A nice little trip down memory lane... I did really like Burl Ives and Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer as a kid.
But it has nothing to do with Cubs baseball cards.
Well, a little to do with Cubs baseball cards.
When I started my Darwin Barney player collection, I picked up these two autograph cards...
Both are from 2008 Just Minors The top is a silver dual autograph with Barney and Tyler Colvin. The card on the bottom is the gold version with signatures from Barney and Donald Veal. The silver card is /25 while the gold has just ten copies.
I never gave them a second thought until I saw an eBay listing for a gold version of the Colvin card. It was at a bargain price, so I pulled the trigger. Once I got it, the OCD in me said I had to get the silver version of the Veal card to be complete.
And here's a look at all of the silver and gold.
