This bad boy is currently on eBay(with a really high bid already and 4+ days to go before closing). Yeah, I know that mascot relic cards have been done before, but this guy is pretty much the father of all mascots.

I'm also a fan of any unique relic materials since the standard bat chips and jersey swatches often feel stale. This is a perfect match of those two worlds for me. So, today my quest to procure one of these begins. Tomorrow I can resume with my regularly planned posts. Are any of you as excited about this card as I am? Thanks for reading!
