This card was feature on the blog many years ago after I picked it up. And I can remember exactly where I got it, which can't be said for every card in the collection. I was at one of rare, and now nonexistent, card shows here in Anchorage and I was thumbing though a miscellaneous box of cards and this popped out at me. It's rare for me to find cards of Robin's at these shows and even rarer to find ones I don't already have and are this hard to find. I asked the seller how much he wanted for it and he wasn't sure what it was worth, so I threw $5 out there and he quickly accepted. Made me wonder if I could have gotten it for less, but I was more than happy to put a Honest Abe down for the card. At the time these were going for about twice that on eBay and being a very low numbered parallel hard to find to begin with. After figuring in what I would have paid in shipping alone my offer and purchase price was more than fair for me.
It's a great looking card, shiny, gold. I was going to make an outdated Austin Powers: Goldmember joke, but I won't. I also like the image is a one not over used. Probably not the best image, but at least it's different.
