El Otro Mundo

Got a nice little package from Dan at The Other World. A big ol' stack of Reds goodness in return for some Phillies. Let's ride.

A nice parallel of Dat Dude BP. 2011 Bowman Green #'d/450. Goes nicely with a few other colors I have of this one.
2011 Bowman Chrome Prospects Blue Dave Sappelt #'d/250. Sappelt played a little with the Reds, then the Cubs. He's now with the Phillies.

2013 Bowman Platinum Sapphire Joey Votto. Good looking card. And totally not blue. SAPPHIRE.

Here's a barrage of parallels.
2011 Topps Sparkle Paul Janish
2009 Topps 206 Bronze Brandon Phillips
2005 Bowman Gold Tyler Pelland
2010 Bowman Chrome Prospects Green Xfractors Dan Tuttle
2013 Topps Chrome Refractors Jay Bruce

How bout a couple Griffeys? You betchur ass.
2008 SP Authentic Achievements Insert
2008 Allen & Ginter

2000 Bowman Retro/Future Ty Howington. I don't even know what to say about this set.

Nice vintage action. 1960 Topps Cal McLish. His only year with the Reds, fyi.

And piles and piles of more goodness. Wicked awesome cards, Dan. Go Reds.


  1. My favorite Cal McLish will always be the '61 Topps squint card.

    1. i just looked that up. never seen it. yeesh.

  2. If "El Otro Mundo" is a reference to a somewhat rare Joe Jackson b-side, then consider the reference to be appreciated.

    If it had nothing to do with Joe Jackson, then just disregard me as confused but harmless.

    1. i won't pretend i'm hip enough musically for that to be the case. i didnt have it in me to come up with a clever title, so i just went with the title of Dan's blog in Spanish. For no reason.
