Well, each of these new repacks also came with Topps Chrome Orange on the front. So, here are the 5 Orange Chrome cards I got:
A couple of Braves (though I wish Beachy didn't have to visit the Tommy-John doctor again) and some other very nice Chrome Oranges. It's fun seeing these on the front of the repacks, because these cards still have a good audience looking for them.
Then, there was the random vintage cards. I had a pretty decent number of 1976 Topps again.
And, for my tastes, what's better than two vintage Brewers? I mean, I can only have dreams about having sideburns as cool as Pedro Garcia has in this photo. Then, to get a Rico Petrocelli card? I mean, Rico left the game early --- at age 33 -- but he was the prototype for the good hitting shortstop. He hit 40 homers in 1969 (and only drove in 97 runs!) and was an all-star twice in his career. He isn't a Hall of Famer, but he was a star in his day. A great card to grab.
Finally, let's close with random fun cards that are the type that make card collecting fun.
|My wife wants to frame this next to the JFK card.|
|A golden shower...|
|I have five of these. Each repack had one.|
|Randomly inserted -- not in one of the packs. Hmmm...|
|Yes, repacks are now carrying some of the inserts in them. This one is humorous. |
Dan Uggla would some day like to learn to hit 1/2 as well as Ryne Sandberg.
|Weird. Just weird.|
|Again, another repack loose card thrown in with the 1989 Topps.|
|One of the worst colored cards I have ever seen. Never, ever use purple/violet/mauve|
for a card design. It is horribly ugly.
That's the end of the repack fun for this week. I know I will buy more.
