My latest eBay purchase was a 2012 Topps Update Silk card of Jason Marquis. The card was only about 2 bucks. Marquis is a journeyman pitcher who is now with the Padres. It seems like he has been around forever. This is probably the most entry level of all the Topps Silk cards. It probably shouldn't exist. It is numbered 30/50. The Silk cards are going to be different in 2013 in that they will include retro cards. I am not sure how I feel about that though.
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
