Took Long Enough

Phew! Second last pack and I finally get a Jay. It is a dupe of one of the couple Jays I have from the set, but since I will be slowly working to complete this one, still a solid pick up!

It was already a winner of a pack with Donalson, but then also getting Ichiro as a metallic snowflake parallel - sweet. A career WAR of almost 60. Not sure you need to say much more about the man as that sums up his ability in a nutshell.

Glad he was able to end his career on the field in Seattle, even if his last couple games didn't end up with a final hit in 2019.

The rest of the back - all base card needs.

8 Packs, 80 Cards, 252 Points

We end today with some more baseball in the form of a quick PWE trade with TCDB member, and first time trade partner lord_bagel who wanted a few more late 80s and early 90s baseball cards and sent my way these...

A trio of rookie cards as we slap the "RC" on every single card it seems, from the first year. The Chrome refractor of Jansen is nice, and my first such card for 2019 and the same is true of the Freshman Flash card of Rowdy.

Amazing little PWE, and many thanks to he who is lord of all bagels!


  1. Congratulations on pulling a Blue Jay. As for the rookie card logo... I wish Topps would reserve that for the base cards instead of every single insert.
