|2007 Topps Hit Parade #HP24 Steve Finley|
Kelly Johnson has played for all the AL East teams, but I'm not aware of any others. Let me know in the comments if any other players have achieved this journeyman feat.
I told Tony that I liked shiny cards and those with serial numbers, and he filled this trade package to that order.
Regardless, I received both full-sized and mini gold cards. The mini cards are much more scarce, numbered to only 63 for the Gold parallels. Even the mini base cards only have a few thousand copies, though they aren't serial numbered.
There was plenty of shiny goodness to go along with the gold parallels, including this retro card of Troy Tulowitzki.

Here's a set that does the facsimile signature a bit better: 1993 Studio.
|1993 Studio #212 Vinny Castilla|
|2014 Topps Museum Collection Green #11 Wilin Rosario /199|
Rosario appears here on a /199 Green parallel in full catcher's gear. Since the Rockies' acquisition of Nick Hundley from Baltimore, Rosario has been spending a bit of time at first base, so cards like this of Baby Bull going forward might be few and far between.
And if you thought that one was thick, you'll just have to trust me that this relic card is even thicker.
|2002 Leaf Certified Mirror Blue #36 Jason Jennings (MEM) /75|
A solid purple swatch is even rarer than one with a pinstripe, and this happens to have a serial number on the back, which matches the overall blue theme of this card.
That's as thick as cards got in this trade package, but thanks to Tony for a trade package chock-full of cards right up my alley!
