Can't complain about either of those two guys. Very tradable I do believe. Maybe I can get the Nolan Ryan version if there is one. In fact, I've posted a trade Rivera for Nolan, we'll see what happens... I don't foresee getting more code cards, and there aren't any Astros "unlocked" currently, although I doubt there are any in this set, as our team currently sucks.
As for the three hits in my hobby jumbo box, they will have to wait... you need to see another card I picked up... for just $5.00... it was one of the "big" cards I still needed for 1978 Topps...
And for the manufactured relic....
Things Are Funner Here claimed the Hamels, she may not be too far behind in claiming the Schmidt... ;)
So, you know those hobby shop redemption cards... well so far my shop owner has 5 of the 10 cards that are part of the program... he gave me 3 sets of what he has to give away on my blog... so since this is so far down in the post, I'm guessing many of you who just look at the pictures wont read it, so I'll hide a giveaway... I'm going to give away the three sets, one each to the first three commenters who answer this question correctly: How many no-hitters did Nolan Ryan throw? If you comment, please make sure I have a means of getting a hold of you via e-mail. ***UPDATE: I HAVE THREE WINNERS, THANKS EVERYONE***
