If my count is correct, there are a baker's dozen Blue Jay cards in 2013 Topps Series 1, not including the 2 out of bounds short prints. Not too long after the flagship was released, I was able to document the first handful of Wal-Mart blue parallels of Jays that came my way (5 in total). I also grossed a couple of people out by showing off the Emerald Green Colby Rasmus parallel in stunning size and clarity. Sorry about that....
Now, I get to show off 6 Target red parallels that I've been fortunate enough to receive. First, 3 of them from Pat over at Hot Corner Cards, who has quickly become a great supplier of blue bird cards for me.
Hechavarria was one of the over 100 players involved in the Jays-Marlins rape during the winter. The other 2 cards are the regular base (not SPs) of Lawrie and Davis. Anyone know if they are issuing the SPs in the bordered variations as well?
Next up, a trio of hurlers from the master of the 10 cent card....Dime Box Nick
Brandon Lyon is a member of the Mets staff now, and throwing fairly well for them in spring training so far. Happ is a nice piece of insurance just in case one of the Jays starters is injured, or struggles like Romero did last year. I do hope Ricky returns to his old form, because if he does there aren't many 5 man staffs that compare to Toronto's.
Sorry for the quick post, I'm up at 4 am tomorrow.....work really does get in the way sometimes.
Pat/Nick, thank you both for the cards....as always they are very much appreciated.
thanks for reading, Robert
