One Met at a Time, Vol. 10
[Ed. Note: I recently surpassed the 8k mark in my Mets collection, so I thought it would be a fun idea to start picking through the cards one-by-one and presenting them here. So, that's what this is. Enjoy!]
Player Name: Jeff Kent
Card Info: 1995 Sportflix, #30
Normally, getting a Sportflix card to scan properly is normally akin to putting a tutu on a weasel. Not necessarily impossible but statistically very difficult to accomplish. [Ed. Note: That's entirely a guess on my behalf and I don't have any hard data to support it, but I have a strong hunch a weasel has never worn a tutu.] For some reason, though, the '95 Sportflix cards have treated my scanner and me quite decently. I guess the planets aligned -- and the weasel reluctantly donned the tutu -- in the case of the attractive scan you see above.
At the time of this post, there are 70 Jeff Kent cards in my Mets collection.
