a family blog about baseball cards
Wouldn't most others maybe, but Neshek isn't exactly a huge star, so I voted rip it good.
I ripped both of mine from the 2008 Allen and Ginter Case break I did and I have no regrets.
Rip, Rip, Rip!
Contact Pat Neshek--- he collects his own cards, and may reward you handsomely. Contact him. Don't rip it. Seriously.http://www.eteamz.com/patneshek/index.cfmYou can also reach him through the Mail at the Twins Spring training site, he answers all TTM and you won't be disappointed.
If Tubby is right, with this card being #1 I say try and contact him. Who knows what you might get but just trading with an actual MLB player would be cooler than any rip card IMHO.
Did you win it?! Pat will be crushed!! If you have it in your possession, I highly suggest, as Tubby has already stated, contacting him and trading his rip card for something. You won't be sorry.
I pulled me a rip card too, and I have decided your poll will guide the fate of mine as well...
I would be really upset if one of these ever ended up on my hands. I'd probably leave the decision in someone else's hands and try to sell it or something.That being said, I agree with the others that say that you should try and contact the dude himself.
Patricia this is what I do.Step #1Hold a flashlight up to it in a dark roomStep #2If you see a triangle on the back of the card its a 1/1RIP IT!Step #3No triangle.TRADE IT!The Mojo Hand
sigh... rip away!
I voted to rip it open (carefully) but that's before I read the other comments. It would be pretty cool to actually trade the card to the guy pictured on the card, and then let the rip decision be his . . .
No, don't listen to the poll. The value only comes in the rip card un-opened. Unless you don't care that you have an expensive card in your hands, do not rip it!
I present a third option - contact Pat through his blog, tell him you pulled one of his rip cards, and try to work out a trade with him. I know he traded four Twins/Cubs tickets last year for his A&G Wood card, so he may be willing to listen.If absolutely nothing else, you get the thrill of corresponding with a pro baseball player (and he will get back to you - he has the time, and is really personable).
Oops, should have read the other posts. That'll teach me to jump the gun.
ohhh now i know why there called rip cards pretty interesting idea
