I picked up a pair of silk cards from 2013 Topps Update on Listia for about 1,000 credits each. The cards feature the player’s rookie card rather than the base card from the 2013 set. On the left is Tim Lincecum. His rookie card is from 2007 Topps Update. I bought a little bit of this product in search of Joba Chamberlain’s rookie. I never got the Joba card and I never got a Lincecum card. The card on the right is former Yankee Robinson Cano. This was the card that I was really after. It still feels like Cano is on the Yankees. His presence would beat that of Martin Prado or Stephen Drew. I never really bought any 2003 Topps. It’s a decent design, but 2003 was a year that covered my collecting hiatus.
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.
