CC: Electron Microscopy Edition

These two may actually be some of the first cards depicting CC as a Brewer, but they eluded my grasp for so long because of a lack of scrutiny on my part. Flipping through these cards quickly would not afford one the time necessary to determine their Milwaukee origins without the aid of a magnifying glass. Or perhaps a pince-nez.

Turning these cards over to their backsides more firmly solidifies the gelatin in which each card is suspended. A Brewers insignia makes these a worthy part of my collection.

Looks like CC's throwing the first official pitch at the Yankees' new stadium tonight. I, for one, wish him the best.
