Tricked by a Baseball Card
Over the past few years I have been getting pretty good at noticing acetate cards from a scan. When I saw this 1999 Skybox Molten Metal Fusion insert I was pretty sure I had a new card for the acetate collection. I was wrong. The usual indicators were there, cropped photo on the front, and the mirrored logo on the back of the cards is usually a dead giveaway. Once the card arrived in the mail I discovered that it was regular card stock, and the head shot image was made out of holes in the card. While not a new acetate card, it is something different and a nice addition to the Rockies collection.
