Though I am sort of drowning in unfiled cards at the moment, getting a box full of Stuff You Didn't Specifically Pick Out is always interesting. Inevitably, that will result in some duplicates.
|1993 Fleer Ultra #352 Darren Holmes|
|2010 Bowman Gold #204 Eric Young, Jr|
But anyway. I asked for Cubs, and Cubs I did receive.
|2014 Bowman #16 Starlin Castro|
|1997 Flair Showcase Row 2 Showpiece #84 Mel Rojas|
And now my brain hurts.
Incidentally, 1997 Flair Showcase was the set that introduced one-of-one parallels to the hobby, forever giving "supercollectors" a giant headache.
Back to a bit of normalcy, Ernie Banks makes an appearance on this recent mini insert that pays homage to 1989 Topps with a sort-of borderless interpretation.
|2014 Topps '89 Topps Die Cut Minis #TM35 Ernie Banks|
And last, now-Dodger Darwin Barney with a celebratory action shot on what has to be my favorite parallel set of all time.
|2013 Topps Emerald #299 Darwin Barney|
I expect there will be more posts like this to come, as I am finally embracing some real interaction with this blog community. I have a stack of cards picked out for Julie at A Cracked Bat, as well as a few shipments on the way from her and others. After all, these things are called "trading cards", and there are some wonderful people in the blogosphere that help them live up to their name.
