Pull the Trigger 9.11 ($25)

Some shiny baubles up next.

2011 Topps #522 Asdrubal Cabrera Diamond Sparkle

Looks like some incomplete foil around the baseball circle at the bottom. Makes it a collector's item, right?

The sparkly precious can be yours for $25, along with everything else you see here.

Pull the Trigger 9.10 ($25)

Let's add some tats to the pile.

Lot of 5 2005 Topps Bazooka Tattoos

These tattoos apparently are outlines of actual MLB players, but the backs are unnumbered, so it's not all that easy to figure out who's who. "High Leg Kick Guy" is probably Dontrelle Willis, but the rest are pretty nondescript.

If you want some ink, roll up your sleeve, it's $25.

Pull the Trigger 9.9 ($25)

This next addition to the pile is probably baseball's smartest man.

Yale.
MCAT.
Med school deferred.
Smart motherfucker.
Mad respect.

You want his autograph, twenty-five bucks, pal.

Pull the Trigger 9.8 ($25)

We're going old-school again tonight.

1978 Topps #310 Don Sutton

Like the Fingers card previous to this one, the Sutton is not in the best shape. There's an odd mark and some discoloration around his eye. Maybe it's his after-hours '70s Bowie look or something.

If you want a lad insane, get $25 ready, and receive everything below.

Pull the Trigger 9.7 ($25)

Let's just file this newest addition under "Rode Hard, Put Away Wet."

1977 Topps #523 Rollie Fingers (POOR)

Make no mistake, this Rollie has seen better days. If you decide to bid right now, you're getting a card with Scotch tape on two (oops, make that three) edges. There's probably a story there, but it might never be told. Own a piece of history.

Pull the Trigger 9.6 ($25)

How about a fairly low-numbered card for the pile?

2013 Topps #604 Rafael Betancourt Pink Parallel (11/50)

As Topps continues to experiment with different colored parallels with each new set, there are the occasional happy accidents to go along with insert/parallel bloat. I have to say that the purple of the Colorado Rockies goes great with the pink border here. The overall presentation reminded me of this old blog post I remember reading where this woman gave Optimus Prime a makeover using various shades of nail polish.

I you like-a the pink-a and the purple-a, then pulla the trigga. Twenty-five dollars takes the whole pile.
