Now onto what has arrived recently. After viewing a post on Crinkly Wrappers' blog a week or so ago about the existence of the red bordered parallel 2010 Topps cards I hit up eBay looking for some of the Braves players. Word is out as the prices for some of the cards had already climbed a little higher than I wanted to pay. Here is what I managed to pick up in round 1:
#296 Atlanta Braves (173/299)
#640 Matt Diaz (262/299)
And lastly 2 players that are currently kicking around in AAA Gwinette
#77 Kenshin Kawakami (072/299)
#477 Nate McLouth (096/299)
For the record - I only picked up the Kawakami & McLouth cards because the same seller had them and I figured no one would bid against me. I was right as I grabbed each for $.99. The Diaz card however ended up at $4.75. I wonder if his big brother Jonny was bidding the price up? I do have to say that I love the striking red border. It's my favorite parallel of Topps this year. I'll be on the lookout for Cabrera, Heyward, Jones, McCann, Prado and the rest for sure.
