2005 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes #64 Red Jersey Parallel

Year: 2005
Manufacturer: Upper Deck
Set: Baseball Heroes
Card Number: 64
Card Type: Color Parallel Relic
Color Parallel: Red
Relic Type: Jersey
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered, Jersey Relic
Serial Number: 11/99

Ah 2005 the year of the parallel card.  2005 is the year that Robin had the most cards ever produced for him. According to the Trading Card Database Robin had over 1000 cards produced for him in 2005.  That's a lot of cards to chase. Donruss help with a few of their sets, but Upper Deck also put out some sets with huge amounts of inserts and variations and Baseball Heroes is one of those sets.

Robin has 5 base cards in the set, 61-65 and all the color parallels and relic and auto parallels that go with those 5 cards.  I think Robin has at least 80 cards in this set alone if not closer to 100.  

I've given up trying to get all the cards from this set.  But when a nice red parallel jersey card almost falls into you lap, well I'm not going to pass it up.  I also can't believe how cheap I got this card for considering how overpriced a lot of Robin's cards seem to me these days on eBay.

But it's a really nice card with a great jersey piece.  At first glace it may just seem like a plain grey swatch, but if you look close you can see a couple stitches running through the piece.
