Update Backdate?

My interest in buying any new baseball product lately is very low.  The 2014 Topps Update cards I've seen posted lately have not done anything to change my mind.  I do however have my pack stash and guess what?  I had two packs of 2013 Update.

I guess Roberto counts as a bonus card since I came out with 25 cards.  I didn't notice till I had them all scanned.  Clemente is also the best card in the group.

I've sorted the rest into categories.

Gamers I like who both played for the Cubs, Braves and Blue Jays.

Infielders Making the Play

This is a fantasy throwback

Robert Crumb Loves Early Jazz Part 5 Wingy, Pops, Steve and Earl

For those of you who can't get enough of these cards here are four more.  Hopefully you're listening to some of the music as well.

Yazoo Early Jazz Greats by R. Crumb Part 4 Ikey, Roy, Jack and Jabbo

One thing you notice from reading the backs of the cards, assuming you don't already know, is how many of these guys worked with one another.  There's more great artwork from Robert Crumb in this group.  I wonder what became of the original watercolors. (I found a reference to an exhibit at the Philadelphia Institute of Art in 2008 that included an unspecified number of them.)
