After cleaning out two boxes I paid a visit to one of my all-time favorite materials cards. A 2005 Playoff Absolute John Buck Relic Card.
As a baseball fan I am completely aware of who John Buck is and his incredible .163 batting average this season. I love the card because it is one of the most unique relics cards I own in my collection. Yes, I have big patches and cool pieces of patches and low numbered bats and jerseys. When have you ever gotten a shin guard or chest protector on a baseball card? In some ways I do not miss the Playoffs and Donruss sets that overpopulated the card markets in the late 90's, but they did make a cool relic card or too.
