Card of the Day - 2013 Topps Update : Yasiel Puig 2013 Rookie Commemorative Patch Card

It's kind of funny that there is a Puig commemorative card in his first year. I picked up Clayton's patch card which is understandable considering what he has done on the field and that the card shows off his 2008 card which was 5 years ago. On the other hand Puig's card that this patch is based on came out no more than a month or so prior to this card's release. Lets see some more years of production before we do a commemorative card eh Topps? But I understand their point of view, strike when the iron is hot and Puig is still hot.

With that all being said here I am Mr. Collector wanting to pick it up and add it to my collection. At the time of me winning the auction there was no book value assigned to it as it was still too new. I won it for just a little under $10. I thought it was a good bargain at the time as I had seen other copies close with a winning price of over $15. Since then the book value came out and has been valued at $25. While I don't see anything selling anywhere near that price it is nice to know that I paid less than half of book.


  1. I think it's a silly card but I understand your wanting it.
