The following card I got in the mail this week and one that I saved specifically to show off today, otherwise known as #BatmanDay, combines many of these things and more.
Before I show the card, let's do a small breakdown of why it's a great card to me.
First off, I have watched every episode of The Big Bang Theory and pretty much own every season. I already have the upcoming season DVR'd to go. The humor of the show and the nerd in me loves it. Also doesn't hurt that Kaley Cuoco is on the show either (if my wife reads this I apologize in advance).
Secondly, I am a huge Batman fan. Loved the original series on TV and have seen every movie except Batman vs Superman (hopefully soon even though I still question Ben Affleck as Batman).
Third, as I stated above, I am a fan and collect non-sports cards and especially unique ones. Cryptozoic has put out some pretty sweet cards with props from the shows which makes those key ones to chase.
When you combine all of those things together, I am sure there are many other reasons too, you have a mail day of epic proportions.
This is an authentic prop puzzle piece of Jigsaw puzzle Kaley, I mean Penny attempted to put together on the show. And if you look closer at the piece, it's what we would call in the sport card world a "Batman swatch". So looking at the overall picture (not just Kaley), this is a big winner to me.
I haven't even gotten to the best part yet, I WON this card off from Twitter! So I strongly suggest you go follow @ (who is the developer of licensed collectibles for Cryptozoic of multiple brands)so you can attempt to win cards like this and others. He gives so many away a week and some pretty epic pieces like the one above. Not to mention, previews a ton of upcoming products so you can be ready to buy.
Thoughts on the card? What's your #BatmanDay card? Got a favorite Big Bang Theory card?
