My 1,100th Alomar Card

This card was weirdly hard to find.  Despite being just a normal insert card, I have never even seen this card, or even a scan of this card before receiving it in the mail today.  I happened to check Sportlots for the first time in a long time for something other than Tek cards and there it was.  I jumped on it, especially because it was #14 on my Top 15 Most Wanted List.
2005 UD ALL STAR CLASSICS MVP.  This card celebrates Alomar winning the 1997 All Star Game MVP, one of his biggest career accomplishments.  I have been annoyed at the number of recent Topps issues that celebrate All Star Game MVPs that always miss Alomar.  This was one hell of a trophy.
