And so it begins. Last Wednesday saw the release of the 2014 Topps Series 1 cards. Card number 58 is none other than Dan Straily. Dan is my favorite current Oakland Athletic. I was fortunate enough to watch him pitch during the 2011 season when he was with the Stockton Ports. Back then he was a good pitcher and I told my wife numerous times that Dan was going to make it to the Oakland Athletics. As a person Dan is a great guy, he always took time for the fans and I had the opportunity to get to know him a little better.
So here is my first card for the 2014 Topps Rainbow Project for Dan Straily. This is the Green parallel that is found only in retail rack packs.
I picked up this card relatively cheap on eBay. Over the coming weeks I will be acquiring more of the Straily variations and I will posts those cards here so stay tuned.
