Cynicalbuddha's Top 100 #11

Once again we venture back to 2005 for the next card on the Top 100.  It's hard not to like Yaz.  A 22year franchise Boston guy, HOFer, and baseball icon.  When I pulled this I was blown away, yes again.  I'm no Boston fan, but come on this card is pretty cool.  2005 had some great stuff.  Lots of things make this card great.  First, it's serial numbered to 39!  At the time this was one of my lowest numbered cards ever. Second, the relic has a seam in it.  It would have been better with some color, but at least it's got texture and the card actually says it came from a pair of pants.  Third, we have a 72 year old baseball centennial commemorative stamp on the card.  The stamp is cataloged in Scott's as No. 855 and worth a little over 2 bucks uncancelled.    So #11 in the Top 100...
