Featured Card: 2011 Topps Black Diamond Wrapper Redemption #2, Roy Halladay
11 days ago, I pulled out a Halladay card in a honor of a scheduled start against the Astros, hoping that it could appease the baseball gods thus bringing an end to a two-game skid and allowing them to clinch a fifth-straight division title. It worked, but now the Phillies are eight games into their longest losing streak in over 10 years. The panic amongst Phillies fans is now palpable — we’re starting to sound like Red Sox fans, even though we’re guaranteed the top seed throughout the postseason (provided we advance all the way to the World Series). Sounds like it’s time to play the Terminator gambit card again. The only way to compete with a Halladay autograph card (truth be told, you can’t beat one) is to bring out the sparkles. Hence, today’s featured card.
Here’s to hoping that I have appeased the baseball gods again.
