Game-Used Goodness

I am gearing up (yes, pun completely intended!) for the 2009 Tribecards Scratch-card Tournament that will take place next season. In the process of securing autographed, game-used, and serially-numbered cards, I bought a group of about 20 cards. Not all of the cards were listed in the auction, so I only had a vague idea of what I was getting. In among the other cool cards were TWO TRIBERS!!

I got Pronk'd! The top card is a 2008 Upper Deck "A Piece of History" Franchise History game-used ... umm... well, I don't know. Is it a jersey? Pants? Sock? All we know from the back is that it is a 'piece of memorabilia.' Works for me!

The bottom card is Victor Martinez, who spent the season watching Shoppach kick some serious catching butt! His card is also a 2008 UD "A Piece of History," but this one is a Stadium Scenes card. The image in the background says "Jacobs Field" (the way it should be), but on the back it reads "Progressive Field." There's not even an asterisk on it. You know, something that says, "*The name of the stadium was changed after the Indians decided they wanted to receive a huge chunk of change from a corporate sponsor in order to finance players that will mature into great ballplayers immediately before or just after they are traded away." Something like that...
