The participants this time were a box of 2004 Bowman and one of 2000 Finest. I didn't own any Blue Jays from those sets, so it was a great choice for me.
I had no idea inserts existed also in a refractor version. Pretty cool. I'll never get used to Boggs in that uniform...
More inserts, and a couple base cards. I've always liked Finest, even if it's a little over the top sometimes.
Speaking of which, that box topper is also mine ! Supersized Pedro is always scarier.
And finally, some much needed Blue Jays for my collection. I'm reading David Well's biography right now...and it's quite something !
Onto Bowman, with its combination of chrome, base and parallels. Here are the Blue Jays
The people at Bowman wanted to make sure I got as many variations of Youkilis as possible. Base, chrome, gold and refractor.
Now, for the trade portion of the package !
I don't know if that auto was IP or TTM, but it's definitely legit. And I love the choice of the card also.
Brian sent me some great cards once again, but this one is my favorite : 1969 Aparicio !
A great variety of PC players !
I love that Moon card. It's acetate, which allows you to have a great view of my table underneath it.
And finally, some modern Blue Jays (and a very cool Ultra insert feat Jose Cruz jr), including my first taste of 2016 Bowman's Best. I should have a closer look at that set, actually, I like what they did with the base cards.
Thanks again Brian, can't wait to see what you pick next !
