^^^^^'11 is /225 (like this). '12 atomic is /10. Huge difference, and I don't know why.

Yup the Hosmer is /225. I guess Topps realized that the Atomics were WAY to cool to number them out of 225 so they changed it to /10.

Here's an interesting one. Some sort of X-Fractor type thing from 2008 Topps Co-Signers.

/100

I hope you were joking

Also have most of the 2008 Topps Chrome complete master red refractor set as you can see from sig(plus 40 or 50 dupes). Plus hmm, about 40 red refactors from 2009 topps chrome, 80 or so 2009 finest red refractors, most topps chrome mets red refractors from 2008 thru 2012, and gobs of Ike Davis color.
Love this thread!! I'm a big fan of all of these in particular, and I collect the same thing from 2010 Topps Chrome National Chicle. The only difference with me is that I grade them, and require a min grade of BGS 9.5.

A number of red refractors that I own as well include Pujols, Braun, Howard, one of the Ichiro's (Seattle Pilots version), Pence, & Markakis. Need the other Ichiro, plus Verlander, ARod, Jeter, & Wright in red... always on the lookout for these. Will post scans of what I have tomorrow.

You don't happen to have an extra copy of any of the ones I mentioned, do you? If so, PM me!

Love Non auto color.

Working on building a color set of all the Reds players featured in 2012 Bowman Chrome. The Blue, Purple, Gold and Orange will be easy enough. Any of the Reds and Superfractors would just be a bonus.

I acquired about half of this set within 2 weeks of release.
The remaining half took another 2 months.
Point being that they havent been passed from person to person to person to person and over handled. I havent examined the surface or corners since the time i first got them , but I dont recall being disappointed about any print marks dings or scratches. On the whole I am of the belief that they would all grade high.

The only dupes I have are Beltran,Santana and Pujols (cardinals Uni)

Beltran and Santana are part of my mets collection, Id like another wright as well for the mets collection. I think one sold on ebay within the last couple months, but its not a priority to me.

FWIW - the Zimmerman was the toughest/last card for me to find.
The person who traded it to me took pity on my quest as
it just so happened he was one card away from finishing the gold set #d/50

GL with your set!

Nice, thanks for the info! Glad to hear you were able to finish your quest to complete the set. Let me know if you ever happen to come across some extras that I need.

My main thing when it comes to condition has been the corners, followed by the centering (typically on the back). The cardboard back has typically had at least some light bruising on the corners, so they're hard to get 9.5's on overall because of that.

I've only picked up mine over the last couple of years, so hopefully I'll see them come up on the forums or on ebay sometime in the future.

Gorgeous Altuve!! I know some guys in Houston that go nuts for his cards, and are willing to pay top dollar (like $300-$500) for this card.
