Yesterday the mailman brought me my newest Virdon card. Yes it is an ugly ass frankencut but it is my 130th unique Virdon card.
It is also my second one since I said I was going to acquire 3 this year. So one more and I have attained my goal but it is safe to say if I find another I'm going to buy it, within reason. I say within reason because one I need just got listed on eBay but it is out of my price range. If someone wants to buy it for me I will trade them a Joe Frazier auto, a Barry Sanders Score RC, and whatever else makes it even.
2012 was a big year for Virdon cards. Between Topps and TriStar there were 14 new Virdon's issued. It is the most cards issued for him in a single year. From the looks of it 2013 will be the total opposite. I'm thinking there will be a good chance that no Virdons are issued at all this year. He was shut out of Heritage since there are no Buyback cards this year (except Beatles and oddball things) and surely he won't be in Signa Cuts two years in a row. I see it as both good and bad. Bad because there is nothing new to chase but good because it is easier on the wallet.
