I picked up a pair of Topps Chrome cards on Listia recently. I don’t invest much money in Topps Chrome and even less in Bowman Chrome. The first card is a 2009 Jeff Samardzija. The second card is a 2012 Jon Lester. I like shiny cards but Chrome can be condition sensitive. Also, they don't scan well. Anyway, these two cards set me back a total of 24 credits, so I still haven’t invested much into my Topps Chrome collection.
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
