Prompt work by both the seller and the post office have given me the chance to finally hold a 2014 Topps Darwin Barney clear acetate card.
The cards a bit thicker than I was anticipating. I was thinking it would be on a more flimsy acetate, kinda like the film used on an overhead projector. But it isn't flimsy at all. It plenty sturdy,
I was also a bit unsure on the scanning process...so I scanned it twice.
This was done with the scanner top open, so I get a nice black background.
The second can was with a white background. This looks almost like a regular card. I'm going to keep the black background scan for my files.
The back of the card also was a curiosity for me. I knew that it couldn't have a regular card back because of the clear parts. So..
...this is the back with a black background and this....
...is what it looks like with a white background.
The back gives us a left handed version of Darwin Barney. I would have really loved seeing this when I was a kid because in little league I was a left handed second baseman.
The card is my 26th version of the 2014 Topps Darwin Barney and most likely is my last. I'll have something on all 26 cards tomorrow.
