    Question Anybody have a game used card with heavy wear or maybe even blood?

    Game used cards are suppose to be game worn and used but most of the time they look brand new and were hardly used that much by the player. So has anybody ever pulled one that showed a lot of wear and tear that you knew it was used? Maybe even a little bloody?

    So have you ever pulled one or seen a well used game used card before?

    I wonder if Topps just filled the card up with dirt from the ground outside of headquarters or if they actually went through the trouble of getting dirt from every stadium?

    I don't own any but I've noticed on eBay a lot of Starlin Castro GU cards are pretty dirty, especially from last year's Museum Collection:

    I don't know. It doesn't list any specific stadium or anything. If it's real dirt, maybe they just got a ton of dirt from one stadium to use for all the cards in the set?
