2005 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia Team Tandems Spectrum

Year: 2005
Manufacturer: Playoff
Card Set: Absolute Memorabilia
Card Number: TT-11
Card Type: Insert Parallel
Insert Set: Team Tandems
Parallel: Spectrum
Card Attributes: Serial Numbered
Serial Number: 135/150

2005 the year of the Yount! The Trading Card Database lists of 1000 cards for Robin that year, 1011 to be exact. lists 1020.  I'm curious which ones are missing from the database?

Anywho, 2005 marked the zenith of inserts, parallel cards and insert parallel cards.  Seriously even by todays standards it was a little insane.  Upper Deck and Donruss went back and forth trying to one up each other with the number of variations and parallels sets would contain. In this set alone Robin has almost 100 cards to chase.  That's pretty insane.

I like this Team Tandem set not because I like the look of the card or the layout, which was designed with the relic versions in mind.  But I love the fact that this card includes my two favorite Brewers of all time.  Anytime I get a card that has both Molly and the Kid together it's a great card.  Factor in that the base card from this insert set is numbered to just 250 and the chase is one.  This card is the Spectrum parallel which is very shiny.
