Card of the Day - 2013 Topps Five Star : Yasiel Puig Jumbo Jersey Relic Card ( 35 / 35 )

Thought this would be an appropriate way to end the month as I met up with Yasiel back on Wednesday as seen HERE and will be attending Fan Fest tomorrow at Dodger Stadium where Yasiel will be signing autographs. One day closer to Spring Training for the Boys in blue.

The Five Star brand is a high end card set that basically just has superstars in the set. Yasiel is represented in various inserts but this is the card I just had to get my hands on.

As we all know the Dodger's colors are blue, white, gray and a touch of red. Once a year though on St. Patrick's Day they don green jerseys for that one day. Now like most relic cards, this one says on the back that this patch is from a non specific game but being green and it being Puig's first season we know when and where this relic was made from. A unique card I wanted to acquire.

This insert's parallel was the "easiest" to win as it has a whopping 35 copies. = ) Other color parallels were at 15, 10 etc. I set my eyes on this beauty and won it at the very last minute. The seller sent the card promptly and I had it in my grubby little hands within a couple of days. Probably won't be looking for many more green Dodger jerseys but I am glad that I was able to win this at a reasonable cost to me.

Truly limited.
