From the Pedro Binder

1999 UD Choice

It’s weird, sometimes, how the simplest cards end up being the best.

Take this card. There’s nothing to it. It’s not flashy. It’s not high end. There’s really nothing going for it. But, it ends up as an almost perfect card.

Look at all the information on the card. Player name, team, position. Even Pedro’s number. What more could I ask for? And, look at the UD choice logo. It’s nicely tucked away in the corner. In fact, all the information is stuffed in the bottom of the card, allotting the picture to have full reign over the top. The information isn’t crammed, either. It’s nicely laid out with colorful graphics. Well done.

I like the border to. It’s stupid, but the two rounded corners really add something for me. It’s a little bit of attractiveness, that’s barely noticeable. Those are the best kinds of additions. Ones that you don’t even realizes that you’re enjoying.

The picture itself is nothing special, but it doesn’t need to be either. It’s tightly cropped to make Pedro the main focus. This is clearly a Pedro Martinez card.

And a darn nice one at that.
