DATA: 2009 Upper Deck A Piece of History Timeless Moments (TM-JV 042/149)
ACQUIRED: Cincy Reds Cards
PING: Joe from Cincy Reds Cards recently sent me a nice package of cards including my two favorite players – Joey Votto and Barry Larkin. This Timeless Moments card was included and one of my favorites. I like this card a lot more than I expected to. It’s got a nice finish to it, good thickness and the design is better than average. The Upper Deck logo in the top left corner kills it a little bit… something the UP logo does a lot with their designs. This design is a huge step up from last year’s A Piece of History design as well. This particular card is number out of 149 – kinda odd. I have been unable to locate a checklist for this set, so I’m not sure what other parallels, if any, are available of this card.
Thanks again to Joe for the card. More cards from that package coming soon.
By the way, this article on Joey and the family in Dayton that hosted him while he played with the Dragons is a must-read.
