Sentators Singles: Jordan Zimmermann Triple-T

Jordan Zimmermann
Here is another one of these things. This card was one of my first GU/Auto combination cards I got from a group break. That is my story and I'm sticking to it. I forget if it might have been a redemption? Anyway even though I don't like game used cards or the concept, I do make some exceptions for some exceptional cards and this is one of them. The front is real shinny in reality one of those examples of cards that look much better in person. Anyway I like to let the cards do the talking in this feature so:

2009 Topps Triple Threads GU Auto Sapphire 130 Jordan Zimmermann RC Nationals #d 04/10
All white spells out "Debut Win" on sticker auto blue sharpie.
(Front and Back)
It is a very sweet card but there are two big things about it that I wish it wasn't. I wish it wasn't a darn ALL WHITE game-used (or event-used it doesn't specify so it might not even be from a Nationals uniform) and even though the design makes it look like it is a "on card" auto it is actually one of those very sneaky on-sticker autos. The silvery foil sticker of course is carefully placed on the "inner" card before the top frame is glued on. I prefer the on card autographs of course. The consolation is that it is a serial numbered card up to just 10 and one of the early numbers.
