Behind the Plate Plate
I'm a bit surprised I got this card at such a low price. Sure, Gerald Dempsey "Buster" Posey isn't super-hot, but he's a Rookie of the Year and MVP, and a five-time All-Star, four time Silver Slugger, and one-time Gold Glove. In his first nine seasons, only seven of those being full seasons.
Of course, I'm not talking about some regular (variation) base card. I'm talking about a 1/1 printing plate. This card is headed for my type collection, but who knows? In 10 years, it might be really valuable. Or not. Time will tell!
I gotta say, though, for all the complaining people do about Panini and Donruss, I generally enjoy a few of their products each year, just like I do with Topps. That's a good picture, team colors are represented even though Panini can't tell you the team, and the design is decent. It's a little busy, but this isn't Stadium Club, so that's okay. I always look forward to Donruss, even with all of its faults.
