It's been awhile but I'm giving this another go. Once again, with the start of the new year I've narrowed my focus and put together a list of my collecting goals for this year. That'll be another blog.
Today, let's all take a moment and appreciate the beauty of this Topps Allen & Ginter Daniel Nava Oddity Relic. This was a PC item I purchased awhile back and sent to PSA to grade. I was less concerned with the grade, more interested in having it slabbed for protection. This Daniel Nava relic features clippings from his playoff beard. When I've shown/told people about this card, the reactions vary from "cool" to "yuck". I can understand the yuck/creep factor, but personally I find oddball type items and relics like this to be so great.
Plus, being a diehard Boston Red Sox fan, I appreciated Daniel Nava's run with the team and its a nice reminder of their World Series Championship.
Until next time, keep collecting!
