This is the first and only 1/1 hit I ever got. I haven't ripped a printing plate or a super red xfratolisious card ever, I do however own a few now. And this was originally a redemption. I put in my code and waited over half a year and got this bad boy. The redemption didn't specify who I was going to get, just a 1/1 original sketch card.
The artist is Justin Chung. He's done stuff for Topps and all sorts of non-sports card sets. Check out his website here.
I posted about this card early last year when I got it. You can read that oldie here. I especially love the one comment I got on that post. Not really a Mets or Delgado fan, but a kick ass sketch card is hard to let go of. I wonder how long it took Justin to illustrate this one? Or how many he had to whip out for this set?
I can't remember what series this is from either, but I'm betting Series 1.
Anyway, #12 on the Top 100
