Almost Acetate Appreciation: 2000 Stadium Club 3x3 Luminious
This is the second time I have been tricked into thinking a card was acetate then it wasn't. Usually when the card back has a mirrored image of the front, it's a good sign. This card is different in that its a regular chrome card, but the sideways lines in the card are actually die-cut slits. A very weird idea on an already weird card, part of the 3x3 Luminous insert set that has a left, right and center (this card being a right) that interlock into each other. An interesting idea, but one that doesn't do much for me, as I really get annoyed by trying to store cards that are not the regular rectangle shape.
