This is another group of cards from my Christmas loot. Before Christmas, my wife and I were out doing some last minute browsing, and I bought myself a Topps 2010 Best of Chrome Value Box from Target with some early Christmas money her grandfather sent us.
Naturally, I have to break it down into 5 separate posts: Topps Chrome, Bowman Chrome, Million Card Giveaway, Special Refractors, and Bowman Platinum Hobby. Here are the 5 Special Refractors:
BC-1: Stephen Strasburg
>>> About time Topps put out a Strasburg card...
BC-2: Starlin Castro
>>> No offense to Castro, but this should have been Buster Posey.
BC-3: Jason Heyward
>>> No offense to Heyward, but this should have been Neftali Feliz.
BC-4: Mickey Mantle
>>> Seriously, who comes up with these miniset ideas. Who had the gigantic brass balls to say, "We'll have Strasburg as #1, then a couple of other rookie card-sellers that weren't ROYs, and then we'll have Mantle."
BC-5: Jackie Robinson
>>> See above, and replace "Mantle" with "Robinson".
