Golden Sunday's at the ballpark

2005 Topps
Gold Border Parallel
215 Aaron Harang
0066 / 2005

Found: Sportslots

Cheese Out the Fridge: .38 ounces

Nice card we got here. Aaron ready to lob a two seemer for warmup. The alternate Sunday hat. The neatly coiffed never ending sideburn.
The glove FROM THE YEAR 2000!
The card back gives us a glimpse of what make Cardinals wet their pants with that fastball comin atcha!
These gold bordered cards from Topps have changed over the years. The farther we get from 2001's original gold border cards the darker they get. Why?

Another Color of the Rainbow

No. 49 Aaron Harang
Beige Autograph Card
06 /25

Found: eCrackBay

Cheese Out the Fridge: 5.50 Lbs

This is just the second of the 31 parallels I know of that I am gunning for. A sticker autograph on the card is not really bad. Not the best design for signing.
Seriously. This card has 31 parallels. That is excessive even by Donruss standards. Luckily there are no 1/1's in the set and I have pilfered the under / 10 so it should be smooth sailing to the end.
Just like Harang punching the round trip ticket for a dugout walk for any Diamondback he faces this season. Just the way it should be.
