I had posted a new card of Rays prospect, and Durham Bulls pitcher, Nate Karns about a week ago with the goal of adding a few more of his cards during the off season. I always put autographs above other cards, when I am collecting single cards of a player, but since Karns only has one certified autograph I have moved on to some of his other cool cards.
I was excited to see that he was featured in the Topps Pro Debut Logo Patch set. This is also one of my favorite sets that Topps puts out every year. There is almost always a cool Durham Bulls patch in there and a few other nice Minor League logos to pick up. The Montgomery Biscuits are almost always a must have too.
The Karns patch was not too hard to find, but I was a little bit disappointed when I saw the card. I am not sure I really dig some of the Minor League teams that just borrow their nickname from their Major League club. Potomac Nationals? We can't do better than that? Wasn't this team the Cannons at one point? That sounds much more like a Minor League baseball team.
It's still one of the most unique Karns cards out there, so I am happy to add it to my growing collection of Karns cards. The card is limited to just 75 copies.
