An "old dude" for his birthday

My oldest had a birthday recently and while he still limps around a bit, his leg is mostly healed. His birthday requests were few, mostly money for something he's saving for, and a few other small things.

One thing he asked for was Topps Series 2 cards. His grandpa gave him one of those 72 card boxes of Series 1 and a couple of Series 2 rack packs.

In the Series 2 packs, he found 4 Rangers, including two sporting the World Series logo on their right sleeves. The Mitch Moreland and Elvis Andrus shots are from home games. I'm not 100% sure, but both shots look like they are from Game 3.

He also pulled this "old guy".

I had to explain to him that this "old guy" was pretty darn good.

He's gone gaga for the shiny parallels, so as of right now, this isn't for trade. He may also be the only person in America who is actually entering those ToppsTown codes.

  1. If he needs some more ToppsTown codes I have a whole pile of them.
