I picked up this 2013 Topps Update Ryan Roberts Yellow Printing Plate off eBay on Thursday and had it in my mailbox on Friday. I bought it at like 5:30 am and the seller lives about 20 minutes from me, but I still thought it was cool that I got it the very next day.
I have a very nice Ryan Roberts collection, but it's mostly with him as a Diamondback. I have most of his Blue Jays cards, but that's because there are only a handful. Since signing with the Rays he's only had a couple of cards; 2012 Topps Update and some Panini cards. When I saw this Printing Plate I hesitated a little bit. Should I just focus on his cards as a Diamondback? The card was listed for a little more than I would have liked, but it was a Buy-It-Now and in the end I didn't want to miss out and have someone else buy it. So now it's mine. This is my 9th Ryan Roberts Printing Plate.
