As promised, I spent Super Bowl Sunday shopping. In addition to groceries, new shoes, and spiffy additions to my wardrobe, I picked up a blaster of 2014 Topps Series I and a repack (which I'll get to another time).
I'm not crazy about '14 Topps, or modern cards in general, really, but figured I should at least check 'em out in person, right?
I'm sure other bloggers have already written much more interesting things about the 2014 base cards, so I'll just get right into the parallels and inserts. Sorry, it's been a big day for me. I'm exhausted (we also looked at a couple prospective places to move.. one of which was a little house that would be perfect for us.. and so now we're kinda stressing out, hoping we get it, but it looks like we have some stiff competition.) Anyways, I'm taking the lazy route and posting multi-card photos instead of scanning or taking separate pics.. sorry.
These above are the "keepers" for me. Nice cards.
Ok, now everything below is trade bait, so if you see something you want, let me know and let's swing a deal. Here's my wantlist. Got any '73s I need or players I collect? Let me know! Thanks!
The 2 red guys up there are the shiny red type (Middlebrooks, Richard). The below red guys are the Target parallels.
Sorry the names are so hard to read. Just ask if you need clarification on any of these guys.
And yes, the Target card coupons are trade bait, too.. I rarely shop for cards at Target, so one of you guys could probably get better use out of them than me.
Of course I've got a stack of base cards too, so feel free to let me know if there's any you're looking for.
Have a great week, everybody.
