Jim Palmer 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter – Mini Base

Jim Palmer 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter – Mini Base

When I went to the September baseball card show, one of my main goals was to go after singles of the guys that I collect that are in the new 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter set.

I purposely did not buy any cards from this release prior to the show as I wanted to be able to enjoy buying them in person.  Thankfully, I walked away with six base cards from the set – all of guys I am focusing on collecting.

Since the show, I have been busy shopping for the base and parallel cards from the set so I can bolster my collections even further.

I have made a few purchases and the cards are starting to roll in.  The first one that made it to my house was Jim Palmer’s mini card, the base version.

Check it out:

Featuring the same image as the larger, base card, I have to say that I am really liking the Orange background behind Palmer.  Not only does it allow for him to stand out a bit more than a plain White background would allow, but it is also a few shades lighter than the Orange from his Orioles uniform which allows for the Orange parts from his jersey and cap to really pop!

A great addition to my Jim Palmer collection!!
