eBay – 2015 Topps Chrome Javier Baez RC

With Addison Russell out with another foot injury, Javier Baez has been getting more playing time at shortstop. I figured it was time to pick up his 2015 Topps Chrome rookie card. I looked around on eBay and found a buy it now for $2.25 with free shipping. It arrived today in a plain white envelope. The card was in Ultra Pro card saver as well as a penny sleeve. It is in mint condition and has a nice picture of Baez most likely trying to complete the double play. I’m not sure what it is about the 2015 Topps/Topps Chrome design, but I really enjoy it.

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. 🙂
