It's A Triple Russ Martin Rainbow! 1/1s All Across The Sky!

First it was a Matt Kemp printing plate. So, due to the fact that I had some money to play with from my first handful of YardBarker payments, I figured I may as well shoot high. This is what I came away with (the plate on the far right of the first picture was purchased with non-YB money).

First up, my favorite of the bunch. 2008 Topps Stadium Club Yellow Plate.

This goes nicely with the Blank Back 1/1 of this card I recently posted. I picked them up in a lot from the same seller. $20 shipped.

Next up is the Magenta Plate from 2009 Topps Baseball Series 2:

Both of these cards feature absolutely fantastic photography with two plays at the plate. Once again, I'm hard-pressed to find a bad card of Russ, aesthetically speaking.

Finally, a second Yellow Plate, this time from 2009 Topps Finest.


  1. Nice pick ups! Oh, and Russell is awesome.

  2. Thanks! And thanks for reminding me, as I sit here and watch Rod Barajas and soon, Dioner Navarro.

    Way to rub it in.

  4. Thanks Charles! Martin has been quite good. Wish we still had him.
