Haven't had much time for anything this week, and certainly not for a post that requires more than 5 minutes worth of time. So, in lieu of a long post with many scans I'm just going to post a card that's been sitting in draft format for a couple of months anyway. It's as good a time as any to post it, given the subject's absolute demolition of Texas Rangers' pitchers the last couple of days.
Throughout the season I've been trying to add some unique Gonzalez cards to my Red Sox collection. His 2011 Allen & Ginter auto may not be in my price range, but there are still some nice cards to be found at a decent price. The 2011 Topps base set is my favorite out of the 5 released since I got back into collecting, and these black parallels look really nice. This card is somewhat scarce being numbered to just 60, yet still affordable at just $6.50 ($9 if you include shipping).
Heading into tonight's action in Arlington, Adrian's on the verge of the 100 RBI mark, to go along with a .347 batting average, 21 home runs and 38 doubles. MVP?
