I think we all understand the general idea by now, so I won't go into too much detail. Pick a card to carry in your wallet for a year, and take the occasional photo of it in your surroundings. I can't say I gave it a whole lot of thought; I just thumbed through a row in my duplicates box until I found something that I thought was meaningful.
However, there is one set out there that would be completely perfect for this trend.

So what did I end up choosing? I'll give you a few hints. It's a Rockie, of course. There is gold foil. The design matches the first factory set I ever purchased. And it's a player I've met in person.

It's a nice card, and this was my favorite parallel set as a boy. It's not quite to the level of The Junior Junkie, who picked Ken Griffey Jr.'s rookie card from 1989 Upper Deck, one of the only overproduction cards that still holds some decent monetary value.
Come back throughout the course of the year and see what adventures Mr. Girardi encounters.
Update: I was just looking over some previous posts, and it turns out that this one came to me in a trade from The Card Papoy all the way from France!
