Padres Card O' The Day: Brad Brach's 2011 Bowman Platinum Prospects Purple Refractor #BPP70

The title of this post is an allusion to Orioles Card O' The Day, which is one of my favorite baseball card blogs. I've been checking it every day for years and, true to its name, he has a new post up just about each time. I guess it stands to reason that someone who grew up watching Cal Ripken, Jr. would be so reliable.

Maybe by next summer he'll have a card of Brad Brach in a Baltimore uniform to blog about. For now, all the world has is cards of Brach in Padres threads. This is the first card I got of Brad Brach; it's a 2011 Bowman Platinum Prospects Purple Refractor. Yeesh, that's a bunch of words. Too many, if you ask me. A parallel to a subset to a side brand... man, I miss the days when you opened a pack of cards, saw a guy, and knew that was the last card of him you'd be seeing from that brand until next year. Yeah, I'm old. Disillusioned, too. Enjoy your hobbies until greedy, out-of-touch people ruin them like they ruined mine.
