Random Cool Card I Own #1

I decided to restart the Random Cool Cards I Own posts, changing the Billy Williams, Ryne Sandberg, and one or two future ones I already wrote to “The Lonestarr Personal Collection”.  So here is my new first one filed under “Random Cool Card I Own”:

Which parallel is this exactly?

2008 UD Masterpieces Longoria Back

It's really hard to see the numbering across his chest...

2008 Upper Deck Masterpieces (Silver?) Framed Parallel Evan Longoria #ed 24/25.  I have never actually seen any of the framed parallels in person before.  They add a touch of class to an already great design.  The frame reminds me a lot of the 2002 Roberto Clemente Diamond King Gold Parallel I have, though the frame isn’t as thick.  The frames are an excellent way to make a parallel, rather than just a colored border, imo.

I’m not sure what the odds for something like this coming out of retail are, but they must be pretty long.  I didn’t get any parallels out of the two blasters I bought late last/early this year (just a regular SP in each).  I’m not too bad at getting hits & such from retail packs I guess.  I should totally make a gallery of my retail hits sometime, since I still have most of them I think.

I have no idea what I want to do with this card, if I want trade it, or maybe see what I could get for it on eBay, or maybe slide it into the PC.  I don’t collect him, but it can’t hurt to have a fantastic card of great player in there, right?  I’m not letting it go easily if I do go the trade route though.  But make an offer if you like it; I will at least consider it.

Eva, Evan.  Oprah, Uma.  Ooh, Uma… hawt. :3
