My First 2017 Archives Buyback

I was a little slow to this release.  Mostly because the cards were not appreciably different than what Topps did just the year before.  In fact, this very card was a buyback in 2016 as well, but it was serial-numbered to 2.  I do not think I will be going crazy for all of these once again, unless the price is decent.  I do like adding cards from the teams other than the Indians, so that will likely be the first goal.  I really want the 2005 Topps Total card autographed as Alomar is in a Rangers uniform in that one.

Tek Pattern 13

One of these days, I will have this set complete.  I have just six more to find.  A forum member was gracious enough to send me this one for free.  84 down, 6 to go.

2003 Upper Deck 40 Man Rainbow

I have been away for awhile and have not added many cards to my player collection.  This was the only one during my absence from blogging, but it is a pretty decent, rare one.
I really do not know why these are "rainbow" parallels.  It is more of a silver sheen.  But these were pretty rare cards, serial-numbered to just 40.  It is nice to add this to my collection, crossing off a rare White Sox card for my collection.

I have not been keeping up with the Alomar collection much.  I will work on that a little.
