The Gallery of Greats inserts from 2015 Topps Series 1 (--btw, how the hell did they not continue this into Series 2? Dumb move on Topps' part to abandon it--) might not exactly fit into the definition of black refractors, but they're pretty darn close, with a black (or at least very dark grey) matte framed border and a refractory background to the photos. I admired them on the blogs from afar for a while. Finally landed myself a couple...
|Hard to top Tony Gwynn and Hank Aaron|
Looks like a lot of rainbow sunsets, plus one guy about to get taken under by a tidal wave.
I've got dupes of Clemens (Mr. Hoyle, do you need one?) and Hanley.
Would love to round up the 17 other cards I'm missing from this insert set. If you've got any available, please let me know. I've added my needs to my wantlist. I probably won't go as far as to say that I collect black refractors across the board.. but.. if you have any that need a home, feel free to send them here.
Those are amazing. I hadn't seen those before. I am like you and feel the refractor type cards. Anything shiny I say!ReplyDelete
That Hank Aaron is a great looking card. I'm a sucker for the black bordered cards myself, so these definitely appeal to me.ReplyDelete
Cool. Gavin. I would love the ClemensReplyDelete
Topps might drop the ball every now and then... but whenever I get frustrated with them... I think about their framed cards like these inserts and of course their GQ stuff. These look awesome!ReplyDelete
It is a pretty cool set, I picked up the Griffey card after they came out. I am a fan of the bordered cards.ReplyDelete
That was my favorite insert set from Series 1. I like the Aaron the best.ReplyDelete
