The last few days brought a few very cool things into my collection. The first is a 1980 Topps Francisco Barrios that helped me complete the 1980 team set. It's one of the few 1980T signed Barrios cards that I have seen, and by far the nicest IMO (there's a pic of it in the pics section). Mickey at Mickey's Clubhouse hooked me up with that one... So with 1980 Topps now complete, that's like 3 out of 52 Topps team sets...still a very long way to go!
The next is one of my favorite, if not my favorite card of all-time...a 1990 Topps signed Frank Thomas card with his whole complete signature from back in the day (it's Beckett/JSA certified if that means anything, lol). It's pretty much just a cursive F and T nowadays, so I was very stoked to get this one. The signature is in pen, but I'm not too worried about that!!! I have been watching the card on eBay for a few months and thought now is the time to pop on it!
