Oddballs From Mars

Mars National Bank that is.....

Thanks to Brian from Collecting Cutch I'm now the proud owner of a very unique Neil Walker set. It seems that Mars National Bank teamed up with the Pittsburgh native and former Bucco to promote the local bank with a set of 4 cards. Always super pumped to add some unique local oddballs. 

While maybe not as prevalent, you can still find some hidden gems. 

Looks to be a shot from Neil's high school days. 

Some Spring Training goodness. 

 Interesting way to get around the licensing.....
 Here Walker is showing off the classic Little League pose.

How about the backs.....

Each have a fact about Neil and then some not so subtle reasons on why you should bank at Mars.

Seriously, how great are these? Thanks so much Brian for sending them my way. More banks need to do this. 

Thanks for reading.


  1. The world needs more oddball sets like this!

  2. Cartoon card backs on an oddball issue. Does it get any better than that?

  3. Sweet, Sweet oddness-they really don't make enough odd ball sets like these-well done Mars, well done.

  4. Those are very cool, local oddballs are the best. The design looks familiar, similar to the 2013 Topps base set.

  5. Glad you enjoyed the cards. There is an oddball I have been on the lookout for 7 years, but have only seen one set sell during that time. It's a 2010 Pepsi Refresh 5x7 card of Cutch. If you ever see one please let me know.

  6. so odd! i like 'em! local cards like these are hard to come by!
