CC: He Helped Make a Silk Purse Out of a Sow's Ear

It seems as if the CrazySexyCool 2009 CC Sabathia cards have started to emerge. Well...maybe not Sexy, unless dudes that clock in just shy of three bills is your thing. But these cards are CrazyCool, which is what CC really should stand for, at least in a Third Alternate Holiday Road Jersey Nickname sort of way. The Milwaukee card universe has been real good to me lately, and the CC Project is going superbly as a result.

Scholars are still unsure what part of the jersey these swatches were cut from, but word has it that when the tests come back from the lab, they're going to come back "paunch."

What if 2009 Topps had a base set that looked like this? Just throwing it out there.

Damn it feels good to be a gangsta.

Did you ever own a card that you had a feeling you didn't deserve? I do feel kind of bad owning a CC card printed on pure silk when there are starving children in Africa. But do you know what it feels like through the little window Topps put on the front? It feels like playoffs.

I'm glad Topps didn't go with the black borders for the base set this year. I hated the 2007 set for using them. That was the one year I was grateful for Topps Opening Day.

CC is solid, not fat.

Trust me on this one.
