Nats fan goes Double Rainbow for Harper and Strasburg

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh! Of all the dramatic things I’ve ever seen! Satoken19770127 standing right in an Upper Deck trading card box announcing he is back-flipping!

In this random video on YouTube, a baseball fan from Tokyo, Japan named Ken gushes over an Upper Deck trading card that holds the signatures of both Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg. He apparently got the card in a pack which is a pretty lucky find.

Under the username ‘Satoken19770127,’ Ken shows off the card while describing how excited he is to have it. He starts to get really, really excited at about the 1:30 mark.

Holy crap that is awful.

For other So-Cal folks: His pronunciation of Strasburg's first name brought me back to awful local TV commercials in the 1980's: Stefan! It's Jack STEFAN!

Ugh - back when I collected baseball cards you got, you know, cards. Never once did I get "game used" jersey of my favorite player and you know what? I wouldn't have wanted that, either.

Also, the fake autographs on my Topps/Fleer/Donruss/Bowman 1988 sets were hipper than the crap Ken pulled, too.

When I think of all the baseball cards that my friends and I destroyed by using them to make engine sounds in the spokes of our bicycles...shudder. Some of them had to be the Good Ones, too.

I didn't know you could put that kind of video on Youtube.

Exactly two months from now, Ken will be old enough to be President of the United States.

You mean the facsimile autographs? I don't think any of those sets had them. Hell, Bowman didn't start up again until 1989. Nitpicking aside, I agree.

If you're talking 1950's and/or 1960's, probably. Almost anything after that, not so much.

The 1990s cards were so full of steroids, they broke the bike wheels.

I left so many early nineties baseball cards at home when I moved out that my family keeps pestering me to take....any chance that 20-30 years from now people will forget they were worthless and offer me a fortune for them? and while we're at it...anyone want to offer me a fortune for some fabulously valuable turn of the century* baseball cards?


*specific century to be determined at time of purchase.

My Cal Ripken rookie (Orioles future stars with Bob Bonner and Jeff Schneider) is worth about 10 bucks (listed for a lot more, but that's BS). Boggs, Gwynn and Clemens rookies not quite worth as much.

I was expecting a bit more razzle dazzle in that clip. At least some crying or screaming.

The Canadian hockey jersey is rather centrally located in the shot. Is this guy the increasingly common Japanese baseball-hockey cross-over fan? Or just a memorabilia fan.

No.
