My buddy Judson of My Cardboard Habit is always looking out for me. He recently busted some 2015 Topps Tek, and pulled two cards he thought I would enjoy. He sent them my way, and he was damn right. I do enjoy them.
The only Tek card I had up to this point was an Al Leiter auto I splurged on. I didn’t have any base or parallels.
The first card in the toploader was a base card. Just a little guy named Mr. October:
Very cool. But the next card. The next card was very unexpected!
That’s a Dellin Betances gold parallel numbered to just 35! I believe it’s a gold rainbow parallel. Whether or not is has other versions or backgrounds, I have no idea. What I do know is that it’s a very nice card. It’s definitely one of the nicest Dellin cards in my collection. Something about a clear cut acetate card plus gold just makes for a really classy card. Oh, and Dellin is really awesome too.
Judson, thanks my friend!
