My 'under the radar' blog featuring my baseball card collecting endeavors and hopefully some of my autographs collected in-person / through-the-mail.

1996 UD Blue Chip Prospects Hideo Nomo
Nomo had a substantial MLB career after coming over from Japan more than 20 years ago - he was a phenom, threw a no-hitter at Coors Field, but also went through a period where he bounced around after his first run with the Los Angeles Dodgers ended.
Though Nomo is not anywhere close to being on my list of favorite players, there is some recognition and affection for his MLB accomplishments - the blue tinted background and die-cut shape caught my eye and I picked this insert up for a dollar.
