Show and Tell #123: Mini Hiatus

I received these and many other minis from Tony L. from Off Hiatus Baseball who along with Dayf and I make up the Atlanta Card Blogging Triumvirat...or ACBT for short. Tony took of a bunch of cards of my 2013 Topps 1972 minis insert needs list and rumors are there might be more to come. 

My favorite of the minis are the veteran cards that never were in the original set.

I hope Altuve becomes this generation's Ichiro with consistent 200+ hit seasons and .325+ average. And plus how great are the Astro's uniforms now.

Along with the 1972 minis Tony sent me some 2014 Topps Mini including my homeboy from Wisconsin Jordan Zimmermann [don't forget that second "N"].

He also sent me my first Phil Hughes as a Twins card. Hughes fell short of getting his contract bonus but he had a pretty remarkable season for the last place Twins.

Thanks again for the trade Tony and I'll part ways with some of my Brewers in return.
