Mailbox Joys: A Buehrle SP

2010 Topps Heritage #497 - Mark Buehrle AS

My first card of 2010 Heritage and I haven't seen a single pack yet. I found this beauty for 99 cents. I'm very happy with this short print steal of a find!

What better way to celebrate the arrival of this card of the White Sox 2010 Opening Day starter than to just copy the copy on the back of the card.

"Buehrle has been regarded as a premier starter for many years, but though he already had a no-hitter on his resume, it was his perfect game of last July 23 that finally earned him national notoriety. There was far more to his season, however. The fast-working left-hander was named to the MLB All-Star Game for the fourth time and reached double-digit wins for the MLB-high ninth consecutive season. No AL pitcher has induced more DP grounders over the past two seasons than Mark's 62."

I have nothing further to add to that!
