1990 Donruss "Learning Series" #26

Part of a special 55-card set distributed to teachers/schools in 1990, the "Learning Series" cards featured the original design and color of the base along with photos that differed from the players base card. As far as I can tell, Cecil was the only player featured who did not have a regular card in the base set...

This card can be found every so often on Ebay from $1-$5.

Wow.

There's really not much to say. By now everyone has seen Sportcenter or logged on to a computer (It's the lead story on most internet news pages such as MSN.com). I'll always remember that time me and my dad saw Armando Galarraga pitch a perfect game, even if the record books don't reflect as much. Great game AG.
