Valentine’s Day Brings Baseball Cards!!!
Some people get flowers.
Some get candy.
Others get fancy jewelry.
And some receive anything and everything in between…
I get baseball cards. And I would have to say that I am more than happy with getting that versus any of the possible above mentioned gifts.
For Valentine’s Day, my wife hooked me up with 5 rack packs of 2013 Topps.
I didn’t have enough time to scan all of the cards, but I figured that a nice, impromptu ‘Top Ten List’ was certainly in order.
But, before dropping my favorite ten cards from the packs on you, I wanted to take a second to commend Topps on some fantastic photography choices used within the 2013 set.
Here are a few examples:
And now, on to the ‘Top Ten Cards Pulled From My Valentine’s Day Baseball Card Bonanza’!!!
10 – Josh Johnson, base and final Marlins card
9 – Bob Feller, Chasing History
8 – Nelson Cruz, Cut To The Chase
7 – Ken Griffey, Jr., Chasing History
6 – Hank Aaron, Chasing History
5 – Rickey Henderson, Chasing History
4 – Roberto Clemente, Chasing History
3 – Matt Kemp, shiny Green parallel
2 – Giancarlo Stanton, 1972 mini
1 – Mike Trout, Wal-Mart Blue parallel
Not a bad haul. Can you guess what my favorite subset is from the 2013 Series One release?? LOL
A huge ‘Thank You’ goes out to my wife and kids for the great goodies.
And yes, they got me a little chocolate treat as well – in the shape of a hollow baseball mitt!!
Love you guys!!!
