The Kid's Club that is! My endless quest for new and interesting stuff led me to discover this gem, a small giveaway set from the ChiSox Kid's Club. I'm sure that by now you all know that I don't collect the White Sox, but this set has a few players that I like and it definitely fits in with my affinity for oddball issues.
I like Abreu. I won't collect him because a lot of his cards are outside my budget, but it's nice to add cards like this of the Cuban slugger. I especially like it because it's one of the few cards that I own that doesn't show him in that airbrushed throwback Sox uni! I love Robertson(despite the fact that he's a Yankee no more), but it is strange seeing him in the wrong pinstripes(even if this one is airbrushed)!
Check out the card backs. They pack a ton of info on here! I especially like the 'Fun Facts' and the 'Did You Know?' sections. You can definitely tell these were aimed at younger fans.
These complete the 6 card set. Chris Sale is one of my favorite pitchers playing right now, so it was great to add this one to my stack of his cards. I haven't officially decided to start a PC on him just yet, but it may not be far off.
I love the mascot card too! I didn't even realize that the Sox had a mascot. I suppose I should take that as a hint to focus a bit more on the past few years' worth of Opening Day Mascot inserts.
All in all, this is a great little set. If only the Yankees had something similar for me to chase after...or maybe they do and I just haven't discovered it yet!
