I stumbled across an auction for one of the best parallels in recent years, and with the combination of Matt Kemp and a great price being involved, well, you know I just had to add another sweet card to my Bison PC.
Numbered 15/60 (one of those cross-sports 1/1s I'm so fond of), it's the first Hope Diamond that will find a permanent home in my collection. The card commemorates Matt and Andre Ethier each winning a Silver Slugger Award for their 2009 efforts. These Hope Diamond parallels are magnificent in-hand, and I'd highly recommend everybody pick one up immediately.
The blue works so well with Dodger Blue, as you might imagine. Absolutely stunning.
