It's not easy being green...

I have to admit, I'm a huge fan of the emerald parallels out of 2013 Topps.
The fact that there are 18 Cardinals (until S2 and US), also appealed to me. I don't know why, but how cards are going to lay out on a page really influences how I may or may not try to complete a
base/insert/parallel set. 
So, here is my latest pick up:
 This is the photo from the eBay sale, if you are in any way familiar with my inability to scan multiple cards at one time, you understand.

Currently, I am 3 cards away from completing the (S1) set:
188 Brian Fuentes
235 Jake Westbrook
305 Shelby Miller

On a sidebar: Why is Brian Fuentes in this set? He was a member of the organization for around a month, and wasn't a notable contributor. I'm sure there's something in his contract with Topps that obligated them to include him, but I think there are some better choices out there.

Minus my almost-set, here are the extras I have for trade:
4 Molina x2
50 Wainright
125 Holliday (Wild Card)
130 Motte
193 M. Carpenter
207 Holliday
224 Jay
261 Rosenthal
269 Cardinals x2
321 Craig

I've got trade night in a few weeks and I've got a spot in a case break coming up, so hopefully I'll be able to increase posting frequency!

Staying unabashed and interested,
