A Beach Vacation and a Big Bull

Tomorrow I'm leaving for the beaches of the Outer Banks in North Carolina for my younger brothers wedding.  This will be a nice getaway as my mother in law is taking my daughter so my wife and I can get a mini vacation.  With my surgery we were unable to take a trip this year so this will be a much needed break!  I'll still find some blogging time and my buddy Micah is going to help out on Sunday and Monday.  Maybe I'll find some cards while I'm gone.

2014 Topps Jumbo Patch Pedro Alvarez /99

I've had my eyes on this card for a while.  My patience paid off as I nabbed this for $10 plus shipping.  I'm not a big fan of the card design, but it is a great patch.  The Big Bull has been struggling this year and has recently moved to first base.  I hope he has one of his power surges left in him this year as he can carry a team when he is hot.  

Let's go Bucs
Let's go Mountaineers.  Beat Alabama!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Hey Matt,

    A great safe trip! Love the relic if of the "Cardinal Killer". I really like the Trajectory inserts

  2. Thanks Brady! I wish Pedro could save a little of that for the rest of the NL.

    The patches out of this years Topps were nice and big.

  3. Great pickup! Love the patch and the price. Enjoy the wedding!
