2008 Donruss Threads Autograph #122 422/875

Highlight of the package.
Here are a few more I picked out to display.

2013 Panini Elite Extra Edition No. 8

I just don't get it.
The whole premise of the card is Jim Abbott being a 1st round draft pick by the Angels,
a "Historic California" Pick.
But Panini chose to show Abbott in an airbrushed Yankee or White Sox uniform.
It burns me.

I like cards of the yungins.
Every Spring I send out cards to the young guys invited to camp, hoping to get an autograph in return.
I see three maybe four of these that will get sent out this spring.

Topps did a good job replicating the 1972 design but what they forgot was the 3D look typical of the 1972 set, like that of Vada Pinson.
A pair of 3D glasses make Vada pop right out of the card.

2014 Bowman Platinum 1989 Bowman Is Back 89BIB-MT

Happy to get this card since I recently lost out on a bidding war for another one on Listia.
Happy also that I was able to keep all those credits I would have used on it that I have since used on other cool cards.
Very happy to get this Zip.
