1998 Jason Kendall Fleer Ultra Platinum Medallion /100
Jason Kendall is a cardboard God. I guess his hard nosed style was easy to capture. Whatever the case he is one of the more enjoyable players to find rare parallels of during my favorite time period. Case in point this Platinum Medallion from Ultra.
I was excited to see one of these pop up for regular auction on eBay. Quite a few are listed but have high BIN prices. The card itself has a textured feel and the nameplate area really pops. I think I actually like the base card a little better, but this version is so unique that I had to have it.
The price range for these tend to be in the $5-$10 range for non stars and can reach well over $100 for the mega stars. This is where it helps to collect Pirates. Kendall and Brian Giles were just about the only ones worth chasing.
Thanks for reading!
