Default Who also collects NON AUTO COLOR???

In addition to mid to late 90's Jeter Inserts, I also collect Modern day Jeter "Bling". Does anyone else collect refractors of their favorite player? I think it would look best to keep this thread LIKE A GALLERY, so PLEASE just post a scan of ONE CARD PER POST, SO WE CAN ENJOY THE CARDS! I feel that if you post a million cards no one really gets to take in one of them...THANKS 2011 Finest Gold Refractor/50

Been picking up a lot of Bowman Chrome Gold /50 lately for around $5 or less. Figuring if nothing else it's a semi rare base card.


Grabbed this one for $6 which I think is a steal. I honestly don't think Simmons is the long term answer in Atlanta and I can see them trading him down the line somewhere. He's solid defensively but he's never going to put up huge offensive numbers like Pastornicky can.

I like them but haven't been able to get my hands on many so far.

Gorgeous cards. I love when a baseball card holds value for being a baseball card...not a relic, auto or anything.....

I collect all non-Auto color of Cardinals and love doing it. Best is when you pull one. Although you overpaid by the price of a box by doing so

I think posting 2 like this is fine. You can still apreciate each card and they both fit the criteria. Thanks to everyone for keeping it neat it makes it like a gallery of "BLING"

I love NON AUTO color. cheaper than autos, and since I started collecting in the 1980s, I'm just used to non-auto cards...

And you've gotta admit, the non-auto of that Bauer looks 100x better than the auto'd version.

Looks like he's jumping out of the card!

I pulled this one back in 2009 out of retail and still own it... It was a pretty good pull at the time:

I couldn't find a scan of any of my red drurys alone, not with the others so ill post this. You're exactly right there is something nice about a good old colored refractor




Question: in regards to the Bauers posted above, did they do canary yellows in 2012?

The uglier and more sloppy player autos are getting, the more I am choosing to buy low numbered color refractors instead. Or luck out and pull them from a pack!

Nice Martin that puppy is gonna skyrocket before to long. Not a lot of people outside of hardcore collecting know about him but he could be a huge surprise this year.

Love parallels. Have both complete rainbows of Longoria this year (Topps Chrome and Bowman Chrome) and am always looking for new ones.
