This is the last of the cards that I got in the trade which I featured in my previous post, but I figured it deserved a post of its own.
As anyone that follows this blogs already knows, I'm a big fan of oddball cards, as well as weird regional sets. It used to be that anywhere you went (Kaybee, Toys 'R Us, Woolworth's, etc.) you'd find their own set of baseball cards. These have definitely gone by the wayside, along with including baseball cards on/in packages of food such as Mother's Cookies or Granny Goose potato chips.
This card was produced for the Red Sox in 2002, and I can only assume that it was as a game-day giveaway, although I can't confirm that it was actually the case. The official Beckett description of this cards is "2002 Red Sox Poland Spring 10," and it's one of Rickey's last cards not produced by one of the major manufacturers.
Although not a "high value" card, this is one of my favorite recent acquisitions. It was produced by Grandstand, which is more well known as a producer of minor league team seats, but must also produced regional issues as well.
