2010 Topps Update Yount Bat Barrel

The second of my higher end Yount cards from this year.  This is the 2010 Topps Update Bat Barrel card #d to 99.

There's been some argument going around the bolg-o-sphere about these cards.  I for one really like them.  They have a great look and are incredibly stout.  They don't even fit in the 180 point holders or screwdowns.
Topps doesn't disguise that these are manufactured items and it is something different.

finally something new

It's been awhile since I added to the Ultimate Yount Collectionnnnnn (echo fade).

But I finally scratched one off the 2010 want list.

I really love the looks of these hat patch cards.  Yes there manufactured nongame used but they still look awesome.  I've had a few I hit opening Topps Products this year a really nice Tony Gwynn and someone else I can't remember, long gone but I've been wanting to get my hands on the Younts.

He has 2 hat cards from series 1, The one pictured above and a "glove" patch card as well, I'm still looking for. 

Also in Update he's got bat barrel cards, the regular and black I have already procured and will be up here when I get them in. 

Also I'm in the works of putting up a list of my collection.  Cards I HAVE which will be much easier than listing cards I need.  Seeing as I'll never have a complete checklist.  That way if you want to trade and you have a card I don't have it'll be easy to tell.

Everybody have a great safe Halloween. cb out.
