Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Mini – Base

Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Mini – Base

While the scan does not show it, this is the Jose Fernandez base card from the 2014 Topps Mini card set.

Maybe next time when I scan cards that I score from this set, I will take the extra step and show it off next to the standard-sized base card so you can see just how ‘mini’ the card is.

Maybe next time..

For now, enjoy this card of the 2013 NL ROY!

Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Archives – 1987 Topps ‘Future Stars’ Design

Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Archives – 1987 Topps ‘Future Stars’ Design

Here is another sweet card that I scored from the 2014 Topps Archives set that features Jose Fernandez.

The card is mini in size, and as you can see, it borrows the 1987 Topps card design for inspiration.

Have a look:

I have long been a fan of the 1987 Topps ‘Future Stars’ subset and I am really happy to see Jose get a card of his own from it.

As a kid, my favorite ‘Future Stars’ card was the one of Bo Jackson from the 1987 Topps set.  This one above of Jose Fernandez may very well be my favorite modern one.

A great addition to my Jose Fernandez player collection!

Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter – Mini Base

Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter – Mini Base

I’m not going to spend too much time on this one…

This is the Base mini card of Jose Fernandez from the 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter set.

I have not picked up too many parallels of my PC guys from the 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter set as of yet as most of what I am seeking is too costly for my liking.

Maybe in time I will add a few more cards to my collection of Jose Fernandez from this 2014 A&G set, but if not I am OK where I have left off…

Jose Fernandez 2014 Panini Prizm ‘Intuition’

Jose Fernandez 2014 Panini Prizm ‘Intuition’

Here is a neat one that I recently scooped up of the 2013 NL ROY:

This card comes from the 2014 Panini Prizm set and specifically from the ‘Intuition’ subset.

Panini packed a lot into one card front, but I think it all works really well together.  I especially like how the ‘I’ and ‘N’ in intuition wrap the card upwards and pull it all together.

I cannot wait to get another status update from the Marlins on Jose’s rehab.  My fingers are crossed that he can make 12-14 appearances for the team after the All-Star break in 2015.  And then in 2016, LOOK OUT!!!

Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Archives – 1987 Topps Glossy All-Star

Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Archives – 1987 Topps Glossy All-Star

I LOVE IT!!!

These cards from the 2014 Topps Archives set take me right back to when I was buying and ripping rack packs of Topps baseball cards as a kid in South Florida during the mid-1980’s.

The card style is an exact match to the ‘bonus’ card that each rack pack offered and I am very excited to see that Topps gave one of these cards this year to Jose Fernandez.

As you can see right above the ‘All-Star’ banner, it says 2013.  That was the first All-Star Game selection for Jose Fernandez and Topps has done a nice job of commemorating each of these players’ first ASG selection with this set by tagging their first time right on the top of the card.

A great addition to my Jose Fernandez collection!  Thank you, Topps!

Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Series 2 – 2013 NL ROY – Red Foil Parallel

Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Series 2 – 2013 NL ROY – Red Foil Parallel

Yes, I am still hauling in parallel cards of Jose Fernandez that were issued earlier this year.  And yes, I still need more.

This one here is the Red Foil card from Series 2 of the 2014 set.

Time to really hunker down and try to knock these rainbows out.  Before I know it, 2015 cards will be here…

Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter – Mini A&G Back

Jose Fernandez 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter – Mini A&G Back

I’ve got quite a way to go with my Jose Fernandez collection strictly based on the number of times he has appeared in 2014 products.

I am up for the challenge, and I prefer to take my ‘slow and easy’ approach so I do not spend more than I need to as I hunt down cards that are tougher to come by than base issues.

I have yet to score Jose’s base mini card from this year’s Allen & Ginter release, but I did pick up his ‘A&G’ card from the set.

Here is the front of the card:

And here is the back:

And now, I will try to track down the base mini.  It should be easier to find, affordably, than this one..

Wish me luck!
