I hit the Mother-Lode!!!

Poor titles aside, this post is actually about baseball cards. Ebay bucks are a wonderful thing for habitual spenders like me (albeit spending way less then last year). I decided to put mine to good use and pick up this awesome card!

This is the Mother Lode insert from Metal Universe! They are hard to hit being 1 in 288 packs, so it was much cheaper to just buy the one I wanted (for free!) This one cost me exactly 0 out of my paypal which is another big plus. The diecut is sweet, the scan unfortunately doesn't do it justice.

But saying "I Hit the Mother-Lode!!!" makes it all worth it!

On a completely different note, Topps Series 1 comes out soon! I haven't passed judgement on the design yet until I see the cards in hand. Also, I have not decided how I am going to collect it. I definitely want every Philly but trading for base cards usually isn't a problem. I may go after the purple Toys R Us parallels like last year (More or less broke even selling them and I have about 150 left over right now). Or I may try to create a super rainbow of Ryan Howard and get every parallel from every set this year of him, that could be a fun project.

Either way, no bad problems to have! How are you guys attacking (for lack of a better word) Series 1?

Thanks for reading!


  1. Yep, those are pretty cool! I may have to search one out myself.

  2. These were great cards. Congrats on the cool find.
