Digging for Gold

I always enjoy picking up minor league cards.  It's fun to see players progress through the system before reaching the majors.  And though minor league cards have become major league boring since Topps took over the exclusive license, I still try to pick up cards that strike my fancy.  And for about $2, this gold parallel /50 seemed like a great addition.
Despite solid play throughout the minors, Alen Hanson hasn't gotten a lot of love in the hobby.  He still has plenty of room for development in the minors, but he's a guy I look forward to seeing in Pittsburgh in the not too distant future.


  1. Hanson is a great eBay buy right now. I've added a ton of stuff over the past year.

    1. I don't think I've paid more than $2-3 for any of the autos of his I own. I don't know that he'll have the kind of power he showed a couple years ago at WV, but he definitely seems headed towards being our future 2B. It could be a pretty fun lineup with the speed of our outfield plus Hanson.
