This year's Allen & Ginter included a couple of soccer players, which a European guy like me thinks is very very cool. Of course, most of you Americans will look at me funny but do note that Soccer is the largest sport globally and the soccer world cup final very likely beats the Superbowl in terms of viewers. One of the players was Holland's key striker, Robin van Persie !! He plays for Manchester United on a daily basis and has been the striker for the Dutch team for years now. So since the summer I have been chasing his auto framed mini, first few were for way above $100 dollars but they have been steadily coming down in recent months, coming down enough to take the bait and get a great one for my collection !! Here it is !!!
Next step, the Pele one, although that one will likely stay out of my price range for the next few years ! How about you guys, anyone chasing soccer players ?
