2012 Topps Series 1 Insert Review: Gold Futures

This is my favorite so far reviewed, and 2nd favorite overall. Just a super clean card. The black border lends the card a classy feel next to the gold detailing. I wish the logos weren't so large, and in some strange flag form. But its my only real knock on the insert series.

The featured players are a great mix. The guy above is going to have a huge year after he gets rid of this shoulder thing that is having him split time between DH and 1B.

Many of the young players are going to be exciting to watch this year. Starlin Castro is one of my favorites in this series as well. .I plan on catching many Wrigley games this year. You'll most often find me 1st base side.

I got a whole set extra. Just let me know what you need to complete your set.

My First Real Trade

I am very excited.

I have finally gotten the chance to complete a real trade. One where I actually sent a card, through the mail, to a mate that sent me one.

This is the card I sent:

Adam from, must have read one of my "Plasticine" posts, and said he needed it for his collection. And, who am I to keep this knuckler from a friend. Into the mail you go sir, a fine career you had indeed.

This is what I got:

A sweet refractor. A Cardinal.


Wakefield is out of here!!!

Anyone that wants to trade, as I get more cards, please check out my haves and wants list. I know its small now, but like a crystal in my garden, grow it will.

Thanks Adam.
