Mike Piazza, I Can See Right Through You!

I picked up this Piazza 90s insert from eBay - where else - a couple of months ago. It's not easily photographed, hence my fat fingers being in the below picture. It comes from 1994 Leaf Slideshow, and when held to light, is see-through. I took a video, but it was pretty damn terrible. So it was deleted rather quickly. Not bad for like a buck forty-nine.

Next, a Russell Westbrook relic I picked up for 99 cents months ago. Never got around to posting it. Here it is now. It becomes my fourth Westbrook relic. I assume him being pictured in his UCLA regalia means the swatch came from said UCLA jersey. Which is just awesome, of course.

Now, we move to something completely different. I urge you all to check out this great new blog that features original sports-related art, 7th Inning Sketch. It's run by Gary Finkler. Here's his take on Frank McCourt.


  1. Back in 1994, those Piazzas were $10 - $20 cards if I remember correctly. You'd pull 2 of the 5 out of a box (if I remember correctly) which made it a fairly easy set to complete so lots of people chased it. Those cards were extremely popular. I think I have the first series set, but never finished the white bordered series 2 set.

  2. $10-$20? Damn. I'm even more happy about the price I got it for. I think it books for about $10 now too.

    I can see why they were popular. They're pretty cool.

  3. This blog describes lot of information that have helped me to realize the importance of sports and the risks that the players handled in it.

  4. Perfect work you have done, this site is really cool with great info .
