Oh hey, so, I apparently scheduled this post incorrectly prior to going out of town. I know you all have been staying up all night in an insomniatic haze, staring blankly at your computer screens waiting for the second part to my previous Sportlots post, so my apologies are as voluminous as Devin Mesoraco's stat sheet.
Let's wrap this up.
1986 Topps Rose. Hey, remember when Topps was allowed to put Petey's face on a card? They even put out a 150 card set in honor of his record-breaking hit. And even though we have a Phillies uni, an Expos uni, and a SOFTBALL uni, I'm still choosing to count all of these as Reds cards.
And here's six more. That sliding painting is pretty great. And the bottom middle card, I think, may involve some Nachos Enhancing Drugs, IF YA KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
Also finished off the 2003 UD 40-Man set. The New Releases rookie subset is pretty slick, I say. Overall, considering this was a 'cheap' set, it's pretty high quality. Come back, Upper Deck. I can't quit you.
Then the TSC subset features silver and blue for the base, but silver and gold for the silver parallel. Um, yeah.
And we'll close with a surprisingly tough group to find: 1992 Fleer Update. This was the first time I'd seen anything from this set since I started back up. I have no idea why these are so hard to find, but I no longer have to care. Excellent. Warning: Be wary of Bippage.
