Bryce Harper 2014 Donruss – Base

Bryce Harper 2014 Donruss – Base

Way back in May of this year, I showed you the Bryce Harper 2014 Donruss card I picked up from the ‘Power Plus’ insert set.

Well, fast forward more than four months, and I have finally landed the base card from the same set.  Took me a while to do so, huh?

The seller that I normally buy my modern cards from on Sportlots.com never offered up a Harper base card from the 2014 Donruss release, so I skipped it.

But, when I saw that Series 2 was hitting the shelves just a few weeks ago, I was reminded to go back and get the Harper I missed out on in May.

And so, that is precisely what I did.

Have a look:

And now, I will find a Series 2 checklist and see what cards I want to go after…

Andrew McCutchen 2014 Bowman Platinum

Andrew McCutchen 2014 Bowman Platinum

Last week I showed off the first single from the 2014 Bowman Platinum baseball card set.  That card was of Orioles’ 3B, Manny Machado.

Well, it is time for me to unveil another card that I have scored from the set.

And I am kicking it up a notch – to MVP-Talent!!

Here is the card of the reigning NL MVP, #22 – Mr. Andrew McCutchen:

Like the Machado card, this one also features great in-game action and supreme colors.  The shot used feels like it could have been selected for a poster – so crisp and clean!

This set has really impressed me thus far.  And I still have some more to show off to that is just as, if not more, nice.

Get ready for that in the coming days and weeks ahead.

But for now, scroll back up a few steps and check out ‘Cutch’.
