Golden Riefenhauser

I have really enjoyed watching C.J. Riefenhasuer pitch the last year in Durham.  The left handed relief pitcher has been great in the high minor over the past year and managed to even make an appearance in the Futures Game last year at the All-Star break.  Appearing in the Futures Game means an almost certain appearance in the Bowman Draft set as a relic card and also in the next year's Pro Debut set.  A year after appearing in the Futures Game Riefenhauser has already appeared in the Bowman Draft set as a relic card and now....



A relic card in the Pro Debut set.  Topps cannot let a jersey hangout as a leftover.  This card is a gold parallel of the base relic and is serial numbered out of 50.  In fact this card is 50/50, not that I am into the Ebay 1/1 thing.  I am hoping that Riefenhauser might make an All-Star Game appearance this year again, but he has been hopping back an forth between Durham and Tampa.  His time in Tampa has been a little bit rough so far, but his time in the Majors has been pretty rough.  There was a good outing or two....
