Byrd is the Word: 1 of 1 Laundry Tag

I haven't been updating the site with a lot of high end stuff over the past few weeks.  I know that you have all probably started to get sick of all the Charlie Morton and Tony Sanchez parallels that I've been showing off.  I'm going to mix it up and show off my latest 1/1 laundry tag of a former Pirate.

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.


  1. Glad you got that one. I remember seeing it online, but didn't bid because I think it was around the time I got the octo patch.

  2. Great laundry tag. I have one in my Tino Martinez PC and it's a treasured card to me. Congrats on your pick up.

  3. Wow. That's definitely museum quality.

  4. That's some dirty laundry right there.
