Cards from the Drew's Cards giveaway

I got my cards yesterday from the Drew's Cards giveaway. He is giving away free cards and still has some left (Indians, Royals, A's). I got the Astros in the giveaway - I am keeping what I need and passing the rest to Bru as part of his trade-a-thon package. Here are some highlights:

I like the angel-and-devil-on-the-shoulders aspect of this card. Especially the guy on the right just jumping in the air, I can picture him saying "Wheee!"
 You can't tell from the picture but this is a really neat 3-D card. It is from a 2010 Topps insert set called Topps 2020, in which Topps picked players they thought could still be with the same team in 2020. The Astros traded Pence the next year, but halfway through the decade several players are still on the path to being with their teams in 2020 - Braun, Howard, Posey, Bumgardner, Longoria, Mauer, McCutchen, Wright and Kershaw.
 Nice leaping catch by a guy not really known for his athleticism.
Thanks Drew!
