There are certain problems with being away from my scanner. I am pretty much at the mercy of the internet when it comes to finding images of the cards. Even more difficult is finding the images of cards from a brand new product line. Luckily I scoured the web and was able to find some reasonably similar renditions of the actual Chrome cards that I pulled. Below are the first 8 cards in my 1st 2009 Topps Chrome box. I am desperately hoping these packs include Obama and Tommy Hansen short prints! Lets see how we do...
Card #1 Jeremy Bonderman
Card #2 Chi-Hung Cheng Refractor! Wow, already hit my first refractor and as you can see it really shines!
Card #3 Pedro Martinez WBC - Its great to see Petey back on the mound for Philly tonight. Going to be nice to see those curls flowing in the wind once again! Hopefully his comeback is a bit more successful than Mr. Smoltz.
Card #6 - Barry Zito - This particular card is really well done, and really captures the emotion of the moment, most likely after actually striking out a batter.
