More Xfractor Love!

YES! It’s finally here. I spent a pretty penny on this one, but it was worth it because now I have 3 out of the 7 parallels. Not that I’ll get all of them, but I love this product and I love the refractor parallels that go along with it. You don’t see these very often anymore on eBay either. I basically traded the value of my five Allen & Ginter silk cards for this one card. This takes over the refractor as my most centerpiece card of the collection now. I’m also up to 108 cards in the collection. The other base and refractor parallel are graded, but I think I’m going to keep this as is in a toploader. Here’s a look:


Tired of Xfractors yet?

As you can deduce, I am definitely not. This is the latest Xfractor parallel from the 2007 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects product. This design is as close to a superfractor as I will get. Both designs have a lot of similarities. I’m now at 104 cards. Anyway, I haven’t received any more packages for the contest and I’m nearing 10,000 hits (my goal was to finish the contest by the time I hit 10,000). If there are anymore packages out there, e-mail me. Otherwise, I am going to give the whole lot away to the first person who e-mails me. I will give everyone until Friday to claim pending shipments.


Card #100!

In my effort to acquire and put together a complete set of the parallels from 2007 Bowman Chrome, I took one step closer today with the acquisition of an Xfractor parallel. This one cost me a pretty penny, but it was still a tad cheaper than what they’ve sold for in the past on eBay. Again, I cannot emphasize enough of my appreciation of the refractor parallels in this product. This card puts me at exactly 100 cards in the collection and counting. I still have a couple eBay purchases coming in the next few days. I also didn’t receive anything today for the contest and there’s still plenty of prizes if you click the contest link on your right so keep those packages coming!
