I made a small contribution recently and, in exchange, Robert was nice enough to shoot me a few cards to help out with my Topps Series 2 inserts list.
|Gold Standard, #GS-36 & GS-41
|Cal, Verlander and Storen
By the way, speaking of "Gold Futures," it dawned on me upon looking at this Drew Storen card that this design isn't too dissimilar from another recent Topps product:
|2012 Topps Football, #197
What do you think? The team logo on the football card is encased in a football-shaped enclosure, but otherwise the idea is the same. I know a lot of people really dig the look of `12 football and are happy that Topps didn't just mimic the baseball design. Same here. But, it looks like the design team at Topps didn't veer too far into the weeds for their football decor. Just some food for thought.
Anyhow, thanks a bunch for the inserts, Robert! And continued luck with your Insanity...
