Purple Shiny Winners

Not pictured: Mickey Mouse ears

Congrats are due to Jim of The Phillies Room for being chosen as the winner of Friday's quick contest. The prize is 3 of the purple refractors that I pulled from a recently purchased $10 blaster of 2014 Topps Heritage. For the second year in a row, I ended up with a "hot box" containing a purple refractor in each pack, though none of the refractors fit into my collection. As for the 2014 Topps Heritage set proper, I wound up with a couple of inserts and a couple of SPs that I needed, and that's pretty much it. Let me know if you can help out with the set or are looking for anything (I have lots of doubles now.)

Once Jim makes his picks, the rest of these will be available for trades and the like.

The Chrome parallels must have a longer lead time for production because they'll often feature a player in their former (pre-Photoshop) uniform while the base card will be "updated".

So... I've run out of things to say. Enjoy the pictures.

Here's another guy, looking somewhere.

Hey... look at me. I like... baseball?

This is a reliever.



  1. If Jim does not select the Carlos Gomez, let me know whether we can work out a trade for it!

  2. Thanks for the cards and the extras! They arrived yesterday and Doug has already carefully added them to his binder pages of 2014 "special" cards.

    He let me keep the Shibe Park card, which I had never seen before. I'm going to write a little bit about it on my blog today.
