Five days of softball tryouts in the heat and humidity have really sapped my energy this week. So, here's another trade wrap-up, with minimal commentary. This one comes from Daniel, the author of It's Like Having My Own Card Shop, who lives in the great state of Arizona. I could use some of that dry heat right about now. There wasn't any to be found in the trade package though.
Enjoy the pictures!
I miss Luis Valbuena, but that Kris Bryant character was a decent upgrade.
I don't love me some Michael Barrett, but this is when I realized nearly the entire package was chocked full of parallels and serial numbered cards.
"Splendid Splinters" is a very appropriate title for this card, which is super thick and has a wood finish on the front.
More serial numbered cards!
Sammy, numbered out of 46? Um, okay. That's a random number.
Gracey! I took two pictures, one with the flash and one without so you could see the beauty of this card.
(For the record, Barry Bonds and Barry Larkin were also drafted in the first round. Why would Topps leave them off?)
Ramy! He actually looks older in the Pittsburgh picture, but this card is dated 2006.
We'll finish this one with a nice Addy mini from last year's Allen and Ginter set.
Thanks for the return package, Daniel!
