A Couple Disappointing Museum Extras

After picking up a few base museum cards for the player collections, I found a couple more I liked.

 This is the blue version of Ernie Banks' base card.  You can see that its /99.  I wanted the blue version because I thought that the blue would go nicely with the home uniform that Mr. Cub is wearing.  When I got the card I was a little disappointed because the blue of the card is quite small, just the frame filled in.


Here's the base and blue side by side...not the dramatic difference I was hoping for.

The second Museum card I added was this...

....Billy Williams autograph.  Billy didn't make the base set, but he did make it into the autograph set.  It's a nice looking, on card autograph, and I'm happy about that.  Yet I'm also disappointed.

How can I be disappointed with an autographed card of my all time favorite player??  More on that tomorrow.

  1. Let me guess.... Is it because Topps uses the same pictures over and over and over? If not, then I am confused haha
