Tim Raines 2011 In The Game ‘Heroes & Prospects’ Game-Used Jersey Card
Man, this card is very sweet! Such creativity…
I found this card online while shopping for the Andre Dawson relic from the same set. And while I ultimately lost out on that auction(story of my life), I did score this beauty of Dawson’s favorite teammate and ’30-YOC’ PC member – All-Star Tim Raines.
Issued in February 2011, I knew I wanted to add a few of these cards to my collection as soon as I came across them.
The card is issued by a company called ‘In The Game’, and while they are not licensed to use MLB logos or team names, the product offered up is pretty solid.
Mostly done in shades of Black and White, the card looks fantastic. The little splashes of color that they added, along with the Silver foil stamping, blend very well with the design of the card. And it doesn’t hurt that the company’s logo matches the Montreal Expos’ colors too.
And the big chunk of Raines’ jersey looks great. Nice and big, the piece offers up two colors and two seams.
