One of the 2013 Chrome cards I picked up recently was this Nelson Cruz black refractor #17/100.
Just kidding. I'm not one for all the Ebay all-caps hype, but when I saw this one listed along with a base Chrome Cruz for $1.99 so I bought it. I don't think the seller realized Cruz's uniform number was 17 because he didn't even list it in the title. Works for me.
I had a Nelson Cruz mishap at my house over the weekend. As I don't have anywhere to display my few assorted collectibles, I keep them boxed up. Well....
the new dog apparently isn't a big Cruz fan. He tore into the bobblehead I got from a friend. His wife works for the Rangers so she sometimes gives him stuff to give me. Nice hookup.
Fortunately, Cruz himself was none the worse for wear so I tossed the box and left Nelson out to guard my computer. Step away from the keyboard young man.
