There are certain cards I'll only go after if the price is right. It may be that I already have the card but want another copy; the card is of someone I don't really collect; or, as is the case with today's showcase, the card is of a guy I really like but it's just far too hokey for my liking.
1/1 blank backs truly suck for someone like myself who is almost exclusively a player collector. I know it was just created to make money for the company, but dammit if it exists and can be had without breaking the bank I want it. Also, I'm a bit OCD and insane, which makes this addition easier to explain.
It's beyond quirky and gimmicky, yes, but it was had for a very reasonable price and is a welcome addition to my modest but growing Ellis Collection.
