Tim's Gauntlet: Day 2
For someone like me, who doesn't collect a lot of newer cards, today's challenge of finding a card from current release year with a unique photo, should've been a difficult one, but it actually ended up being the easiest!
I figured out the other day that I own exactly five cards from 2019-20 sets, with four of those five being from the Prizm basketball set (courtesy of Matt), all of which are very cool, but aren't exactly what I would call "unique". Thankfully though, my only other new card, which came from one of Rod's daily giveaways, does have a unique photo (at least in this humble blogger's opinion it does), and was the first thing that came to mind when I saw Tim's list of daily challenges...
The reflective nature of Babe's appearance is what drew me to the card, and even after having it for several weeks now, it's appeal still hasn't worn off. Of course now that I've gone and used it for this post, I'm sure that someone out there is going to tell me that this particular image of the Babe has been used in 14 other sets over the last couple of years, and therefor isn't "unique", but I had never seen it on a card before, so it's "unique" to me.
Looks like another challenge is in the books, and the good news is, even though they're not written yet, I've at least got the cards in mind for days 3-6, but have no idea what to do for day 7 -- I guess then it's a good thing that I have a couple of days to think about it :)
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
