Cashing in on Crawford!

Hey guys, Drew back here! It sure has been nice to have some eBay money to use for the first time in so long. On the same day I found that Scherzer autograph I posted recently, I found this card for dirt cheap of an emerging young star on my favorite National League team! 

Ah, yes. Gypsy Queen found a way to grow on me. I've loved each year's Gypsy Queen product thus far, but this year I really wasn't impressed at first. But, the more I've seen, the more I'm beginning to love this year's unique design. Some cards tend to work into the template more than others, but this card in particular is a thing of beauty.

Brandon Crawford is the double play partner of my current favorite player in the game, Joe Panik. Both Panik and Crawford have had spectacular 2015 campaigns, and both are currently worthy of being named to this year's All Star team. Crawford is batting .288 with 8 home runs, 38 RBI, and he is known to make dazzling highlight plays at shortstop. There is a lot to like about this kid's future, and all signs indicate that his current statistical output is no mirage. I payed a higher amount for the shipping alone on this card than for the card itself, and I think down the road I'll be happy I took the chance on it!

See Ya!
