|Sweetness + a cameo by the most overrated running back of all-time..|
|Lots of fancypants base and an insert..|
|Acetate '90s promo front...|
|Pennant die-cuts are always awesome though..|
|A lil bit of everything..|
|At last, back to the baseball!|
Rizzo, as the on-field leader of the most dynamic team in baseball, doesn't so much make me think as he does dream, of a day when I can stop saying "Wait 'til next year" and instead say "This is our year." He makes me dream of World Series trophies and the way he carries himself reminds me of some of the greats to ever play this wonderful, heartbreaking game.
|Young Nomah bling..|
|Young Vladdy bling..|
On the non-Cub, full player collection front, we have a Topps Tek DramaTEK Performers insert and shiny base card each for should-be Hall of Famer Nomar Garciaparra and 1000% lock Hall of Famer Vladimir Guerrero.
|Base versions of the above minis..|
There is just something so serene about these two cards when they're sitting next to each other like this.
|More past Cubs greats..|
The Legendary Cuts are just spectacular looking. And a Kerry Wood RC! Always nice to check another key rookie off my list. :)
|Spring Fever Cubbies..|
Closing out the Cubs portion of the post with a couple shiny Spring Fever cards from 2013. Down the stretch we come with the rest of the hits from the package!
|1972 Topps Gale Sayers..|
I actually already have this card, but I gotta say, there's a certain sense of wonder and/or giddy joy in having duplicates of vintage Hall of Famers.
|2015 Topps Chrome Rookie Relics Purple Refractor #'ed 66/75|
This right here is the third card that prompted the original trade talks, and it looks much nicer in person. Don't they all though?
|2001 Upper Deck Legends of New York Bat Card..|
|2013 Topps UFC Finest Fighter Autographs..|
|A little art by the good Corky hisself!|
|Fancy back too!|
Thanks for stopping by!
Until our next...
