    I think we’re on a card

    I think my wife, Erin, and I are on a baseball card. We were at the game where Ronald Acuña hit his first major league homer on April 26 in Cincinnati, which I posted about at the time. We had great seats in the second row behind the Reds dugout on the 1st base line. We’re pretty sure that you can see us in the fuzzy background.

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    Did Topps give you royalties? I'd say that little snippet is worth about "tree fiddy"!

    It would be interesting to find the original image (presumably in the Getty Images catalog) and see if the fans in the background were sharper in the original image or if Topps fuzzed out the fans a little bit to keep the photo focus on Acuna rather than Acuna and the fans.

    HOARD IT!

    also, keep an eye out for the 5x7 when Topps puts it out
    What you collect is awesome, what i collect sucks.

    Thats awesome. My girlfriend and I ended up on Russel Martin's 2013 Topps Chrome card. I searched out all the parallels of it I could, but sadly missed the Superfractor. Make sure you get the 5x7s and 10x14s when Topps lists them for sale.
