This one comes from my Freddie Freeman collection and, if my memory serves me correctly, MAY very well be the first Freddie card I ever procured.
Pack pulled, of course! This would have been back in the first few months of my return to our hobby. So very exciting, confusing and wondrous.....but it was cards like this that gave me a sense of familiarity and a connection to the hobby I had taken a hiatus from over twenty years ago.
This is a Freddie Freeman card. It is a rookie card....and it is good.
Yeah, so this doesn't quite fit into the modern, strict definition of "rookie card" as I would come to learn over the past couple of years.....but it works for me! Here's the back:
Again, very basic - probably thought to be quite boring by most modern collectors. But I love it! Heck, it's commemorative, don't you know!?
My Freddie collection has come a long way since that fateful day but this card will always have a special place in my Freddie Freeman collection.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
