My scanner seems to take a perverse joy out of enhancing any flaws present in the cards I own. I recently got this card at a show, and it’s nowhere near as bad in person… in fact, I hadn’t even noticed it until I scanned it.
I added this card near the top of my wantlist as soon as I found out about it… I mean, who can resist a card of Podres on the Padres? It makes you wonder if the Padres got him mainly because his name is Podres.
Podres of the Padres is right up there with Dave Philley of the Phillies… I mean, how many instances of such a thing could there possibly be? Jim Brewer never pitched for the Brewers… Reggie Cleveland never pitched for the Indians, nor did Daryl Boston ever play for the Red Sox.
