Manufacture: Upper Deck
Insert Series: Goodwin Preview
Card Number: GCP-11
How I got the card: Through a trade with Beardy from Beardy’s Baseball Blog
I got this card awhile back from Beardy, this just does not look anything like the 2009 Goodwin Champions. This card is very special to me. When I got this card, it started the interest and drive to start this blog. At the time I had a lot of random, unorganized Ripken cards every where. After the arrival of this card, I started to think about how incredible his career really was. I mean, who has not missed a single day of work/ school in roughly 17 years!! So I figured why not put most of my collecting efforts to the pursuit of a majority of the 12,ooo+ cards of Ripken Jr.
So thank you again Beardy for helping me organize my collecting goals!
