Hey Bert!

This is what Card US58 is supposed to look like:

Not bad, especially because it's Lincecum. I need one for my PC, anyway. But this is what the US58 I pulled looks like:

Holland's greatest living ballplayer, Rik Adelbert Aalbert Blyleven.

What's the name of that particular type of diamond parallel? Port wine stain?

    Very nice looking short print. That's probably my second favorite short print from this year's set, behind the Robin Roberts I pulled early this fall. And I think the Liquorfractor treatment looks GReat on this one. That version does not always enhance the cards but I think this one does.

    And I'd probably be a monkey's uncle if I did not point out today's word verification: chimp

    I have to agree, it does look pretty good. That said, if somebody has a legends short print of a player from a team I collect, it's up for trade.

    I'd like it better if it were a Twins Blyleven card, but that's just a greedy Twins fan talking.

    ...and I could be wrong, but I think that type of parallel is called Cognac.
