Sparkle cards look just like the base but have one sparkle somewhere on them, they're pretty rare and hard to notice. Neither Helms nor Neftali Feliz have a sparkle card so I think you're thinking of the diamond parallel

yea, after I posted I looked at a Topps site and saw the difference. Had heard a lot about sparkle so I just assumed that was it when I pulled it. Thanks for the help

welcome to the site, too. Your bowman packs were pretty good getting the green and blue cards in 2 packs

I had the same thing happen with a guy the other day when I was in the LCS. He came in with about 10-12 of the diamond anniversary cards and said he'd like to sell them. When the owner asked, he told them an amount and the owner was like yea right. Well, the guy said they were the sparkles and that's why he wanted so much.

The owner told him they were not the sparkles, but only the diamond anniversary cards. He said he took them to another dealer and that other dealer confirmed to him they were the sparkles, so this LCS owner didn't know what he was talking about.

I can assure you I will put up no such fight, as I realized they weren't sparkles about 30 seconds after I posted.


Thanks for the welcome, it was fun busting packs again.
