I was in Kankakee, Illinois, early this week visiting family and I had a moment so I stopped in a big box store and almost walked out with a blaster of Archives. I put it back, because really all I want is a Crash Davis card (sans auto) and I would have felt some serious buyer's remorse afterwards. How could Topps not put non-auto cards Kevin Costner or Susan Sarandon in this insert set? So frustrating.
Instead I grabbed the above number for a five-spot and happily strolled out to the parking lot.
You may be thinking it was a silly purchase, but remember I'm a Cubs fan AND Kris Bryant is in this set. His card alone could have possibly set me back the five bucks. And hey, my blogging friends aren't going to complain when they find these in their mailboxes down the road. Right?
If you see something you need to add to your collection just drop me a comment.
This just in: The Mets pitching staff is good.
I've been too lazy to check and see if Topps was lazy in the creation of these cards. Are all the pictures the same from the flagship product? Kris Bryant's is about the same. Although, the "Future Stars" label is missing, an NL stamp is now present, and the photo has been zoomed in a click or two.
Thanks for stopping by and try to stay cool today!
