This card came out last year, and since Fujikawa pitched a couple games for the Cubs last year, it fit the rule.
What about relics? I follow the same rule for relics. I couldn't find any stand-alone relic cards, but there were several auto/relic cards from last year's Finest. Last year I stayed away from these--too expensive. But with more than a year passing since he pitched in the big leagues, the prices dropped to my level. I got this card for $3.26.
By my count, he is one of 64 Cubs that match my relic rule. Here's the list that I've put together. There are several big names and a bunch of no-names too. Anyone see a player that you think should be on the list?
