CC: A Slight Improvement

If this card looks familiar to you, don't worry, you're not seeing things. A while ago I picked up a more basic version of this card.
2009 Topps Sterling "One-Hitter 8/31/08" (3x Patch on Gray Jersey) #3CCR-81 (01/10)

As you can see, the #/10 edition offers a more intricate patch and a smoother finish. In terms you might be better able to relate to, the #/25 card is a fine imported beer, whereas today's card is Guinness. They're the same, but still miles apart.

This card also has an autographed version (numbered to 10 copies) that I saw on eBay just once. The price was unreasonably high, and it went unsold. Since then, the seller has not listed it again. Motherless swine.
