Awesome night card, pt. 146
Yes, here's another reminder of one of the lowest moments in Dodgerdom.
But everyone just needs to tough it out. The Dodgers just got shut out three straight games by the Giants. Do they deserve anything better from me?
I told you this stretch of the schedule was going to kill them.
Anyway, this card came from Bo of Baseball Cards Come to Life! He sent a bunch of night cards, which you will be seeing here and there. And he sent some Dodger needs, too, which you'll see in another post.
This card, of one of Reggie's three home runs in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series, features a famous image from that game. It's a classic shot from a classic set, 2007 Masterpieces.
However, it's not the 2007 Masterpieces that I know.
The Masterpieces cards that I know have the canvas feel that made them famous. You know. Paintings (or faux paintings) on canvas. Right?
This card is glossy.
I wasn't part of the blog constituency in 2007. Were these glossy Masterpieces cards common knowledge? How were they packaged? Was it part of a box set? Did they come in packs?
And why would anyone want Masterpieces Glossy after seeing Masterpieces on Canvas?
I know. I know. Every modern card must be glossy. And feature foil.
It's a disease.
I'm sure I could find out the answer to this with a couple minutes of research. But this is my last act on a computer for the night and I'm not prolonging it looking up things that shouldn't be. Especially if means adding cards to my want list.
Besides, I need my sleep. I have to prepare for the sweep by the Mets coming up this weekend.
