Patch Card – Stephen Stradburg000_0002

Overall great looking cards with plaenty of inserts. The Strasburg patch card looks awesome even with it being created for 2013 Topps. If you take the time to read the back, I like the Career Chase tidbit on each card, like on Shin-Soo Choo card it reads, “With 265 extra base hits, Choo is 1.212 away from Hank Aaron’s all-time record of 1,477. Or the back of Clayton Kershaw card, we all know now that he’s a big Taylor Swift fan. Like any of the cards listed here check out my Ebay auctions, some will be posted and even more after this weeks Hobby breaks.
