Matt has become my favorite Tigers pitcher now, as Justin Verlander has gone onto Houston, and starting with tomorrow's card show here in Kalamazoo, I'm going to try and acquire every version of Matt's #82 Topps Update card...and as many Boyd cards as possible.
According to Beckett that means 10 cards...
Rainbow Foil ( 1 in 10 packs)
Father's Day (#/ 50)
Mother's Day (#/50)
Memorial Day (#25)
Printing Plates (1/1)
The last 2 issues will be a most daunting task... the 1/1 cards will obviously be very hard to find...but I'm going to give it my best shot.
I have limited income, so I may have trade for the card..and that will be awesome as well...the BLACK variation is already on ebay.com for $9.99... and I hope that when I can get it it's around that price.
Matt is kind of special to me, as my middle name is Boyd.
So, if you buy, or have bought, the Topps Update cards, and come across a Matt Boyd variation, I hope you'll think of me I any impending trades or sales...thanks in advance.
