It's beautiful out today. I am mentioning it for posterity because it just might be the best weather day of the year. Then I can win some useless weather argument that always seems to spring up out of nowhere.
But I also want to mention it because even though I have to work today, it's a nice way to end the week. And to get in the spirit of things, after showing almost nothing but vintage all week (a result of both circumstance and mind-set), I am going to show some sparkly cards.
Joe M. is always good for some shiny items. This is part of the package that included the awesome Sandy Koufax Masterpieces box-topper. It's quite the shiny kick in the ass.
And to show how pleasant I am trying to be this Friday, I put a shiny Andruw Jones Heritage card at the top of the post. No Stay Puft Marshmallow Man jokes for me today. I'm high-roading it.
Shield your eyes. Shiny ahead.
But I'll start you off slow. It's an unshiny 2006 Bowman Heritage Chad Billingsley card, one of the few that I need to fill out the Dodger set. Joe has provided me with quite a few of these cards, including the shiny version of the Billingsley.
