Egads. eTopps David Wright baseball card quandary.

Well, perhaps I'm weakening, but this is a pretty nice card of David Wright. If these baseball cards were not entombed in plastic, I'd seriously consider getting one for Lucy's birthday. The quantity: 799. On sale until May 5 for $6.50. I don't entirely understand the concept of eTopps portfolios and buying cards you can't actually touch without a jaws of life and a blowtorch handy. The two most suspicious lines on the eTopps site are "track their value in your portfolio" and "sell them on eBay." Last on the list is "get them delivered." Does anyone collect these? Perhaps a better question is, does anyone amass these in a distant portfolio? But anyway, this is a nice David.

I've never bothered to figure out how eTopps works... but that is a really nice looking David Wright card. Maybe I should...

I don't mess around much with eTopps. If you wait a little while, keep an eye out for eBay auctions offering the card 'in hand' and snag one there.

Then you actually get the card. They look great in person.

I have bought several and had them delivered. Getting them out of the case was a snap, just peel the seal and you're in. They are nice cards.

Just remember that it does cost extra to have them delivered. And the card probably won't be ready to ship until mid-summer.

But all the eTopps I've had delivered are absolutely stunning. I normally pick up the players and special cards that capture my attention and have a shipment every year or so.
