From the Pedro Binder
Does this even count as a card? I suppose it has to, right? It's certainly card size. It's cardboard. It has Pedro on it. It came in a pack of cards. Sounds good to me!
Honestly, I have no idea where I got this card. I want to say it came in a pack of cards of some sort as an advertisement. It was trying to get you to buy player Sportclix when they came out. I didn't. Not even the Pedro. Guess the ad didn't work.
As for the card itself? Well, it features three stars of the day. As far as pitchers go in 2003, this might have been the cream of the crop. The Pedro Clix is a great pose. The angle of the picture, though, makes the base much too obvious. It's like I'm looking at a big green blob, with a little Pedro on top. Maybe an angle more from the top.
There's zero information about Pedro on the front, since he shares the card with two other pitchers. The ad portion is actually nicely tucked up top to allow the three pictures all the room they would need to be enjoyed. I'm actually a little amazed the "Available March 2004" wasn't three times that size to get the point across. But, it wasn't. It makes for a much cleaner card. Wish card companies would take note. Simple can be good. Usually is, in fact.
It was in this case.
