Let me start by saying this is NOT the November monthly contest. That will be coming up tomorrow.
Sometime last week, I went to the LCS to pick up a few supplies. I've tried to cut back on the spending this month and although I did buy a blaster to open during the World Series and a couple of group breaks, I haven't spent any money on actual cards. I almost always buy two or three packs of older Topps Chrome packs at the LCS when I make a supply run, but this time I promised myself to only get the supplies.
That didn't happen.
I didn't buy any packs, but the owner had a nice stack of 2011 Chrome Orange Refractors on the counter. He said a guy brought them in looking to trade them for Hobby packs of Chrome. The owner didn't have any packs so the guy traded them for two packs of Topps Series 2 cards. I was a little shocked, but the owner said he didn't really want to mess with them so I could have them for the price of those two Topps packs. He sells his Topps packs for $2.50 so I jumped at the chance for those Orange Refractors for $5.
Now for the contest part. Guess how many 2011 Topps Chrome Orange Refractors I have in my Chrome box. This includes the stack I bought from the LCS, the ones I pulled from my own Value Packs and the few I've picked up in trades. Go ahead and list your favorite team as well. You'll win an unopened pack of something and all the Orange Chrome cards I have for your favorite team (unless your favorite team is the Rangers!)
If more than one person gets the correct number, I'll do a randomization to get a winner.
This one will only be open until the middle of tonight so get your guesses in asap!
Happy Halloween everyone! Be safe out there tonight!
