2009 Topps Silk: Carlos Lee

I recently purchased my first Topps Silk card. I got it for $3.79 shipped on eBay. It is a 2009 Carlos Lee card numbered 26/50. It’s not that I’m a Carlos Lee fan, but the card was cheap and I was curious. I was surprised at how thick the actual silk piece is. I was expecting something that was a little more flimsy. Although the picture on the front matches the base Topps card, the back of the card is blank. I really like this type of card. It’s something different then anything else I own. I’m sure the novelty will eventually wear off though. But seriously what a time to be alive – a baseball card made of silk.
