Don't forget to enter my contest and select who you think will hit the first double in the World Series.
As a reminder all month long I will be showing off pink baseball cards to raise awareness for Breast Cancer. In addition to showing off those cards I will highlight some of my favorite female celebrities.
1 in 8 women will be detected with breast cancer in their lifetime. To put it into perspective, it is possible that 4 of the lovely ladies I show this month could be detected.
Make a donation to breast cancer awareness.

Last year I posted a 2018 Donruss Mother's Day Pink Ribbon parallel as a major want of mine. I had missed out on the first two I saw hit the open market around release day and feared that I wouldn't see another one pop up for some time.
I was right.
In the calendar year following the first two weeks of 2018 Donruss, ZERO popped up for sale.
Fast forward the first 6 months of 2019 and the trend of ZERO appeared on various forums, eBay, COMC, and sportlots.
Then the hot month of June came.
With the below card finally popping up for sale
