Nick Markakis, 2014 Donruss Jersey Kings #37
Okay, so last night didn't go according to plan. But it was still an incredible, strange, tense game, and it takes four wins to go to the World Series...not one. I figured it was a good omen when I pulled this Nick Markakis jersey relic from a rack pack of 2014 Donruss Series Two on Thursday, but 'Kakes had an uneven first game of the ALCS. He collected two singles, a double, a run scored, and a stolen base, but was slow to get to Alex Gordon's three-run double in the right field corner and also made the final out in the tenth inning with the tying runs on base. So it goes. In a few minutes, Bud Norris will get a shot at evening up the series.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
