On the Radar - 2019 Topps Tier One Yount Checklist

2019 Topps Tier One Limited Lumber #T1LL-RY #/1
2019 Topps Tier One Bat Knobs #T1BK-RY #/1

If either of these cards show up I'll archive the images here.

2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes Charcoal Parallel

Year: 2008
Manufacturer: Upper Deck
Set: Baseball Heroes
Card Number: 99
Card Type: Base Parallel
Parallel Set: Charcoal
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 295/399

The 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes set is the poster child for parallels.  Much like the insane sets put out by Donruss earlier the set pretty much centers around the base checklist and then just parallels it to death.  There are 10 base color parallels alone for this set and then 20 auto, relic, and auto relic parallels.  Although not every player is in every parallel set.  Robin's card here is the Charcoal parallel, or gray.  Besides the coloring, which is also featured on the back, each parallel, except for the Black parallel, is serial numbered.  The Charcoal just happen to be numbered out of 399, with just the Emerald, numbered to 499, and the unnumbered Black parallels being less rare.

2005 Fleer Cooperstown Tribute

Year: 2005
Manufacturer: Fleer
Set: Tradition
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Cooperstown Tribute
Card Number: 4CT
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 1100/1999


Nothing like a shiny foilboard card to get the day off right.  I'm a big fan of Cooperstown tribute sets and cards.  The scan really doesn't do the card justice on just how shiny it is.

These Cooperstown Tribute cards were inserted into the Fleer Tradition set.  Tradition had become Fleers flagship set for the most part and the base set was suppose to be 750 cards, but Fleer's bankruptcy meant only Series 1 was release.  It's very possible that the 10 card Tribute set would have been much larger, but at least we got Robin included before the Fleer brand got sold to Upper Deck.  The cards are serial numbered to the year of induction, so Robin's is out of 1999.  There is an unnumbered gold parallel which was the retail insert for this set and there are two relic parallels to chase.

2019 Topps Series 1 Cactus League Legends

Year: 2019
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Flagship, Series 1
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Cactus League Legends
Card Number: CLL-29


This card was almost free.  Almost it literally cost me one cent.  Last month ebay was offering a $3 dollar off coupon, but the purchase had to be at least $3.01.  I saw lots of great pick ups all over twitter and after some careful deliberation I decided to try and pick up this card.  After scouring the ebay listings for Robin's 2019 cards I found a seller who had this card discounted to $2.58 with free shipping.  So I politely asked if they would be willing to raise the price to $3.01 so I could take advantage of the coupon, which they graciously did.  And about a week later I have Robin's 2019 Topps Series 1 Cactus League Legends insert card.  This set and it's cousin the Grapefruit League Greats are retail only inserts and I'm done buying Series 1 packs and I have yet to see an example show up at COMC.  It's a cool looking card and I wasn't sure if it was shiny, like foil board, or not.  It's not, but I think these would look great on foilboard, or even better chromed.
