2010 SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond Nick Evans Black Border

Evans is one of those guys who I had really high hopes for, solely for the fact that in his first game as a Met, he hit three doubles. I guess I can’t really blame him for not panning out as I had hoped. I would imagine that it’s hard to get into a groove when you’ve been bounced up and down from the minors as much as he has. I also seem to recall him having been called up to the Majors and then sitting on the bench for like 3 weeks straight. That can’t be good for your swing. I guess at least this year it seems like the Mets will just keep him down in the minors somewhere so he can at least get in steady work. Unless the injuries start again.

I always find it interesting to see where guys decide to sign these cards. Like on this one, I think it’s pretty obvious that Nick tried to keep the writing on his uniform where the black marker would stand out. Good thinking, Nick. For some reason, all these black border cards I made seem to have printed a little on the dark side.
