I was fortunate enough to acquire not one, not two, but three 2013 Topps Chrome cards of Matt Cain on eBay for a grand total of 11 cents. (Photo of the back for contrast!) These are my first Chrome cards of the year. I usually don’t buy packs because they are overpriced. These are decent looking cards though of a legitimate star pitcher. I will likely pick up a few more Chrome cards here and there. But I won’t be wasting my money on packs or boxes.
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.
