This is the story of one such card:
This card I have shown a few times online. I am surprised I never showed it here.

One of the first mentions of the card I'm gonna show I posted about on TCC in a post called "Football Break plus a couple of Harper Sketches".* I also made a small rant about it. "Sort of tired of the card companies making all these minute variations of cards that you have to search 20 different levels of variations just to realize your card is considered the "base" version (even if they do seal it in a hinged case)." Strange I didn't show it on that post, but showed the Bryce Harper sketch cards.

From TCC Forum post #81 in CaptKirk42's Collection thread.
Got some cards from a group break over at TCZ (a sort of younger cousin of TCC cause there are loads of TCC folk there). I'll only show two of the cards from the break I got about 14 more I had Rams/Ravens plus draft teams of Bears/Vikings. Products were:
2012 Panini Absolute
2011 Donruss Elite
2010 Panini Plates & Patches
I got at least 2 cards from each product, most of it was Elite base.
Here are my two fave cards. I'll let the cards do the talking both are from the 2010 Panini Plates & Patches.
89 Danny Amendola Rams Base #d 016/499
Mardy Gilyard Rams Auto (blue sharpie on cut card)
3 color GU (Gold, White w/stitching, Blue) #d 470/699
* The Bryce Harper sketches I mentioned in the original TCC post I blogged about here at Curly W Cards.
