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”:
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
