So I'm going to Paris in about a month and a half. Wife wanted to do something over my school's Spring Break, and found some (relatively) cheap plane tickets, and now that's happening. I'm pumped - I've been to Europe once as a 23 year old (Scotland, London, and various parts of Italy over a month) and loved every minute of it. Paris should be cool, especially the Musee d'Orsay, and we might day trip to Brugges, which would be amazing because then I can pretend to walk a mile in Colin Farrell's shoes.
So the title of this post kind of has two purposes. One is the above Paris mention - the other is that all these cards are Crown Royale parallels from my most recent COMC purchase. So let's check 'em out!
Occasionally these parallels are non-numbered, but still die cut. Such is the case with two Shyrone Stith needs I picked up, which are the base and then the retail parallel:
I grabbed two 2010 Crowns from several years later too. These are both blue parallels /100:
I also just noticed after adding the images that Brown's card is differentiated with that little rookie banner around the 49ers logo. That's a cool minor detail, I like the way it looks.
On next to a few /99 editions of some Crowns. Both are B.J. Daniels, with one being a holofoil gold and one being a red:
I guess this post is all about matching team colors, because my 2nd to last Crown is a J.R. Redmond blue parallel /75:
If you've been paying attention, you've probably noticed that these cards are working their ways down in terms of rarity. So of course the last is the rarest - A Thaddeus Lewis gold parallel #'d 25/25 - always a neat bonus when the card is the final one of a print run:
