Diamond Sparkle...

After hearing the buzz abous the short-printed Diamond Sparkle variants in 2011 Topps, I went back through the stack of cards I got at Wal Mart the other day. I wasn't sure what to look for, so I checked out some of the scans on eBay.

Wow! Some of the variations are tough to see! The "diamond sparkle" could be anywhere! On helmets, hands, wrists, belt buckles, a dotted "i" on uniforms; those rascals are elusive! I searched through my large stack of cards, and low and behold I found one! You have to look REALLY closely to see it. I included a standard card on the right for comparison.

I couldn't find another one on eBay, so I think I can make a mint!

It is amazing where they put those "jewels"!

I really don't want to know what Blanton was thinking at that moment.
