Star Wars - are you even ready for more Rogue One?

You know...Real life sometimes is a total b*tch so I couldn't post sooner.

I know I was showing my Topps cards but meanwhile got more Star Wars cards and I'm almost completing the collection! I'm what...10 short of getting them all, I think.

The Girl Power in the original series and then in the prequel was there, by Leia and Padmé, but now in the sequel and spin-offs it is even more visible that Disney is betting high on it.

All for it!

One of my favourite is the transparent Krennic. Thsi guy gives me the chills...

Lots, and LOTS of K-2SO!

He's quite photogenic...

I can sooooooooo picture a new comic series about Director Krennic...

Topps 2016 - Team Cards

I don't know if Topps did this consciously or not, but this year there were lots of horizontal cards with great team moments.

Team cards were always there, but there are other player cards that can make it into Team Cards category too.

Cubs one. After 108 years they one. Here it is a great Cubs card. Because 2016 had some great moments.

Like I said, there are players cards that represent more of a team moment than only the player. I love these cards! Might as well start a new entry in my binder collections.

It seems these cards are almost all Pitchers cards with the Catcher. Which is a mini-team inside every team. They work good together. All the team works good together.

And to break a bit of the trend here is a Pitch card being saluted by teammates.

I don't know from which game this photo is. But I'll treasure it like the moment they won the WS.
(Which we'll get for sure in next year set as an highlight moment card)

Beltre is celebrating a hit? A run? I don't know, but the stadium in the background turns this card a precious thing.

Because ball players look like kids. Was this a walk-off moment?

Talking about WS highlight moments cards. Royals won! It took 2 consecutive WS but they actually did it!

And what a nice card!

And I walk-off from this post in great mood.

Topps 2016 - The Yankees

I got 6 Yankees. 4 Pitchers and 2 field players.

Here I got Betances and Chapman. Would I have get Miller and it would be like a Perfect Game.

It seems Severino is considered the Yankees' top prospect. I got his Rookie Card so lets see the next seasons.

I got to tell that he looks a bit like the next Sir.

CC Sabathia. Probably the Yankees' pitcher I have more cards of.

Refsnyder is an other Top Prospect and an other Rookie Card. And to counterweigh I also got McCann who is no longer a Yankee but an Astro. But he did good with Yankees.

I see many bloggers complaining about getting lots of Yankees. I really wish I would 'complain' about that too lol
