oh, that card in the middle. it was this.not sure where the 'r' comes in, but still. i am not a fan of manufactured patches (although i have all the ones upper deck created for steve garvey) but i must say this card looks pretty nice. it's numbered 47/50 and will probably wind up on ebay.

good times.

Yeah, I don't get the nickname letter patches either, but whatever.

the "R" probably comes from New YoRk
