14,000 Phillies Commentary: First and foremost, I love the fact that Topps’s lawyers felt it necessary to include the “OFFERS ON REPRINTS ARE NOT VALID” statement at the bottom of the back. I realize that they need to protect themselves from the crazies, but would anyone in their right mind really think that they were offering rings again, the rings cost just 15 cents, and the offer expired in 2049? Second, I did at one time actually own an Ashburn rookie card. However, some incredibly tight finances roughly 10 years ago necessitated my selling it and I still haven’t been able to replace it. Hopefully, that will one day change, but it’s incredibly likely this is as close as I get to owning the Ashburn rookie card for a long time.
