That's why if you ever check out my collection on my website... you'll see I collect a little bit of everything. Vintage? Yup. Autographs? I've got them too. Sets? You betcha. I've got team PC's, player PC's, non-sport PC's, hometown PC's. Heck... I even collect damaged cards.
Honestly... sometimes it's very challenging for me to decide which collection I want to spend my hard earned money on. But last night, when P-town Tom asked us to write a post about our favorite 2016 card, it was one of the easier decisions I've had to make.
2016 Topps Strata Signature Patch cards are one of the coolest sets I've seen in recent years. They're essentially Upper Deck Shadow Box knockoffs, which combine an on-card autograph and a swatch of game worn jersey encapsulated within multiple layers of acetate. The end result gives off a three dimensional look that is truly gorgeous.
Back n August, I rolled the dice and purchased a redemption card off of eBay for the Rickey Henderson card. I immediately turned around and redeemed it. About a month later, I received this in the mail:
Okay... it's your turn.
What's your favorite 2016 card?
If you're willing to write up a short post explaining your answer, you can enter a contest over on P-town Tom's blog. Just leave a link in his comment section.
I look forward to reading everyone's responses.
Happy Monday and sayonara!
