At the end of 2014 I sent out close to 1.5 lbs of cards to Pack War. I’d been desperate to move some of that stuff for ages, and fortunately it seemed to have found its mark quite well. So now, I present the return.
Valor looks great. I dunno about Marshall & courage going together, but that parallel is #’ed /399. I like the way the Triple Threads kind of pop out of an actual background.
For real though, even with the protector, you can see your own reflection in the silver parts of that wonderful Terrell Davis insert. Unless you’re a vampire, in which case… *runs away*
*cautiously returns* Is… Is the vampire dude gone? Okay… *deep breath* Where was I? Oh yeah.
I’m happy to have some of the year’s best rookies in Watkins, Bortles, & Beckham Jr. I don’t chase RCs from any other sport near as hard as baseball, but I do like getting them when I can. 😉
Then we have these StarQuest. But they are no ordinary StarQuest, oh no! For when you flip them over, you reveal…
…They are also RookQuest! Two of the finest to ever lace ’em up at that. Such connections they have. Can you imagine if they had put Ryan Leaf and Yatil Green on the back of Elway & Rice? That would’ve been embarrassing. And now Peyton and his giant forehead of doom is playing for ol’ horseface. Even better. I’m not high I swear. MOVING ON.
Here’s the lone basketball card in the package, and the obligatory “doesn’t scan well/looks way better in person” card, a Pinnacle Jamfest Artist Proof of Dominique Wilkins.
Like I said, I’m always down for RCs of baseball stars, even when I have more than one, ala Mr. Posey here. I have three of him now: Flagship Topps, Bowman Platinum, and this here A&G. Or, and speaking of being high, in Ricky Williams’ case, baseball RCs of football stars. Alleged egotistical weirdo Alex Rodriguez and 2005 World Series MVP Jermaine Dye round out the rookie card scan.
Coming down the home stretch, starting with a pair of low numbered (but not really) black parallels of Ichiro Suzuki from the infamous disaster that was Topps Moments & Milestones. I like to think of it as the Showgirls of card sets, because I imagine its existence had to have ruined a few careers. Next up a pair each of north and south side’s most recently retired Hall of Famers, including a nifty Jiffy Pop disk that’s just sliiiightly too big for its own good.
And that’s all for this trade. Thanks, Shawn! Hope we can do it again sometime. And *points at screen and winks cheekily* thank YOU for stopping by.
It was fun. Oh my…
