. I was bare of Tribe hits so I made another trade to get something to send him. Pedrioa soon arrived in my mailbox with some other stuff.
He also sent a shiny Papelbon rookie. I'm not sure if this is a parallel or not but either way it is nice, shiny, and I didn't have it.
He also sent along some junk wax. I'm only posting one of them here.
These are 1989 Topps Mini Leaders (I think). Out of the 3 packs he sent I didn't get any Red Sox but check out this pack. In 89 I would have loved to bust this one.
