2014 Mike Schmidt Cards

According to, there were only 259 Mike Schmidt cards issued in 2014. That's down a little from 308 in 2013. Most of these cards are either parallel cards to cards I actually acquired or serial-numbered limited edition relic and/or autographed cards, which I'm never going to be able to afford. I managed to get 10 Mike Schmidt cards pretty much representing the available base cards and some parallels. This brings my Schmidt collection to 387 cards.

2014 Panini Prizm #153
Panini's answer to Topps Chrome. Not a set I care much about. I paid $3 on eBay.

2014 Panini Prizm Prizms Camo #153
A parallel to the above card. I paid $3.75 on eBay. What is it with camo on baseball uniforms?

2014 Panini Prizm Prizms Red White and Blue Pulsar #153
I only bought three packs of Panini Prizm and managed to pull this from one of them. The fanciest of the parallels and I got it for $0.72. One of only 2 Schmidt cards this year I got in a pack.

2014 Topps Before They Were Great #20
 An insert in Topps. $3.98 on eBay

2014 Topps 1989 Topps Die Cut Minis #16
I pulled a lot more of these than I wanted but had to spend $2 on eBay to get the only one I really wanted.

2014 Topps Archives #143
I'm getting kind of tired of Topps Archives so I only bought one blaster this year. Found this in eBay for $3.98.

2014 Topps Allen & Ginter #150
$1.98 on eBay. I'm not sure why I ended up paying more for the Archives card than for the A&G card. I need to find a mini.

2014 Topps Heritage Clubhouse Collection Relic

The only Schmidt relic card I got from 2014. $8.98 on eBay.

2014 Topps Gypsy Queen #116
I'm also getting a bit tired of Gypsy Queen and didn't buy much. I got the entire 10-card Phillies set for $0.36/card on eBay. That's about what the cards in a blaster cost.

2014 Topps Gypsy Queen Framed White #116
The easiest of the Gypsy Queen parallels to get, I paid $1.98 on eBay.

2014 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions Goudey #8
I bought 2 blasters of Goodwin Champions but found this on eBay for $3.99.
