No one likes Masterpieces as much as I. One thing that bothered me though was the use of parallels. Upper Deck in their infinite wisdom decided to put out two un numbered green framed parallel and two black parallel both /99. From more than a few inches away it is almost impossible to tell the difference. Reader Pop Cultured, not to be confused with Pop Startled, asked me what the difference is. Well, I listen to my readers so here we go.
Green: Two Matsuis seemingly the same.
close inspection shows the difference.
Note the textured finish on the frame to the right. That is the Linen version, whereas the non textured is the Windsor. After sorting my cards it appears the windsor are 2-1 more common.
Same with the Black
Even from this angle it is tough to see:
Linen on the right, Serious Black on the Left.
