This was a redemption that kept alluding me, but I finally found one on e-bay last month and quickly made my offer. After some back and forth countering, I got the deal done. It took about a month to get this from Topps, and after inspecting the card, I quickly realized the mistake I had made. In my haste to get one of these, I didn't realize that the gold framed isn't numbered out of /25. I assumed that because the black frame was /10, the gold frame was numbered too. Unfortunately I totally overpaid for this unnumbered card. I definitely prefer the gold frame over a black frame, but I'm mad at myself for not taking the time to see that the gold frames were the standard release for this product. Even with the overpay, I love this card, and I'm glad I was able to add it to my collection:

I am super excited for the season to start, but unlike the "experts," I think the Dodgers are going to have their hands full with the West this year. D-Backs and Rockies will definitely be better this year, and those pesky Giants always seem to make life difficult for the Dodgers. I still predict the playoffs this year, but I'm just not so sure the Dodgers will be as dominant as people are saying. One guy I KNOW will be his usual dominant self, is Mr. Kershaw. I haven't posted much lately, but I wanted to show off a few of my most recent e-bay purchases as well as some redemptions. I hope you enjoy, and GO DODGERS!
