A Pair From Sportlots: First Pitch and Name Niche


This pair of cards is an oddball combo whose only connection is the Sportlots seller I got them from. Both cards I got for the opening auction bid of 25¢ plus the shipping ($2 for first card 40¢ each additional card = $2.40).

The first card is from 2016 Topps Baseball from the First Pitch insert set: Card number FP-17 Carrie Brownstein Seattle Mariners a musician/actress. If my overall collection was organized I would know how many more cards I need from this insert set. All I know is I have the 2015 First Pitch inserts (I think it is complete maybe I just have series 1) and who knows how many 2016s. I do enjoy this insert set. I think 2015 was the first year they had the insert set and I think they only did it for 2015, 2016, and 2017. OH and there is a 2020 Topps Now First Pitch card for Dr. Anthony Fauchi I probably should try to get that one for cheap, but right now it is super overinflated listing prices.

The second card of this pair I got simply for my "Name Niche" Collection. It probably should have been posted it separate for my Niche PC post series. If not for the guy's first name being similar to mine I might not collect any of his cards. He does play on the Carolina Panthers and there have been times that I have favored that team. I have a soft spot for expansion teams from time to time. Any how the card is 2017 Score Football: NFL Draft Insert #12 Curtis Samuel Ohio State Buckeyes.
