Here's another card I discovered recently in one of the 5,000 count boxes. I have no idea when or where I acquired it, but it's pretty awesome. Granted... I'm one of those people who get distracted to bright, shiny objects.
The card is a Limited Exposure parallel from the 1997 Donruss Limited set. Back then... it was considered a mid to high-end product and was broken down into multiple subsets. Garciaparra and Grudzielanek were paired together and included in the "Counterparts" subset, because they both shared the same position.
Grudzielanek quietly flew under the hobby radar for fifteen seasons, while amassing very respectable career numbers. On the other hand, Nomar is a household name among baseball fans and one of my favorite shortstops to watch back in the late 90's/early 2000's.
Today is Garciaparra's 41st birthday. Happy Birthday Nomah!
Happy Wednesday and sayonara!
