Cardboard Cameos: Something New and Shiny

Chris from The Collector clued me into this card even existing back in August of last year.  I was completely unaware of McCutchen appearing in a Giants uniform on a Dodgers card on a cardboard release the year that McCutchen played for the Phillies.  I am forever grateful that he pointed it out.

I am VERY SLOWLY trying to put this rainbow together.  I wanted to knock out my favorites first.

So I grabbed the pink and mini pink to use for my SaveSecondBase Event I do annually. 

I am now going after the Chrome Sapphire cards because that shine is amazing.
This is the orange parallel of 2019 Topps Sapphire numbered to 25 copies.

Thank you again Chris for pointing out this cameo.

Current needs for this card include
Flagship: base, black, fathers day blue, independence day, gold, Montgomery Club, vintage stock, platinum

Mini: Red, base

Sapphire: Superfractor, Red,

  1. When you realize that this actually an Austin Barnes card, look me up.

  2. What a cool shot in the background! Too bad he’s popping out (probably).

    1. He most certainly didn't pop out. I will reveal more about this card and the day this image was taken in a future post.

  3. This is an awesome card. I opened and went through a fair share of 2019 Topps Chrome (I really like this set), but was surprised that I didn't recognize this card. Then I looked at the card number and saw that it's part of the Update set (which I didn't open any packs of).

    1. P.S. Looking forward to reading about this particular at-bat. I really enjoy posts where people tell the story about what is going on in the card.

  4. I thought for sure Cutch was popping out, or at least hit a pop foul. Can't wait to see what actually happened - and I'm happy I could clue you into this card. The Orange parallel is a great looking card!

  5. I've been meaning to make sure you knew about this card. I just saw it for the first time a couple of weeks ago when I finally finished my 2019 dodger team set.
