avert your eyes - twice!

what is that?  and why is it encased?
well, i am pretty sure that it is an autographed 1989 donruss mike scioscia card that has been mutilated so that a 2008 tristar signa cut card could be made.  i still don't know why this particular card from that issue is encased.  the plaque says 'limited edition' so maybe that's why.

still, it's not as rare as this other scioscia card i have from the set, which is numbered out of 5.  this one is his 1981 topps rookie card all chopped up
it looks better on its side
i will admit that i thought about removing the signed part of this card and slapping it on my copy of the full card that is missing only scioscia's auto.  i think i will hold out for a different opportunity to finish that card off, however.

I don't know how I feel about these. Wait, no, I do. I'm resentful that they're cutting up cards to fit them into other cards.

Lol, ironic mess. Hmm we need to make cut signature cards, but all we have are signed cards. Now some needs to take that cut signature card and cut it to make a new cut signature card. It will be the double mirror infinite reflection thingy.

I feel the need to protest every time i see one, yet i buy any unique Garvey from the set I can find. it's a disease!

The worst card idea EVER!

I'm not sure what's worse... your cut up Scioscia rookie card autograph or my Sax signed Avery label that Tristar inserted into their Signa Cuts card. Either way... both cards are examples of "cardfoolery".
