There are three reasons this card is my favorite:
1. Takizawa-san's legs are bigger than my waist...look at those things. Plus, his hair is flying up because he is lowering his head to ruin someone's day. This is one of the most menacing cards I have ever seen.
2. I owned exactly one autographed card before this one. It is a Laura Prepon 2015 Panini Americana that I picked up cheap at the Chantilly Card Show. Other than that, this is it (Actually, this card is on its way over from Japan, but this is the auction photo of it). Takizawa-san's signature is a really beauty and when I saw this card, I knew I needed to have it.
3. This card would not have been possible without the help of Raz over at The Raz Card Blog. I shot him a small care package a few weeks ago and he unexpectedly dropped a little extra in my PayPal account to say thanks. A huge gesture and this card represents the great folks I have met over the past year of blogging. Thanks Raz!
Thanks to P-Town Tom as well for running your contest. Cheers everyone!
