How acquired: $4.24 on ebay
Condition: Fair
Despite no major flaws (at least by my low standards) this card manages to have a very beat up feel.  It just looks dirty to me.  The color fading is kind of strange (you can see it better on the back).   I'm not sure what would cause fading like that, it almost looks like it was exposed to heat.  For my purposes, this card is completely acceptable, it's just not one of my favorites.

Best Hall of Fame Showing: N/A

Inducted to Red Sox Hall of Fame in 1997
