Default One historical insert set down...refractory goodness!

Finished up a historical insert set today...2006 Topps Chrome Declaration of Independence Refractors! Would have completed the Constitution refractor set today too, but didn't realize that Charles Pickney and Charles Coatsworth Pinckney are two different signers. Anybody have a spare Charles Coatsworth Pinckney refractor around (SCC-CCP)? haha.





And the back-



One set down, more to go!

Thanks guys! I decided to focus on the refractors about 3 months ago after I got a nice lot on the 'bay.

Next up is the Constitution Refractor set, then Legendary Americana, then 09 UD Piece of History Historical Moments Blue Parallels!

If you ever end up wanting to sell one or all of these, I would be a very serious buyer. I'm being 100% honest here too.

I have copies of the Declaration of Independence, The Gettysburg Address, Washington's Inaugural Address, etc. hanging in my office right now. I'd love to add something like this. It's right up my alley so to speak.

It would be cool to get that framed. I have some uncut sheets framed and the back of the frame is visible so you can flip it around and see the backs of the cards as well. That would be cool for these cards.

That would be absolutely cool. If I owned this set, that's exactly what I would do, and I would install it in an internal wall so that I could rotate it from front to back, sort of like a revolving door, but more like a picture framed window.

I'm going to have to chase after these cards. Anybody have some they want to part with?

Time to use up that COMC $$ Matt! The set looks awesome, especially flipped over.
