Late night Meijer run

After my wife and I enjoyed a nice evening out, we decided to hit Meijer for some milk. We poked our heads in the baseball card aisle and noticed they had some Topps Chrome packs. They were rather pricey at $10.99 for 17 cards, but I decided to get a pack. You get 3 packs containing 4 cards plus a 5 pack of pink refractors. We also got a few Topps Series 2 – 36 count packs, but they didn’t impress me enough to take any pics.

I seem to be on a Cody Bellinger hot streak as I found one of his rookie cards in the Topps Chrome. Also got a Yoan Moncada RC and Alex Bregman 1987 card. The Miguel Cabrera card is a negative which is kind of cool. The Bryce Harper is a pink refractor.

Only a few Cubs in this with Addison Russell, Jason Heyward Refractor and Jose Quintana (now a Cub).

I like the Topps Chrome cards. They feel a little thicker to me and the cards really pop. I just wish they weren’t so darned expensive!

P.S. Yes, we did manage to pick up some milk while we were there. 🙂

eBay – Jose Quintana lot of 28 cards

Jose Quintana was just traded from the Chicago White Sox to my Chicago Cubs, so I had to pick up some of his cards. I didn’t know what I wanted really, so I started looking for lots on eBay. I came across one seller that had 28 of them up for auction. I wasn’t sure what to bid on them, so I put in $10 and let the auction run its course. It closed for $6.74 + $3 s/h so I was pretty excited! There’s a nice selection from his rookie card to some 2017 stuff.

The 4 RCs included are the following:

2012 Bowman Chrome Draft
2012 Bowman Draft
2012 Panini Prizm
2012 Topps Update

So I just need the Bowman Sterling and I’ll have them all. Not too shabby for $10 worth of cards!
