So, I got like 40 hits on my White Whale post. That isn't too bad after taking off a couple years. (Strangely enough my most read post is was the one right before the Whale post. The 2015 post with the picture of a Topps car sticker. It has THOUSANDS of hits.
Anyway, I found a draft in my Blogger from 2013. Only someone that has taken a few years off of blogging can find a 5 year old draft. I had saved a title "Cardboard Collection Group Break" and had two scans, no other info. So evidently 5+ years ago I was part of a group break and I got at least these two cards. Seems and odd thing to get from a break in 2013. Maybe I got skunked and this was a conciliation package?
John Valentin is an often forgotten valuable part of the team in the 90s. He hit at or around .300 for almost half a decade yet is almost totally forgotten. Topps didn't forget him though. Here is a nice Stadium Club action shot, sort of. It really a Chrome version of Stadium Club.
Also in my draft folder was this currently underrated Topps Laser card. I remember when Laser came out, they were crazy expensive per pack. Even the commons were sought after. That crazy expensive back then was probably only like $5 but they still seemed glaringly overpriced considering they are pretty darn ugly. Now they are in dime boxes wherever dime boxes are found.
