Baseball Card Show Purchase #1 – Rickey Henderson 2013 Topps ‘Spring Fever’ Redemption Card
While sifting through a quarter box of cards from 2013, I fell upon a few of the Topps ‘Spring Fever’ cards. These cards were issued during the early part of the baseball card collecting season. Randomly inserted into Series 1 hobby boxes, Topps put ‘Spring Fever’ redemption cards into their hobby packs allowing for the customer to come back to the card shop and redeem for these limited sets.
The gimmick works and the customers come back to the hobby shop – certainly not a bad way to keep the doors of hobby shops opening, so I applaud Topps for their efforts.
Among the cards that I saw in the lot was this card of Rickey Henderson.
Have a look:
She is a beauty! And the way that Topps worked the coloring of the card to match the Yellow & Green coloring of his Oakland A’s uniform is perfect!
I should have bought them all!! Not sure what I was thinking by skipping right past them… At least I got this one.
