So, by now you should know my story about being screwed when I bought my first Game Used Jersey Card. If not, take a minute to read about my Fergie Jenkins Game Used jersey card.
But, I couldn’t resist trying this again. With some of the feedback I got as well as doing a little on-line research I wanted to give it another shot as I find these cards very appealing and didn’t want one experience to ruin my feelings for the entire gimmick.
Check this out:
Pretty sweet huh? I am a big Dave Winfield fan and when I saw this on Ebay for only $2.50 I figured the risk was worth the reward.
Then I got it in the mail… I was so eager to read on the back of the card that this piece of bat was taken from a bat used by Winfield during a Yankee game. But again I have been fooled. “You have received a Dave Winfield game-used baseball card. On the front of this card is a piece of memorabilia that has been certified to us as having been used in an official Major League Baseball game. We hope you enjoy this piece of MLB history, as we continue to keep you as close to the game as you can get.”
Talk about an impersonal message. Jeez, 1 once knew someone that dated someone that was the babysitter for your uncle. I mean come on, this is ridiculous. These cards are being peddled around as a piece of the game that the fan can own at a reasonable price. But, truth be told, nobody knows where this piece of wood came from and there is no way that there could be any proof that Dave Winfield ever came within 100 miles of it.
That’s it. I am officically done with all Game Used memorabilia cards!!! 100% DONE!!! Am I expecting more than what I believe these cards are supposed to deliver?
