Do You Like Chrome?

I’ll be back to semi-regular blogging soon I think.  Got the card table and the cards are slowly getting organized and will begin being sent out in early August.  If those I owe cards or were in the process of working out a trade with would comment or email what I was supposed to be sending them, that would be helpful.  Thanks.

In the meantime, please enjoy these ’08 topps Chrome inserts, pulled from way too many packs from the $1.59 bin at Target awhile back.  All are available, as (well as the base cards) except for the Trading Card History cards. I’m thinking those may be a worthy set to build.  And the Mannyfractor is already set aside for Shoebox Legends if he wants it.

Now then, onto the cards!

Refractors: Swish, Kenji Johjima, Nick Markakis, Roy Oswalt, Jon Lester Heritage Chrome /1959, Brian Bass RC, Nate McClouth, Curtis Granderson

X-Fractors: John Maine, Justin Upton, Ryan Howard, Victor Martinez, Steve Pearce Chrome Heritage /1959, Randor Bierd RC, Prince Fielder, Jermaine Dye

Pudge, Pence, & Markakis 50th Anniversary All-Rookie Team, Mantle’s 470th and 480th home runs, and the big hit of the 24 packs: Joey Votto Heritage Chrome Refractor /559!

Trading Card History: Mannyfractor /400(I think), Cameron Maybin, Mickey Mantle, Alex Rodriguez, Magglio Ordonez, Vlad Guerrero

Apologies for the lack of captions on a couple pics.  I’m not redoing them.  So just thank WordPress for eating ’em & proceed.  Besides, you can click on the pics to make them ginormous & readable anyway.  Grrr…

Anyway, as mentioned, all but the Mannyfractor are keepers on the last pic.  Kinda just want to get them all one version.

Alright, I’m gone. for now.

Holla.

2008 topps Chrome from the $1.59 Bin

Exactly what it says on the tin.  I raided the newest stuff that had found it’s way into the discount bin at Shopko when I was in there on Saturday.  Also picked up two 2007 topps ’52 Rookies packs, a pack of 2008 Mayo football, and the most boring pack of 2008 topps Heritage ever made.  More on that stuff another time though; we all about the Chrome right now!  I got shorted a card in one pack, so only 27 cards.  This is everything:

6 packs 2008 topps Chrome 1

The Harden Refractor is a keeper until he ends up somewhere else...

6 packs 2008 topps Chrome 2

J-Roll is a blue refractor parallel #ed /200. And did those X-Fractors scan nice or what? Randor Bierd & Matt Holliday

6 packs 2008 topps Chrome 3

Grady's a Refractor if you can't quite tell. Manny's going to Wicked Ortega. Someday. Adam Jones is for Beardy. So's Prince Randor of Eternia if he wants him.

Everyone except for Harden (for now), Manny, Pacman Jones, & maybe Randorrrrr are available for trade.  Call ya shot.

Over and out!
