Game 7 Inspired Single Card Post

There has been high drama in the World Series this year. We sit in anticipation of tonight's winner take all game seven and I couldn't be happier! Mostly because I've been all in pulling for the Cubs and they've been able to stave off elimination for two straight games, but also because there is nothing more entertaining than the anything can happen feel of a single game to determine the WS champion. Of course, it's easy for me to say that when the Yankees are not involved and my emotional investment  isn't at its peak. Sorry to all the Cubs and Tribe fans out there, I hope you all make it through the game without too much suffering.

Anyway, a few weeks back I decided to take a chance on a razz in a Facebook breakers group. The prize was a box of 2016 Topps Triple Threads. I was surprised to actually win! The breaker let me choose a box on FB live and I watched as he cracked my prize. There was no HUGE hits, but I was playing with house money, so I was thrilled to just get some of these in hand for the first time. It seems particularly appropriate to share one particular card from said box.

Game six hero, Addison Russell! The scan really doesn't do this card justice. Besides the fact that Russell delivered 6 RBIs last night, there is another reason I feel this is a great card to share today. Just check out the message made by the relics. One's enough. This has obviously been the team's outlook for the past two games and it has resulted in their season continuing. On the final day of the 2016 season, one more game is enough to bring a third World Series championship to Chicago. Go Cubbies!


  1. Very nice (and timely) pick up. I don't know if my heart can take all of this excitement though!

    1. Hang in there Tony! At least this excitement and potential is better than he disappointment of previous seasons.

  2. I'm with you Tim, no horse in the race but just excited to watch a World Series Game 7. If the Cubbies win it that Russell card will become even more significant than it is now!

  3. Addison Russell 2016! That is a sick card.

  4. Nice win and definitely a good looking card
