Let me go on record and say that Topps Museum is my favorite release year in and year out. It's the perfect high end release. Last September, I showed off my Russell Martin bat nameplate 1/1 from last year's Museum release. That card was absolutely sick!
This might not be as sick, but it's damn close.
|2014 Topps Museum Laundry Tag Marlon Byrd 1/1|
That's a 1/1 laundry tag for a player who only appeared in 30 regular season games with the Pirates, but helped lead them to their first post season in 20 years.
Knowing how close Gregory Polanco was to the big leagues, I didn't want the Pirates to keep Byrd around for two more seasons, but would had loved to get him on a cheap one year deal. He moved onto greener pastures and more stability, signing with the Phillies for a 2 year/$16 million contract last November.
I hope this card was worth the wait for all you readers that come looking for the high end parts of my collection. Keep on reading and commenting and I'll keep writing.
