One Card Post - Red Sox Rizzo
Where: Jeff S
How Much?: Free (and by surprise!)
Why?: Because Jeff S is just awesome. I had no idea this card was even coming in the most recent trade package he sent my way. Remember when Anthony Rizzo was a top prospect in Boston's farm system? No? Don't blame you. He never played a single game for the Red Sox, and made his MLB debut in 2011 after being dealt to San Diego for Adrian Gonzalez the previous off-season.
In hindsight, that deal doesn't look so good from a Red Sox perspective given how quickly Gonzalez was traded, and what Anthony Rizzo has gone on to become. Great card though, and a significant new addition to my Red Sox collection, thanks Jeff!
