Silky Smooth

My LCS, Legends Sports & Games, had Hobby boxes of 2010 Topps 206 for $39.99. With two guaranteed relics or auto's, how could I not pick one up. There are a couple of pricks that work at Legends (one of them is a manager or owner), so I don't usually give them any of my hard earned cabbage. However, they just moved into a new location, and I was there checking out the new lay-out. My addiction to opening packs took over.
I gotta say, 2010 Topps 206 has got to be in the running for a Gummie for worst set of the year. The hatless images are horrible looking. The design is blah.
I got one autographed card, Bengie Molina in a Giants uni. I also got a Giovani Soto jersey card.
I also pulled this silk card of Frank Chance. Serial numbered 37/50. I like getting low numbered cards. I don't like a silk card as much as say, a table leg chip from Babe Ruth's kitchen table.
I got the usual assortment of odd backed mini's. Also a stack of Bronze bordered parallels.
For 40 bucks, I say buy. Any more than that, and you'll be disappointed.

  1. Interested in the Chance and Soto cards. I'll go through my stuff and shoot you an offer later on tonight.
