Is This the Best Bryce Harper Card? 2012 Bowman Platinum Bat Plate Surfaces

When Topps first announced their plans for 2012 Bowman Platinum Baseball, front and center was one of the best Bryce Harper cards made so far. The one-of-one featured a plate from a bat used by the phenom in the Arizona Fall League. And while a massive bat piece would have been cool on its own, this particular chunk is engraved with "Mondo," giving it some added personality.
