All Kinds of Collecting Stupid!

OK OK… Different strokes for different folks, and all that! But c’mon!! When will the craziness end??

Some people have money to burn

I’ve mentioned in a previous post that I like the ‘Rally Squirrel’ SP Variant from 2012 Topps Series 1. It’s just a bit of irreverent fun designed to drive set builders and completists absolutely crazy 🙂

But this…? What the hell is this all about? I know some people may see this as a nice, rare collectable, while others will see it as a avoidable extension to the original set yet a genuine ‘must have’!

But come on!!!

$157.50… for a proof card… of a SQUIRREL?!?!?!

For around that kind of money you could have gotten hold of this, this or even this! Surely any of these would have been preferable to a picture of a f*%$!&g squirrel? I don’t care how bloody rare it is!!

The bit that always makes me smile is the fact that the photographer didn’t even capture the squirrel’s best side!

OK, rant over!! As I said, different strokes… But for me this is really taking collecting Baseball cards to a whole new extreme!

Happy T(r)ails!!

      Maybe they should have done the same thing with the bird that Randy Johnson killed.

      They should have issued a SP and called it ‘HBP Pidgeon’, or something!
