Dares Gold In Dem Dar Cards!

I received in the mail today a few packs I shall be sharing over the next few days. This card was purchased from Gary Walter Cards from an ad in SCD Weekly. It was 6.95 plus 2 for s/h. That is less than on ebay these days.

2008 Topps
50th Anniversary All-Star Rookie Team Gold
No. AR36 58 / 99

I really like this card. The card is solid. Not like modern cardboard. The front is smooth and kind of like the old Stadium Club Winners Cards. You can actually scratch into the metal front if you had a Mets rookie. Just sayin.
This card remind us of the potential Austin had in the Reds outfield. In 107 games he batted .315 / 66 runs / 13 HR / 56 RBI and was third in 2002 N.L. ROY balloting.
