Chasing the Dream
I have been in the “anti-foil on baseball cards” camp for a long time, and I still am, but there are always exceptions. Topps produced an insert for the 2013 set called “Chasing the Dream,” and I have to say that the cards look phenomenal and probably would not be so awesome if they didn’t have foil.
Thanks to Crackin Wax, I now own the 2013 Topps “Chasing the Dream” Devin Mesoraco card. This young catcher will not erase Johnny Bench from the minds of Cincinnati Reds fans, but he has displayed a lot of intensity on the field, and with a little seasoning could turn into a very solid backstop.
