From the Pedro Binder

2003 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia


There is just so much going on here.

First, the name of the set is terrible. It has nothing to do with memorabilia. There isn’t a piece of anything in the card. The picture doesn’t feature a specific piece of Pedro’s memorabilia. It’s just a name in order to be a name. Terrible.

Beyond that, I don’t know what to make of the front of the card. ‘ve been staring at the blurry splotches in the background for a little bit too long trying to decide if they’re supposed to be something. A crowd shot, perhaps. But, I can’t come up with anything They’re just splotches.

To be fair, the card does have a nice shine that doesn’t show up at all in the scan. So, those bizarre rectangles all over the place aren’t quite as noticeable. But, they’re still noticeable.

And still pointless.

Apparently Playoff really wanted us to know that card was from 2003. That’s nice of them, really, since with the 36,000 brands that were produced around then, it’s almost impossible to keep track of which design goes with which year. But, isn’t it enough to have the year in the logo? Does it need to be right in the middle of the card as well?

Why is Pedro’s name tucked on the side facing out? 

The actual picture of Pedro is actually a nice one. Pedro getting ready to deal another blow to a batter’s ego. But, there’s so much other stuff going on, you can barely notice.

So confusing.
