A Primary Piece of Matt Kemp's Lumber Pried From A Museum.

Nothing like starting the week off with a new addition to my Matt Kemp PC. The moment I saw this card existed, I knew I wanted it, but prices were way too high. They eventually dropped, as they almost always do, and this beauty now resides in my collection.

Numbered 97/99, it's a sweet quad relic from 2012 Topps Museum Collection that also features Prince Fielder, Brian McCann, and Aramis Ramirez. It's my first relic for each of those three gentlemen. An interesting quartet, to say the least, and I don't exactly know why they were included together. I also don't care, as The Bison is the sole attraction of the card in my eyes. This card also comes in a "Kemp jersey swatch variation," but I was after the bat version, so it's a most welcome addition for what was a very, very, very good price.

Dutch and DB- Thanks!

Rhubarb- I'll hit you up at some point! If you could set the Bowman Blue Kemp and Gold Jansen aside for me, that would be swell.
