Sometimes I pick up a card and it's more because of the card itself than the player depicted on the card. Usually it's because the card has a cool gimmick or some kind of novelty value, but the relevant checklist either doesn't have one of my PC players on it or my PC players' cards are prohibitively expensive / not readily available.
This was one of those cards for me. I don't collect Kennys Vargas, but I thought these Coin and Stamp cards from 2015 Topps were pretty cool. I don't remember exactly how I came across this card, but I was searching for something else and saw this one listed at a price that seemed pretty low. I put in a bid to see what would happen. It helped that the auction description was extremely spare, featuring the card number and player name without much other information. I thought maybe a player collector would find the card and outbid me, but it never happened. This is a 2015 Topps Series 2 Birth Year Coin and Stamp card of Twins prospect Kennys Vargas. I don't know if he's still considered a prospect because he's got 111 MLB games under his belt over two seasons, but I don't know what else to call him.
Here's the back of the card. While the stamp is in a little picture-box window, the coin is encapsulated in a little plastic holder so you can't actually touch it. With each of these cards being serially-numbered to 50 copies, I wonder how many hours Topps' employees spent sorting through piles of loose change to find coins from specific years? This one is # 22 / 50 for Vargas. There are other version featuring other coins (quarters, nickels, and pennies) as well as a truncated autograph checklist with embedded quarters and stamps. I probably won't be chasing anything else from this set, as I just wanted the one card as an example for my collection.
