I love the fact that these cards have the MLB authentication sticker on them and you can tell which game the jersey was from. I wish they would do this with all of their relic cards. I know it won't happen, but a guy can dream.
This was my first Strata Paul Goldschmidt card and so after scanning the card I had to file it away and create a divider titled "Strata". It got me thinking, what does Strata mean?
So I looked it up.
So strata is the plural of stratum. So I looked up stratum.
Okay. So "a layer of material....often one of a number of parallel layers one upon another". That makes sense based on how these cards are constructed.
