Yowza check out this new Rollie for the collection.

While it's been incredibly slow on the Robin Yount front for new stuff for the Yount collection it's been awesome for the Rollie Collection. There is a ton of stuff coming out for Rollie.

Both Marquee and Triple Threads have multiple high end relic cards for the man and I've been snagging them when I can.  I got my Titanic Threads (with Rollies number) already. And I've also picked up a couple  of the other Unity Relics from Triple Threads, still waiting for them though.  But I got this bad boy the other day and I all I have to say is Wow!!!
I think I stole this card too.  I mean it wasn't cheap, but I definitely got it for way under what it was worth.

This card will most definitely make my Top 100 over at Collector's Crack.  I mean look at that awesome patch.  And it's numbered to 3!! Freaking 3.  I know not a 1/1 but damn 3.  1/3 to be exact.

Now I have one complaint with Topps here.  Rollies in an A's uniform.  Nothing wrong with that, Rollie was awesome in an A's uni.  No my problem is he's in an A's Uni and the patch is obviously from a Brewers uniform.  I've been seeing this a lot with both Marquee and Triple Threads were Topps puts in a different team patch from the one pictured on the card.  It just seems it would be nice to have both match up.  That can't be that hard can it?

Here's what the back of the card looks like.
I love the little blurb at the bottom, "Look for two other cards in this set to create your own Triple Threads unity triple relic card!" Oh yeah because cards numbered to 3 with awesome patch relics on them are a dime a dozen.

Anyways another great addition to the Rollie Super Collection.

A new Titanic Rollie for the collection.

With Topps Marquee and Triple Thread both putting out new Rollie cards I've been on Rollie overload on the ebay.  And it's getting to be a little overwhelming on the pocket book too, so I've decided to step back a ways and let the craziness of the newness of the releases subside and I'll start scooping up cards when I can.  But I did manage to get this little beauty for fairly cheap.
The best part about this Titanic Threads is that it's serial number is Rollies number.  The seller pointed that out, not that he got a premium on the card as I snagged this card by topping the minimum bid by 50 cents, but I figured if I was going to get one of these why not this one.  I had to take the card out of its holder and touch it the swatch too.  Nothing spectacular, but a nice addition to the collection.
Here's the back.

I also snagged a super low numbered TTT patch card this weekend, I can't wait till that shows up!!!!

cb out.
