One of the sets that I am most interested in finding for my Tzu-Wei Lin collection is the 2017 Topps Update set. I have not made much progress with it, only finding the base, gold, rainbow foil, negative, and clear parallels. A lot of the harder to find ones have eluded me. Until now:
This is the Memorial Day Camo parallel, serial-numbered to 25. It is these special color ones that I am most interested in.
As for his chances of making it to the Red Sox roster next season, I am a little concerned. Boston has a logjam of infielders, especially with Eduardo Nunez deciding to exercise his option to stay for another year. I thought that was Lin's best chance. He will have to compete with Brock Holt, Marco Hernandez, and Blake Swihart to make a superutility role. There are two spots still available on the position player part of the roster and Lin can play in the outfield. He also hit well down the stretch. I think there is a reasonable chance he will make it onto the Opening Day roster.
