In order to avoid a complete lack of baseball today, I thought it would be good to do a follow-up post to look at what I bought from Adam's table at last month's card show.
|2007 Topps Opening Day Gold #167 Ubaldo Jimenez /2007|
But it's not all just base singles and old wax. That Jimenez parallel at the top of this post was from his special Rockies box, and set me back a dollar or two. But even the ten cent boxes contained some real gems.
|2013 Finest Green Refractors #60 Yu Darvish /199|
|2011 Topps Diamond Stars #DS13 Jason Heyward|
|2014 Topps Museum Collection #80 Hank Aaron|
|2013 Topps Chasing the Dream #CD17 Addison Reed|
And finally, a non-baseball baseball card, of course from that wacky crew at Allen & Ginter.
|2012 Topps Allen and Ginter World's Tallest Buildings #WTB5 1 World Trade Center|
My one criticism of this insert set is that only four of the ten cards show buildings outside of New York. Of course, dissertations have been written about how New York is synonymous with skyscrapers, but there are plenty of other interesting buildings around the world that could have been chosen, like The Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong, the John Hancock Center in Chicago, or the under-construction Shanghai Tower, also featured in an episode of "Super Skyscrapers."
I'll be missing this month's card show on Saturday since I'm helping my sister and her husband move into their new house (congratulations!), but Christian promises to have a box just for me once August rolls around.
