A Refractor Delight

                                                                   ( Touch to enlarge)

O.k now I got my life story out of the way lets do some cards. I firmly believe that Dave and Adams is the only way to go as far as single hobby boxes go. All boxes are pulled directly from sealed cases, and not cherry picked. This helps sway the odds in your favor, and gives you A much better chance at A case hit. Remember that case picking renegades control 80% of the Ebay market, and their sole purpose in life is to disrupt your Mojo. Don't fall victim to these idiots, and  always do your research when it comes to online auction purchases. I have come to appreciate refractor based sets over the years, and Topps Finest always seems to come through year after year. I really like the third dimensional design this years cards bring. The framing is tight, and the paralleled refractors feature solid colored borders that add to the overall intenseness of the card. You also receive a redemption for a rookie to be named later, and it's no coincidence that I pulled lucky number seven. I just don't quite understand the whole rookie exclusive manufactured patch thing. Topps took a huge step backwards by returning to sticker autographs after releasing on card versions last year.  The hobby is already flooded with enough useless autographed rookie cards, and I honestly think this was either a cost saving decision or a major blunder.  Other than that I had a fun time opening this product. I liked the intense look of the paralleled refractors, and the design is one of this years best. Topps Finest  "is what it is"  A refractor delight that is incredibly easy on the eyes, but a little hard on the wallet.

    I'll send it out with SooZies package on Monday. King Albert must rule The Finest kingdom from his cell phone, because he rarely steps foot in it.

  5. Love Dave & Adam's! I pulled a Frank Howard auto out of a single pack, and have done well with Topps 52. Whenever I'm out that way, from Rochester, I stop there to get a fix.

  6. Dont you love it. I think some of my best pulls have come out of there. They have a huge turnover on their hobby boxes, and its always crowded. One of the few great card shops left in existence.
