I promised a rant was coming in the post I put up this morning. While preparing for that post, I realized I needed to do a little research first so I'll have a rant for you soon.
Now on to the reason for this post. I've been pulling some pretty good stuff lately. My son hit that Josh Hamilton hand numbered mini #d to 25. I got the red ink auto from Ginter. I pulled a patch card just yesterday that was a surprise (post forthcoming). All that and I've never, ever pulled a pink parallel.
Well, I finally got one, but I didn't pull it myself. It came from Jeff and all it's going to cost me is some Tigers cards.
Pink parallel AND a throw back uni? What's not to like. The Derek Holland card is #26/50 and a very welcome addition to my Rangers collection. I appreciate Jeff thinking of me when he pulled it.
He sent over a bounty of other great Rangers like this 1997 Pinnacle XPress Rusty Greer.
Pinnacle may be back for 2013, but the lack of a license will keep it from ever being as great as this card.
Collect-A-Books are for cool kids and I guess that makes me one of the cool kids because now I have this great 1990 Nolan Ryan version.
This 1993 Score card brought back a flood of memories. That is old Arlington Stadium where I experienced my first major league game. If memory serves this site is now a parking lot for the Ballpark in Arlington which opened in 1994.
Thanks for the great package Jeff. I hope you enjoy the return package as much as I enjoyed this one.
