They have old players on them.
They are small like those really, really old cards.
I can just hear the poor card shop clerk of the future sighing and pointing out the copyright date on the back to another non-card-collecting walk-in off the street. Presuming there still are card shops in the future.
I think there will be. There will always be enough people who want to shop in person, albeit never as many as there used to be.
These cards came from a card shop. Maybe. If an eBay vendor counts as a card shop, or the one that sent them to me happens to have an actual physical card shop somewhere, which is possible. It was real nice of them to add them to my package of 2013 parallels for no particular reason. Maybe the eBay vendor is a blogger too.
I also received a floating-head sticker:
I don't like wood paneling cards:
There's 38 more of those in my house already, before Andre showed up suspiciously close to the trade deadline, again via the eBay bonus route. The real ballplayer deadline. I will probably be trading baseball cards all year round now. I don't have a list of those 2012 minis, but I will one day. I will need some 2013 minis I am sure, whenever I find time to type in those lists.
In fact I will be on a mission to get rid of all the Wood Paneling I have. I am around wood all day at work, I've never been a fan of it on my baseball cards. So a miscellaneous lot of 2011 Heritage will get typed up with a list of minis, and I'll weigh up the shoebox of 87s to see how many pounds of cards are in it. About 3 I think.
Blah. Gypsy Queen, Floating Head stickers, and a Wood Panel card. Zero help to the Parallel Project. Unless you need them...
