The timing of this gift was uncanny as I had bought myself a hanger box just the day before. I was hoping to find some on my trip to Turner Field recently, but the one Target we hit while in Atlanta was fairly barren.
To sum it up the box was pretty good for this Braves fan. The Beachy and Smoltz in particular were nice finds since I collect these guys regarding the team that they play for.
I knew my aunt picked up this box at Walmart since it included 5 exclusive blue bordered parallels.
So there are 3 different versions of these Chasing History cards, am I right? I think the gold holographic foil come in the hanger boxes, while the silver holographic foil are found in the rack packs and the regular versions in single retail packs.
Glad to see the Cut to the Chase inserts were carried over to Series 2. Making Their Mark is new to Series 2 and showcases a particular accomplishment for that player. I need to see more of these before I decide if they go on the Trade List or the Want List. Chase It Down features some great action photography and a design I'd expect to see on a Stadium Club card. Like.
I was fortunate enough to get a Desert Camo parallel #d to 99. At least it's a Yankee which means it should be easy to flip or trade. The 1972 Minis are also a carry over from Series 1 and while cool, I'm not chasing these. Oh yeah, almost forgot about this year's Million Dollar Chase contest...
I'll be working to put together both my Trade List of doubles and unwanted inserts as well as a new Series 2 Want List. Those links can be found in the upper left corner of the blog.
** UPDATE **
As I was collating the cards I ran across #228 Adrian Gonzalez. Sure enough, this is one of those photo variations. Now, is there a Dodgers fan out there that wants this?
