I haven’t decided whether this is a good idea or not. Either way, it’s still pretty entertaining. Via SBD….
SNY prior to tonight’s (last night’s) Braves-Mets game at Shea Stadium will distribute 35,000 baseball cards created by Upper Deck featuring SNY’s Mets broadcast team of Kevin Burkhardt, Gary Cohen, Ron Darling, Julie Donaldson, Keith Hernandez, Lee Mazzilli and Matt Yalloff. Each pack distributed will also include an entry card for a chance to win ’08 season tickets.
Are the New York broadcasters that popular that you would even want a trading card from them? Seems like a waste of money to me, but I wouldn’t turn them down. I also can’t wait until the market gets flooded, and like real baseball cards, they start coming out with the crazy inserts. Here’s a few ideas off the top of my head….add yours to the comments if you’d like….
- A Chris Berman Jersey card, but with a portion of a Leather Coat attached.
- A curl of John Kruk’s crusty hair in place of a crusty stick of gum.
- A Set of different Craig Sager Suit cards with a piece of one of his more famous ones on each card.
P.S.- On the back of the Keith Hernandez card in block lettering it says, “I’m Keith Hernandez.”
