This Is Not The Card Of The Year

This is not the Card of the Year.

First of all, this card doesn't really exist. It is a graphic designers dream of a card. Those signature won't be that good and there will certainly be a big old ding on one of the corners.

Secondly, and most importantly, a 1 of 1 cannot and should not ever be the Card of the Year. The common collector needs to have the ability to own whatever will be deemed the Card of the Year. Hell, this card [if they actually make it] might not even get pulled in 2009. It might not ever get pulled EVER.

Well said.

I agree. That would be the find of a lifetime, but no way should a 1 of 1 be considered as the "card of the year."

Agreed! I guess it's a nice card, but the card of the year shouldn't be something where my first thought is "let's eBay this before the next set's 1 of 1 becomes the flavor of the week..."
