there was a significant snowfall here in the twin cities on tuesday last week, and the temperature hadn't risen above 35 degrees or so until wednesday of this week when it hit 45 degrees. it's definitely time to break out the jacket.
over the past three years, panini has been cutting up and distributing pieces of a warmup jacket that supposedly belonged to steve garvey. the latest issue to include the jacket is from 2020 panini immaculate collection - a subset appropriately called "jackets". as a good player collector, i've been trying to acquire these cards in which panini has paired the jacket with sticker autos, and have been pretty successful.
i have the "base" version, numbered to 25
in 2019, panini used the jacket in their national treasures release. the retro materials subset included a big ol' piece of jacket
the jacket shows up in the 2019 panini national treasures game gear insert set as well. this is the triple relic version
anyway, the extended forecast shows temperatures climbing in to the 50's this weekend. i'll still need a jacket.
