The 100 Best Finds in a 30-Dollar Lot: #45

I just realized that it's been awhile since I've shown one of the jersey cards from the lot, so here's a fun one. There's still a bunch more, too.

2005 Upper Deck All-Star Classics Midsummer Swatches #MS-ER Edgar Renteria

This looks to be one of those cards that comes in one of those Fairfield guaranteed-jersey card repacks with three or four unopened packs. Whoever pulled it first just decided to leave it in its Zip-Loc baggie and pass it on to the next guy. Since that guy is me, I'd like to take the time to point out that UD is certifying that "On the front of this card is an authentic piece of a jersey worn by Edgar Renteria in an official Cardinals® Major League Baseball® game." It's odd that they would be that specific, considering he's wearing a Red Sox jersey on the card. Not too weird, since 2004 was his final season with St. Louis, just interesting.

weird, I've actually written the same thing about this exact card:
