I'll start this off with a question for those of you who collect Chrome. What's the draw?
As far as I can tell, these are just "chromed-up" versions of the Topps base set, right? I'm saying that as if its a negative, but don't mean it in that way. I'm curious if there are people who collect both these and the regular Topps cards as well. I know very little about the product other than it seems to re-use the same photos from the base set and there are some variations.
I'm willing to be educated on this set and the merits and importance.
I did purchase a retail pack at Target the other day, just to take a look for msyelf.
I ended up with Kosuke Fukudome, Kaz Matsui, Erik Aybar, and an Xfractor of Jesse Chavez (RC). Nothing exciting for my collection, but I can throw them up in trades if someone out there needs/wants these cards for their collections.
