Recent Pick-Ups #1: Parallels, Parallels, and More Parallels

Here's just some recent pick-ups for the player collections. All of these are from trades on SCF (sports card forums).

Here's some 2017 foil parallels. I'm never a big fan of the foil parallels, but they're better than the color parallels this year. You'll see why below. There's some braves guys I collect, a Jacoby Jones for the LSU collection, and a Ryan Madson for that PC.

Topps really needs to bring back borders. The shard look they have this year just looks awful. The golds are number out of 2017. These are all Braves guys except for Schimpf who is an LSU boy.

Here's some more scare parallels. The Wisler in the upper left is the black numbered out of 66. That's the negative parallel of Wisler in the upper left. The bottom left is the vintage stock parallel of Rich Hill which is limited to 99 copies. I don't know if the Nola is considered a parallel, but I'm going to consider it one because it is chrome and the other 87's aren't.

Alright, that's it for this post. Thanks for stopping by, and have a nice day (or night).
