2009 Topps 206 Chrome Joey Votto. The base version of this card made it to the semi-finals of the Ugly Card Tournament. Then I saw this parallel and it's EVEN UGLIER. My goodness. I had to have it. It's also serial numbered out of 999 or something.
2004 Bowman Sterling Bat Relics Adam Dunn. After Donkey Week here at Red Cardboard I got the urge to buy my first relics in a while. I'm so weak.
2007 Ultimate Collection Ultimate Stars Adam Dunn. Forgot to scan it so I snagged the pic from the invoice. Good lookin'.
