PLAYERS: Matt Kemp
TEAMS: Los Angeles Dodgers
I recently landed one of the most aesthetically-pleasing cards I own. From 2013 Bowman Platinum, it's a Cutting Edge Stars bat slice from The Bison, #'d 04/50.My newest Mattycakes was had via eBay for just $8.14 delivered, a surprisingly low sum. I really dig the die-cut design and the fact that Topps went with a piece of bat rather than a simple jersey swatch.
