Got more Anrew

Last Wednesday I posted about getting my Topps Now Road to Opening Day Phillies team set and inside I had gotten a red Zack Wheeler parallel numbered to 10 copies as my exclusive parallel.  You can revisit that post here.  I was a bit disappointed that I had also gotten an Anrew McCutchen card instead of an Andrew McCutchen card.  I can understand spelling his last name wrong as only 2 players in MLB history have had the last name McCutchen (coincidently they were Pirates teammates), but Anrew isn't a real word or name so how did something like that get by Topps Quality Control.

Fortunately Topps spelled the name correctly on the back. 
Well, like Topps I must have made an error because I actually ordered two sets.  I didn't even know I did this, but sure enough a week apart from my initial order I placed an order for a second team set when buying some Project 2020 cards.

And oddly enough it showed up a few days later than the first set.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that I got a blue parallel of my main collection player's alter ego, Anrew(?) McCutchen.
Speaking of alter egos...
Something awesome is coming my way very soon and it will definitely achieve the "something nice to hang on walls" want list item.


  1. That's great that you got the base and the parallel. Or should I call it a parllel?

  2. Anrew! That's classic! Way to pay attention, Topps.

  3. Can't wait to see the comic book cover.
