Commemorative Patches

I don’t get these things. Am I supposed to feel special about pulling a card featuring a patch which “was created exclusively form 2010 Topps Baseball Series 1”? I don’t.

Chase Utley is a fine player for a fine team. But I don’t collect Utley cards, nor do I collect Phillies. I noticed on the side of the box that Johnny Bench is also featured on one of these “Commemorative Patch” cards. There may be other Reds as well, but I didn’t read the list closely. So here’s the deal…

If you have the Bench (or another Red) and you want this Utley, send me an e-mail to jasontcarter at gmail. Or if you have something else that you think I might like (I collect Reds, Griffey Jr., Kurt Stillwell, and Shawon Dunston)…make me an offer.

Oh, and there are a ton more cards available for trade listed here (2010 Topps) and here (2010 Upper Deck). I’ve received a few Reds so far, no doubles yet, but won’t turn down doubles either (I’ve got two junior Reds fans here too).

  1. They are a basic insert, but at least topps comes out and says they were manufactured. I always worry about the authentic game worn cards that are pulled from packs or sold on ebay. The word authentic has no legal meaning. You may get a Johnny Bench game worn jersey card but who can say that is really true. Topps, Donruss, Upper Deck can say it is authentic but will can they swear under oath that it is what it purports to be.
