I'm a Sucker

I'm a bonafide sucker for team cards. From vintage to modern day I love cards that feature multiple Buccos. For the last couple of years the team card featuring the Buccos has been a big time chase card for me.


I've been lucky in the past few months to find the above printing plate and Topps Mini /10 parallel. While I really enjoy these cards I haven't hid the fact that I'm a huge fan of the silver frame and acetate parallels.  Well, patience paid off!

2015 Topps Series 1 Acetate Parallel /10

Finally!!!! It had been quite a long time since the acetate has shown up on eBay.  For about $18 shipped I finally secured a card that has avoided me for well over a year. The only thing that would make this card better is if Starling Marte was on it, but I still love it.  

Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

    1. The team cards are sometimes tricky to find on eBay depending on how they list the cards.

  4. Great piece of acetate. Didn't realize Polanco was so tall.

    1. Polanco is huge. He doesn't even seem that fast, but because of his height he takes half the strides as a smaller dude.
