Cards from Martyn

A few weeks ago I participated in a break with Martyn from Arbitrary Crap. In Fact there's been two breaks in the last few weeks with another one planned very shortly.

I've already shown what I got in the breaks of Topps Opening Day and Topps Series 2 but I haven't shown what else Martyn sent my way.

Firstly is this Topps Pristine Bobby Thomson numbered out of 549. This is probably the first card to hit my Thompson PC this year. I've been very neglectful picking up his cards since all the focus has been on Adam Lind. The only card that I actively search of Thompson is his Bowman RC from the forties. I haven't found one yet at a price that I like but the search will continue.

This is a card that I was very excited to see. This is my first and only Sterling card in my collection. As you can see from the front of the card its numbered 24/50. The scan does not do this card justice, it really is beautiful and you can just tell this is from a 'premium' product.

Huge thanks Martyn, I do have a few cards to send your way but I'm sure you've known me long enough to know that I can take a little while to get cards in the post!!
