Kearns! Baby! Kearns!

Thought I might throw in one of my favorite cards.
2003 Donruss Diamond Kings
Beckett Sample Card

These cards were included in Beckett Baseball back in Aught 3. If you were like me and bought from a newsstand or bookstore you always got there after some punk had ripped opened the plastic on all the magazines to take the cards. So this one was found on the bay by Bay Rat about a month ago. For sale by someone who had 53 others. Wonder how he got them?
This is my favorite year of Diamond King. The bright colors for the set. No dark borders foreshadowing Donruss' leaving baseball. The smile on Austin as his future looks good. Even the final season patch for Riverfront Stadium.

Here is something Austin does not as often but well. A three run shot off the Rockies. Notice how pissed the pitcher is?
