I had no intentions of heading to Walmart to buy the Marketside pizza in order to get the cards. It is not that I had anything against the pizza, it was just that the Pirates only had one player on the checklist (McCutchen). Being a former college student and bachelor through most of my 20's frozen pizza was an essential part of the diet! Now my wife makes sure I eat healthy. I try to tell her Pizza Rolls are an essential part of the diet, but I don't think she bought it.
So as with most of my card purchases these days I started browsing eBay. Being that the card was not all that rare it could be had for a couple of bucks. So why did I title this Marketside Stupidity.......????
When I noticed this card on auction my initial thought process was "hey this would make a cool oddball even cooler." When I got the card in hand I was much less enthusiastic about the purchase. In theory the price was great for a Cutch 1/1 (around $25), its just that I like more pizazz with my 1/1's. You like for rare cards to standout and this card is pretty plain Jane.
Later this week I will be showing a few of these blank backs that I actually do like and serve a much better purpose in my collection. For now feel free to make fun of this purchase in the comments section. I'm sure I'll agree with everything you say.
Thanks for reading!
