Upgrading A Barney

Every now and then I'll upgrade a card in my Darwin Barney collection.  I recently added this card to the collection.

It's the Artist Proof version of the 2013 Pinnacle Autograph.

This is the card it replaced.

And the reason for the upgrade?

You really have to squint to find it and you really have to know Darwin Barney.

The upgraded card is #15/25.  Darwin Barney wore #15 with the Cubs.  Some sellers charge a premium when the serial number and player's number match.  This seller didn't so I was able to pick it up for three whole dollars.


  1. That's a great upgrade at a wonderful price. Good eye!

  2. Awesome upgrade. I love collecting serial numbered cards that feature the player's jersey number.
