Gonna start it out with football inserts and there were plenty to share. Here are Absolute football base rookies and red/blue spectrum base players and rookies.
Sanchez and Suh rookies from Platinum.
Stacy is a gold parallel numbered to 49
Hogg Heaven! Even a Boss Hogg numbered parallel!
EVEN MORE SHINY!
Steve Smith is numbered to 25.
Now onto some basketball!
Sweet Prizm parallels
Even a Larry Bird Prizm parallel
Now onto warmer weather thoughts. The thoughts of green grass, the sound of a bat cracking and the Yankees fans like myself missing Derek Jeter. Here are some baseball inserts and a few Yankee PC adds!
Always been a Heritage fan
MORE SHINY GOODNESS.
Now onto a few Griffeys. These two I haven't seen before and quite honestly don't know what they are. They are from 1989 and something I definitely don't have. Pretty cool.
This card has always been a fun one to see. Upper Deck did this a few times in the 90's.
Now onto my first 2015 Topps baseball adds. Here are my FIRST two Yankees of 2015.
Inserts are a okay. I wished they would put more effort in them such as adding foils or embossing or something amongst those lines. Seems these are more of a subset or filler to me. Another thing would be nice if they stopped shoving boxes full of them. Make them harder to find and only a few per box.
I like this years gold parallels. A bit of shine to them.
These are my favorites of the 2015 Topps inserts so far. I like when companies add something new by thinking outside the box. I love the pictures they used too. Jeff Bridges looks like he just had a few cold ones, 50 Cent looks like he should be pitching for the Mets (yeah that was a slam) Agnes is playing ski-ball and Tom could probably make the Cubs team (yes another slam)
Now I must give some props where they are due. Grady is a very generous collector and someone who has become a friend. I hope the both of us continue to do these packages for one-another. It's a lot of fun no matter which end you are on. I enjoy packing up and setting stuff aside for him just as much as I enjoy receiving it, and showing it off too!
Once again, A BIG GINORMOUS THANKS GOES OUT TO GRADY!
