Let Our Powers Combine!

What do these three cards have in common?

No, they didn't summon Captain Planet.

Instead, along with a quick image search, they combined to create the super duper short print missing from the 2014 Opening Day Mascots set.

The border and logos come from the Darwin Barney card. The Orioles Bird contributed the position (mascot) designation. And Nick Franklin is an anagram for "Clark Knifinn" but I just used the letters to spell Clark.

The photo was borrowed from Clark's Twitter feed (@ClarktheCub) when he posed with Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks at the Cubs Convention back in January.

Love him or hate him, Clark will be around for at least this year and that means probable inclusion in the 2015 set. In the meantime, the Cubs are now not shut out of the Opening Day insert sets.

  1. Nice job! As a non-Cubs fan, I'm somewhat bemused at the anti-Clark camp, because I've seen far worse mascots... but I can see how going from no mascot to any mascot would be anathema to some.

    ...So when do we get to see the custom for Clark Knifinn?
