Every now and then I get a package of cards that makes me say holy crap. This was one of those packages. Why because there was about 600 cards in it. I don't remember the specifics of the giveaway but Cameron of Reds and More was wanting to purge some cards and I choose to take his Red Sox. Out of the 600 I needed about 150 of them. That isn't too bad, I've done way worse at times. Needless to say I am going to have to find a whole bunch of Reds to send out now. So lets look at some of the stuff I got.
2009 Bowman Parallels
I'm put these in my binder but I'm still not sure exactly what they were. BP BPP BPW BPPW is just to confusing for me. What happened to 1, 2, 3, 4.... Even with the odd numbers I really appreciated the parallel cards.
Either Cameron is a prospector or he got sucked into the Strasburg hype machine and bought a whole bunch of 2010 Bowman. I only scanned the inserts (and Pedrioa) but he sent me almost a complete team set.
2010 A & G
I'm way behind on my base A&G team set. Someone promised me a whole bunch of them but never followed through so I'm looks like I am going to be chasing these things all year again.
2009 Upper Deck Inserts
One of the thousand different colored StarQuest Becketts. This one was Uncommon Blue I think. Honestly except for the green i can't tell the rest apart. The other card is a Mike Lowell 2009 UDX Xponential. I really like this subset and it's one of the few subsets that I chase.
The Chrome Lowell leaves me only one card short of the team set. The Red Backed Wakefield pushed me over the edge to add these to my checklist and start chasing them. It wasn't just this Wakefield, Gordon sent me a red Backed Pedroia the day before. Between the two of them it ended up on my list. I didn't know there was Topps 52 Chrome but the Okajima in the middle is a serial numbered Chrome card.
I got a load of 2009, 2010 and now 2004 Bowman from Cameron so I think it is safe to say that Cameron is at least a closet prospector. The Micky hall is a jersey card. Oddly it is numbered exactly the same as the regular version. Does that mean there is a jersey parallel to the whole dang set? Bowman confuses me.
I was never a big Donruss fan so but this looks like it would have been a pretty good set.
All kinds of stuff here from Gold Parallels to super prospects that got traded away and never have quite lived up to their potential.
I scanned them but forgot to rotate them and Blogger won't let me so turn your head to the right (or your screen to the left) and enjoy.
I didn't get just all new stuff. nestled amongst all the new stuff there was this well used 72 Topps and a few Very VERY WELL USED 75s.
Thanks Cameron for all the cards. I'm sure I don't have 600 Reds to send you but I will be working on a package to send your way.
