Card Set: Update Baseball
Card Number: H-81
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Highlight of the Year
Fresh out of the mailbox! I've been seeing these cards go for as much as $4, which seems crazy to me given it's just a base insert. My card comes much cheaper. I picked up a lot of 5 of these bad boys off of justcommons.com for a whole thirty five cents a piece. It was part of a larger order filling some Brewers team set needs from recent releases.
The insert comes from Topps' big continuation insert from Series 1 and 2. The complete set has 90 cards, 30 from each series. I featured this card and it's autograph variation in a post when Update came out, but this is the collection post.
The card celebrates Robin joining the 3000 hits club, a stat that pretty much made him a first ballot shoe in. I really like the overall design and look of the set, but I'm just not into trying to put together monster insert sets anymore, so the only cards I keep are for my team and player collections.
A great cheap addition to the collection.
