Two All Stars And A Story

I haven't shown these cards on my blog now, and with opening day right around the corner, why not show 2 cards of 2 all stars? 

Daniel Murphy had another good year last year, hitting .289 in 143 games. Over a year ago(November 2013), I went to a card shop in New York, Alex's MVP Sports Cards, or something like that, and it was quite small. It was cramped with comic books, and boxes and boxes of baseball cards. A lot of the cards were expensive, like this one, but I really wanted this card. In the end, it came down to this, or my first hobby box, a box of 2013 Topps Chrome. In the end, I ended up going with the 2013 Topps Chrome hobby box, and I was sort of kicking myself about spending $75 on cards, which was the most I had ever spent on cards. Prior to that, the most I had ever spent was $25 for 20 pounds of baseball cards. Not bad huh? Somehow, my mom bought the card for me, snuck it out without me seeing it, and gave it to me as a Christmas present! From then on, I was hooked on collecting baseball cards. I honestly don't know what It was... ?

About 5 months later, I bought 2 packs of museum collection from my local hobby shop. It was a new product, but they still overcharged, and I ended up spending quite a bit. The first pack came with this card as a redemption, and the second card was a Brian McCann quad patch. Being a new Yankee, I was really happy with the McCann, and the Sale was just as good! The only thing about the relics, is that the pinstripe is green. I remember seeing something about this, being from some special game, but Sale didn't pitch that game...
Thank you for reading!
