Well... I realize it's like comparing apples to oranges, but baseball cards would definitely be in the discussion.
Sport Card Collectors recently sent me a six card PWE that got me pumped up for my hike...
1999 Topps #110
Another Oakland Athletics buyback for my collection. This one features the 1998 American League Rookie of the Year who was once the A's top prospect. I went all in on Ben Grieve back in the late 90's and eventually learned that prospecting isn't my thing.
That's why I had no idea who this guy was...
2017 Bowman's Best Dean's List #BADL-LA
After looking him up online, I discovered that Armenteros is 18 year old outfielder from Cuba who probably won't be called up for at least a few more seasons.
The rest of the PWE was filled with veterans including two guys on the 2017 Oakland Athletics roster:
2017 Topps Gold #542
2017 Bowman's Best Refractor #53
Plouffe was traded last summer to Tampa Bay and is currently a free agent, while Davis just recently signed a one year deal to stay in town.
The last two cards are the perfect prelude to my Tuesday post:
2017 Stadium Club Gold #227
2017 Stadium Club Power Zone #PZ-JC
I don't want to spoil the surprise... but here's a hint. Tuesday's post has nothing to do with Stadium Club baseball cards.
Thanks Sport Card Collectors for these cards. You went 6 for 6... since I didn't have any of these before receiving your PWE. Looks like I gotta go dig up some more Rodney Hampton cards to send you way.
In the meantime... I've gotta get ready for my hike. Happy Sunday and sayonara!
