Since Descalso is somehow broken, of course Topps has decided that he should appear in this year's Gypsy Queen set as a relic card. I am trying to put together the Cardinals set, but spending money on DD seems to be a painful proposition. How much is too much for a .200 hitter? I set a budget at $2 to $3 on Descalso and managed to find a copy in that range.
There haven't been too many Descalso relic cards over the years and I am not sure he's exactly the most popular player, so I am going to chalk this card up to being a leftover. Two weeks ago the leftovers were cool when it meant that there were All-Star jerseys in the set, but now that it involves a scrubby player like Descalso I am not sure of their coolness. At least I have this card crossed off my checklist and found it at a basement bargain price. Now, let's call up someone from Memphis.
