Surprise cards from All The Way To The Backstop
A few days ago, I got a surprise envelope from Marcus overat “All the Way to the Backstop.” Marcus sent me a handful of Yanks from 2012 Archives and Bowman.
I really like the Archives Mantle (I know, I know, another Topps Mantle). The white just makes it look so much different than others. I also noticed that the signature on the 1971 Rivera is different than his current autograph. It looks like perhaps it was his original Topps contract signature. His autograph now is a little more mature, yet still perfectly legible.
The Betances 2012 Bowman will go straight to my Dellin PC.
Marcus, thanks for the Yanks!
