Dee Gordon's eTopps Cards

I'm almost embarrassed to say that I was an early adopter of the eTopps concept way back in 2001. Yhea, it was during the height of online stock trading and the idea of transferring that excitement to cards was very appealing at the time. So, I jumped on the bus and rode it well past the day when the stock market and the eTopps market crashed into a glorious pile of dung. Man... I should have sold out long ago, but I just couldn't pull that trigger. Now, at my advancing age, where I reconcile with the past as an important part of livin' and learnin', I have only a handful of eTopps cards "in hand" in my personal collection and a deep understanding that investing in cards is better left for gamblers. I'm a collector of Baseball, and I should never confuse the two.

Anyway, eTopps, surprisingly, still exist and they just released a card for our newest rookie sensation- Dee Gordon. Check it out below. I really don't want to go too much into the details of how this product works, so just go to their website here. Also, I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have. I would suggest, though, that you forgo ordering these cards as a "pre-IPO" (so to speak), and wait for them to be available for sale on the eBay marketplace.
Also, apparently eTopps had previously released a Dee Gordon card in 2010 when he was a member of the Great Lake Loons. Check it out below. BTW, these cards can be purchased on eBay for much less than the original "IPO" price.
