Go Red! 2021 Topps Stadium Club Red Foil Chris Sale

February is American Heart Month. As a nod to the Go Red for Women activities going on this month to help raise awareness, I thought I'd contribute several "red" themed posts sprinkled throughout the month.

Let's talk about this card...

This is a really nice card of the Red Sox departed former ace. Stadium Club is known for its photography, and this card is no exception. Sale is nicely framed and the ball is captured in flight. That always makes for a fun element in a show. I suppose if I had one minor criticism, it's the cropping of Sale's left hand. They couldn't shift the picture over a millimeter to avoid cutting off the tip of his index finger?  

Of course, after his run with the Sox, Sale has moved to Atlanta. While he wasn't quite everything we hoped he would be during his time in Boston (Not everyone is Pedro, after all) he brought the city another title and closed out the deciding game in style. That's one of those moments that lives with you, and makes any stint with the Sox a successful one.


I'm sure you all remember Miss District of Columbia
Jude Maboné from her interview with us. Her "heart health" community service initiative is, obviously, quite relevant this month. As such, she's supporting the Simon's Heart campaign this month (and every month). I highly recommend you join her efforts with a donation if you are able. You can find the link here.

Support her efforts, and Go Red!
