About a month ago I posted about the SP cards Topps releases that are parallels to the regular base cards. We had a variety of opinions in the comments and I expressed my mixed interest depending on the theme/topic of the SP. When the checklist came out for 2015, the Giants had 4 base parallel SPs listed, 3 Sparkle Parallels (Bumgarner, Pence and Posey) and 1 parallel to Bumgarners base card - Bumgarner Batting.
I quickly decided that if the Sparkles fell into my hands, great, but the only card I wanted to pursue, assuming a reasonable price, was the Bumgarner Batting parallel. For about $8 delivered from a Sportlots auction, I was able to secure this:
This is an SP card I am very happy Topps produced and even more happy I have in my collection.
