With that said, on Friday, mixed in with the usual bills, junk mail, and coupons, was an envelope from friend of the blog, and the Writer's Journey's own, Jason Carter. As you recall, he went to the Redsfest a few weeks ago, and was able to snag a few extra cards from the Topps Redsfest set. In said envelope were the following four cards:
After looking at scan after scan, it's nice to get an up close look regarding how the 2010 design looks in real life. This does give me something to look forward to come January when the real stuff goes live.
Thanks Jason, I appreciate the gift. To anyone else who went to Redsfest was able to get extra cards of the other four players (Brandon Phillips, Ryan Hanigan, Joey Votto, Drew Stubbs), if you're interested in helping me complete this eight-card set, please drop me a line.
On an unrelated note, I know that the Pirates, Twins, Cardinals, Braves, and Orioles are going to have their own FanFests soon too. If anybody who reads this blog plans on going to any of these and other fan conventions, and there are Topps cards being given away, please let me know so we can get them spotlighted on the blog. Bonus and gratuitous recognition if you'd be willing to send these cards to me. Thanks in advance.
