|On an early Thursday morning in the middle of February in 2005, my 9+ month pregnant wife and I went in for a non-stress test and a ultra-sound to get an idea when we should hope to see the new addition to our family. We were told that we would be there for around an hour and be sent home. I took the morning off from work fully intending to go in the afternoon, but plans changed and the nurse told us that we, well at least my wife, weren't going home without our son. Around 30 hours later my wife and I became parents of a literally bouncing baby boy. Three years later his sister came along. Children change outlook on life. You are now responsible for someone else's life and well being.|
It has been over 2 months since I last did a top ten, so I thought it would be cool to do a top ten George Brett cards that have been produced since I became a dad in 2005, in honor of Fathers Day. I will say that this era of cards do not hold as dear of a place in my heart as ones from his playing days, starting 3 decades earlier, but there are a few gems. My top ten lists, unless otherwise stated, are limited to cards that I currently own. The lists are strictly base on my opinion. Cards might be listed because they have some memorable back story, cool design, or something that simply sticks out, too me, about them. Feel free to comment, I love talking to other collectors. To check out the front and back of all of these cards and over 1000 other George Brett cards click here at "The Unofficial George Brett Card Catalog" and check out my website.
Top Ten George Brett Cards Produced Since Becoming a Dad
10. 2013 Panini Father's Day Museum Collection #MC1
It's hard not to pick a card that came out on Father's Day. Nice design and I like the colors, but I would have liked the border to be a bit narrower.
9. 2005 Bazooka Fun Facts Relics #GB (Game Used Bat Piece)
This was the first memorabilia card I ever bought. It was fairly cheap and "Fun Fact" it's fun to look at.
