A Few New Barneys

A couple recent pickups for the Barney collection:

2007 Just Minors Triple Signatures Gold....this features the autographs of three Cubs prospects.  Barney and Jake Fox both made it to the majors while Tony Thomas is still plugging away in the Red Sox system.

The card came looking like this...

.... in a thick Beckett slab.  You can see that it's not graded, but it is uncirculated.  Well, it's still uncirculated, but it's not in that slab anymore!


These will hold me over while I wait for my Gypsy Queen cards to arrive.  They are the blue and white frame parallels and the start of my GQ rainbow.  Others I'm hunting include the base, mini, mini black, mini green, and mini sepia.

My flagship rainbow grew by one with the addition of the Silver Slate Redemption card. These are /10 and mine in 7/10.  That makes 14 versions of this card, with #15 from the factory team set on the way.


  1. Nice pickups!

    That's a great photo they used on Tony Thomas.

  2. Good Pulls, you really love Darwin Barney lol. Love the cubbies blog btw even though I'm a Marlins fan I'm following, Check my blog out feel free to join the site if you like what you see.

  3. 15 different cards for one player?!?! DAAAAAAAAANG! Though, that would look sweet over a couple binder pages.

  4. Great cards!

    I'm really looking forward to my first Triple Signatures card, whatever it may be.
