Card of the Day - 2014 Topps : Mike Trout Base SP Photo Variation ( Future Stars )
Series 2 from Topps has been out for a little while and I have yet to get my hands on any base cards that I am wanting/needing for my collection. But in the meantime I have been able to get my hands on the red foil parallels and some Robinson inserts and now I can add the photo variation of Trout to the pile.
Other than parallels I love to hunt down these variations. Most if not all the time they are not numbered but they are limited and that is a draw for me. At the time of purchase I was on the down swing of sales as they were selling for a little less of $20 but sometimes a little more. I felt that was too much so I waited on the sidelines till this one came up and I won it for a little less than $10. A reasonable amount I thought considering there was no book value assigned to it as of yet.
** Edit - Book value has since come out and it is set at $20. Purchase seems even more reasonable now
