Huge PC Card.. Ryan Howard!

I recently picked up one of the bigger cards for the Ryan Howard PC in a while. Yes Bat Knobs are awesome but this card was a chase card for several years. I had missed out on one at auction and thankfully was able to negotiate with the seller on this one to get it to a price I was happy with. This card just does not pop up often so happy to have it finally in my Ryan Howard collection.

2003 Bowman Draft Gold out of 50!

Ignore the dust on my scanner the card is in really good shape. Don't know what it would grade but don't care because its not leaving my collection.

Side note.. not baseball card related.. My wife insists that in order to make pasta you have to wait for the water to boil then put the pasta in. I'm saying it doesn't matter, just throw the pasta in as soon as you put the stove on. What say you?!

Thanks for reading and settling our pasta debate!


  1. That is one sweet looking card! Oh, and your wife is right, the water needs to be brought to a boil before adding the pasta noodles.

  2. Love gold refractors! She is right, water first, then pasta. My mom's family is from Italy, my grandma was 100% Italian. So we're kind of experts 😁

  3. Boil the water first. With a tea spoon of salt too. We don't live in the caveman days anymore where putting pasta in before boiling was tolerated.

  4. The water needs to be boiling. Probably won't make too much of a difference for the really thin noodles, but it could undercook thicker ones.

    Congrats on the pc addition. I just missed out on a /50 Cutch rookie that I'm still pissed about.

  5. Congrats on the pick up. I recently discovered that the AAA Gwinnett Braves included Ryan in their 2017 team set. Even though he never did much of anything w/ the Braves, I still would like to have the card as a Braves collector. Would you consider adding that card to your PC?
