My Friday Fix
Friday shoulda been the day that 2014 Topps Heritage arrived on hobby and retail shelves around the country. But, well, you know... sometimes Topps happens. And, as a result, another week we'll forced to wait.
Nonetheless, a little dose of eBay magic makes everything all better. Especially when I can find a color bordered variation of one of my favorite cards from the 2013 Heritage set. I should be hoarding my resources to polish off the remaining pieces of the short print checklist, but I couldn't resist this Target red Bryce Harper.
I don't envision myself completing any of the colored variation sets, but they sure are fun to collect!
Likewise, I had to get my hands on this one. I've had my eye on this 2013 Archives SP of Otis Nixon for a long time, and was extremely happy to find a a copy for under a buck shipped. Probably my favorite card -- SP or otherwise -- from this past year's Archives set. It's especially effective because I think it perfectly carries the vibe of the '92 Topps set, which included a lot of interesting photography.
Otis will make a grand addition to my horizontal card frankenset.
