4th Featured Yankee Card of the Week!

I'm choosing this card because I want to acknowledge the importance of Jorge Posada to the Yankees in the 2009 season.  Not only does Posada yield a strong bat, but he also manages the Yankees' pitching staff.  Yankees open up their season today against the Baltimore Orioles.  I'm sure Posada will be catching for CC Sabathia in this long-awaited game.

This card is a 2001 Fleer Platinum National Patch Time.  I'm not entirely sure how I got the card, but I have a hunch I hand-picked it from a collectible store.  It's not a very valuable card either - only six bucks on the internet from what I found.  I value it much more though.  

It has a piece of his actual jersey on the card!  Some of you older collectors may not appreciate it as much, but that's how baseball card collecting has evolved.  I have another Posada card with a piece of his bat on the card.  I've also heard of shoes, bases and baseballs on cards.  It's pretty cool if you ask me.
