Big Mac of the Week - Week 3

Week 3 of this here series.  Here are weeks 1 and 2.

This weeks entry is a 1997 Leaf "Dress for Success" insert.

The front is canvas and the Athletics text is slightly raised.  Feels pretty cool.  I enjoy cards that the manufacturer took extra steps on.  This is a good pose and layout IMO as well.
Here is the back.  Unlike the front, this is a slick, glossy finish.  Very jarring at first glance, but then I saw the serial numbering and decided it was all good.  You can tell from Mark's body language here what a speed demon he was!  Built like a cheetah, right?

Ha ha, come back next week for more!

I love older serial numbered cards. I have an A-Rod numbered out of 10000. It's kind of hilarious.

Awesome card! I'll be tracking one of these down sooner or later.
