In the hopes of finding a Paul Goldschmidt in the pack I thumbed through it quickly. Alas, no Godly in sight, but in the center lay a card no one ever imagines getting in a free promotional pack of cards...

I was in disbelief. Frankly, I still can't believe I have this card in my possession.
A part of me felt bummed for my friend that he wasn't the one to pull this card. He's had a tough go of it this year with work and relationships, and I would've loved to see him be the one to pull this (not that baseball cards can or ever will fix people's problems). Knowing that this card doesn't really fit into either of our collections, I decided to put it up for sale on eBay. With the money I get from it, I'll be able to send a thank you gift back to my friend - A 2017 Allen & Ginter Hobby box. He's been wanting to rip into a box of cards but has held off all year because of his job situation. He has no idea I'm doing this, which makes the experience of it that much more fun!
Thanks for reading!
