I'm slowly moving towards finishing this set. (Except for those pesky chrome refractors). Ah, a handful of chrome-gold. Nightowl's post about Topps Series 1 chrome refractors, from cereal boxes, making us all rich was very funny. But, alas, I still covet the inserts from this series. I hope to collect them all. I'm keeping this short so I can head over to Nightowl's to see what he snagged at the card show.
Here are a few highlights from todays pick-up:
Frank Thomas - "The Big Hurt." Is he still playing?
Tug Hullet - Guessing his folks were fans of Tug McGraw?
Mike Pelfrey - "Big Pelf"
Jon Niese - Rookie Card - Could he replace Ollie in the rotation? Was born on October 7th, 1986. Game 7. Coincidence?
Longoria. Gold Cup.
Matt Kemp. Kemp, Loney and now Hudson are a young group that could make the Dodgers a very good team for a long time.
