It's my turn (yay) to show off what I got in our Transatlantic triple break. Brian went with 2006 Ovation and 2011 Lineage. I had some teams, they had the others, blablabla. And even though Brian had already sent me an envelope a few days before, he went back to the post office to ship those out ASAP (thank you btw the USPS for increasing by 20% international rates. Really. But there is a way around it by asking for the cheapest option possible. It exists ! Probably called Economy, or something).
Nothing too exciting about the photos, naturally, but the embossed feel is pretty cool. I had no idea there were parallels (the Manny is a gold parallel numbered to 499).
It's always really cool to get some PC inserts in our breaks. Another jersey so-called relic, but I don't care, it's Vernon Wells AND I like the card (but yeah, they really need to look for new ideas now, they've been doing this for 20 years after all).
I opened myself a box of lineage sometime last year, and it really was a blast. A ton of fun inserts and a nice lineup. Too bad they didn't spend a lot of time thinking out the backs of the cards though.
Shiny parallels !
Brian even managed to find some Blue Jays (woohoo, press proof !) and a great Ichiro to add to his package
