Card of the Week: Not This Year

Old time Dodger fans can't forget it, and modern Dodger fans are constantly reminded of it. As the old saying goes, "those who forget history are doomed to repeat it." So, I hope the Dodgers don't rest on their laurels.

Here is this weeks "Card of the Week" from 1991 Bowman Baseball #410. It commemorates the infamous "Shot Heard 'Round The World." Below is the reverse of the card. Click either pic to enlarge.

If I'm not mistaken, please let me know if I'm wrong, this card along with a handful of others in the set was the first time shiny gold foil was inlaid onto a card. It was a huge development in the hobby and lead to dramatic changes in card design over the years. Below is a scan of the gold design of a globe and the words "The Shot" in the middle.

  1. I have a 1991 Bowman card signed by Bobby Thompson and Ralph B. would you happen to know what it might be worth? I can't find any info on it.
