Justin Verlander 2014 Panini Prizm Prizms Blue Mojo (#50/75)
This is the one card out of the trio you'll see on this here blog. It's a beautiful blue parallel of Verlander's 2014 Prizm card, and as you can see it's numbered out of 75. Panini went with a blue hue that's definitely up my alley as I tend to prefer darker versions of it, though Topps has gotten it right at times themselves. As always with Panini, the lack of license issue comes up, but as usual I can't say it bothers me on a card like this where the rest of the photo and the cool border take your focus away from what's "missing." The "Mojo" part of the insert name is a bit goofy, but it's not really being used in the same lame-ass context as box-breaking forum-dwellers, so that's not a negative either. Overall it's a very nice addition to my Verlander PC and I'm happy to have landed it in this deal.
Tune in to TMM for the other two cards in the package--the ones I'd consider the REAL highlights of the trade. Thanks again for an easy deal, Eric, and I hope we can make another one soon!
