Today was a joyous day. I received not one, but two redeemed auto cards from Topps! Evan Longoria and Jay Bruce.
Evan Longoria came from a December 15th box break: Topps Hobby Box (Longoria).
Jay Bruce came from a a December 23rd box break: Topps Hobby Box (Bruce).
Mighty fast turn around I'd say.
The 2008 Red Hot Rookies must be about the best looking cards in the history of the universe.
The card does seem dramatically curved. I've taken some shots at an angle to better illustrate:
So here are my questions to you folks out there in the card collecting world: Is this card curved to the point that I should be worried? Is this curve a common thing for these cards?
I don't have much experience with redemption cards and none with Red Hot Rooke cards. I'm very happy with it but don't want to make a mistake if this curve thing should be addressed.
The Jay Bruce card isn't curved much so I know not all of these cards come this way.
Any advice or feedback on this is much appreciated.
