Canadian Pride

2006 UD Sweet Spot Update Jason Bay Quad Patch

Relic week continues!

I lost a little of my cardboard momentum this week since my daughter got sick. Just like her to big time me like that. Damn preschool is a germ cesspool. My wife also works in a hospital so even if you take every precautionary measure it is impossible to keep a four year old from getting sick.  She owes me an eBay gift card. Doesn't she know I have cards to sort. 

For those who don't follow this sort of thing, WBC relics tend to be pretty popular on the secondary market. Being that Bay is one of my all time favorites I tend to grab these Team Canada inspired versions whenever they come up. While not overly expensive these tend to sell for $ than what a normal Bay Pirates patch would sell for. Canadian pride is strong! 2006 was the first year of the WBC as well so that might play a little into the pricing as well.

UD went all in that first year with the WBC.  I recall flagship UD, SPX and Sweet Spot all having some sort of WBC cards in them.  Probably the funnest thing about the WBC is watching teams like Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Venezuela play.  A lot of pride on those teams and most of the stars get rostered.  

Thanks for reading!

  3. Hope your daughter feels better soon. Teaching preschool was one of the best life decisions I ever made. I was sick five or six times that first year. But after that... I had the immune system of Superman. These days... middle school germs barely have any affect on me ;)

    P.S. Sick patch!

    1. Took her a long time to kick this one, but we are much better. Between my wife working in a hospital and my daughter being a preschooler, germs are likely prospering at my house. You can only prevent so much.

    1. I concur in the context of Jason Bay.
