2013 Card-vent Calendar: December 14

December 14, 2013:
1995-96 Upper Deck Collector's Choice #242 Alan Henderson

Oh man.

What did the guy ever do to warrant such treatment? A four year starter at IU, got accepted to two different medical schools upon graduation, you'd think he was a smart guy. All of a sudden it's, "Hello, NBA!"

There's so much wrongness here. The ladder, the soft focus, the jaunty positioning. I mean, how much glass block do you need? Alan, I want to reach out to you on behalf of Upper Deck and apologize. You deserve better than this. Someday, you'll be able to set foot again in the mall where this horrible crime was perpetrated. An 8-by-10, three wallet sizes, and a 15-minute sitting with choice of background for $19.95 is no match for a man's soul.

Thank goodness I've got another one of these to open tonight.

Wow. I broke a lot of 95/96 Collector's Choice and can't understand how this card never stood out to me. Wow.
