Let’s Go Streaking! 8 Months Later, Manny Machado has arrived …

Three quarters of a year ago, I ran to my local card shop and purchased the latest and greatest product: 2011 Bowman Platinum.

Hot off the heels of the Bowman (with Bowman Chrome) release, the Platinum product offered signatures of the biggest up-and-coming prospects including Wonderboy Bryce Harper.

Well, there was no Harper auto in my box.  But there was a redemption card for a Manny Machado.

Yep, a redemption.

Well, 8 months later it has arrived … with a streaky autograph.


**Addendum:  Both of these issues are Machado’s fault, NOT Topps.
