Low End Freeman

When you have multiple hobbies as I do you have to be frugal at some point. Thankfully it's a little easier to be frugal with trading cards, especially if your patient and sometimes a little lucky. I can't say I won this lot of cards recently because I haven't bought much outside of some 2017 Topps, but none the less I scored this two card lot of Freddie Freeman relics for about $4 shipped. Needless to say I was very happy as Freeman is currently one of my favorite players to collect and watch play.

2016 Topps Tribute Diamond Cuts Relic #DC-FF (175/199)

I usually stay away from the higher end products for several reasons, so this relic from Topps Tribute is my first exposure to the brand. Decent cardstock, rainbow sheen to the card front a large piece of red jersey...I love it.

2015 Topps Gypsy Queen Relic #GQR-FF

I've been building the annual Gypsy Queen set since it first launched several years ago. I've had modest success at pulling relics from retail packs and blasters, but this Freeman relic has evaded my grasp until now. Nothing fancy, but some times that's OK.

  1. Nice! Patience can be difficult for me at times in this hobby. Would probably save a lot of money if I could exercise it more often! Haha

    1. You're right, practicing patience is hard! I'm not always that good either as I'm rather an impulse buyer at times.

  2. I like that the relic piece is shaped like a baseball diamond. Cool!

    1. I agree it does look cool. Better than just your standard square swatch.

  4. I've become a Freeman collector on a Technicality.. Since he holds Dual Citizenship, he does technically qualify as a Canadian. Really, since I have Kevin Reimer in my collection (Same thing really) I should include Freeman
