So this marks my first post on my...new Toshiba Satellite. What can I say? Eight years is enough to inspire some brand loyalty. In clearing out the (and slightly laughable 125GB) hard drive (onto my new, shiny, 1TB hard drive), I came across some scans that never made it up onto the blog.
And with my Cyber Monday order from D&A scheduled to arrive Monday, this seems fitting. Best part about this card? It was free. It came as my freebie bonus packs from an order around Christmas in 2008 or 2009. In three packs of 2005 diamond Kings, I hit the Schmidt and a Matt Williams game used card. Not bad for some throw in, right?
It's strange how the hobby comes full circle. At the time, people complained about the product being watered down because there were too many hits and parallel levels - hence the boxes being broken down as freebie packs.
Today? The boxes are very tough to come by, and pricey when you can find them. Guess those pesky framed colored borders don't look so bad when Topps has four million color variations each year.
