On the Twelfth Day of Cardmas, My Mistress Gave to Me...

...12 Chromers Chroming,

11 Scorers Scoring,
10 UD Heroes,9 SP Prospects,
8 Packs-o-Ginters,7 SPx-es,
6 Masterpieces,5 Triple Plays,
4 B-ball Chromes,3 Cheap Primes,
2 Junky Fleers,And A Pack of Overpriced Crap.

What better way to end a Cardmas countdown than with 12 packs of shiny chrome cards. CC=Chris Cringle? By weight, maybe.

Random thought: Is a card with a piece of authentic base in it referred to as a base card?

Hooray for a poorly scanned insert of Zim!

Hooray for awesomely scanned refractors, especially the Wright gem!

Hooray for Xfractors, which have been the best easily attainable parallels cards for quite some time!

#370/499 and #358/499
 Hooray for numbered purple refractors even though neither team uses purple!

We finally reached the end of the countdown.  It is only appropriate to cap off the Cardmas tree with a gold star:

I was really surprised to see a gold refractor fall out of a discounted retail pack.  I was stoked to see it was a good player.  I think it is definitely a nice card to end on.

I hope you enjoyed the 12 Days of Cardmas!
