A Little Birthday Treat

My birthday was earlier this week, and in addition to the wonderful evening and gift provided by my wife, I bought myself a little something to celebrate:

2009 Topps #TC1 Ty Cobb Stamp (#/95)

Ok, I didn't buy this as a birthday gift--I bought it because it is #2 on my "Big Ten Wantlist" and I hadn't seen one of these cards listed in over a year. I just so happened to have won it on my Birthday.

Anyway, it arrived yesterday, and while it's not quite as awesome as this card from the same year, it is a very cool concept that I like a lot.

Here's the back:


What can I say? I'm not a stamp collector, but these are well executed, attractive cards. Note to Topps: more of this kind of thing, please.
