Dbacks cards a pretty hit-or-miss at shows in my experience. Other than Paul Goldschmidt and maybe Randy Johnson, sellers don't exactly pay attention to them or take the time to separate out Dbacks cards like they would the Braves, Red Sox, Yankees, Cubs, or Dodgers. It's also harder to track down a good selection of Dbacks simply because they have only been around since 1998. In a way, it makes the hunt more fun for me, but it can also be discouraging at times.
The Skybox Metal Xplosion card is actually made of metal! It's like a printing plate but heavier.
This pile of die cut/heritage chrome/refractor/tek/numbered goodness makes me feel like a giddy kid again. (Travis Lee sighting!)
The Bowman Brandon Drury RC caught me off guard when I pulled it. I had to take a closer look at it as I hadn't seen it before. It seemed off and after a few seconds I realized that Topps used a photo of Jake Lamb. I can't believe they're still making those mistakes. C'mon, Topps!!
Some of these I had never seen before, so it was fun to look them over and read the backs while I was at the show. The two Sherzer RCs were surprisingly picked out of dime boxes
And I'll finish off the Dbacks portion with cards of 2001 World Champions in their earlier/later playing days for other teams. The Mark Grace Fleer RC was nice to grab out of a 10 cent box.
Well that's it for now! I've got a few more card show posts, including the trade bait post, so stay tuned!
Thanks for reading!
