    2001 Topps Chrome Originals Refractors. Who has one?

    This set has always intrigued me, only because one of the guys I PC, Dave Parker, is included in this 10 card set.

    Here is the checklist:

    Roberto Clemente
    Carl Yastrzemski
    Mike Schmidt
    Wade Boggs
    Chipper Jones
    Willie Mays
    Lou Brock
    Dave Parker
    Barry Bonds
    Alex Rodriguez

    I have never seen a refractor version of any card, let alone Parker.
    I have the "base" card if you will:



    Here is what the Refractor version looks like:

    What I didn't realize is that these are hand #'d. Pretty cool for 2001.

    Anyway, anyone have one?

    You know with the prices people are paying these days for rookie stuff, $350 for that from Burbank seems reasonable.

    And yeah, I get that it's a jacket and less desirable than a jersey but how much Mays stuff is out there?

    I seem to recall seeing these back when they came out, but weren't they only 10 copies?

    A Willie Mays occasionally pops up on ebay. I have an ARod non-refractor.

    I have a Bonds refractor hand numbered 01/10. I would post a scan, but haven't spent time looking for a replacement host since Photobucket went stupid.

    Here is a scan of the front of the Bonds card. I don't have a scan of the back on my computer at the moment. It's hand numbered 1/10 on the back. They are pretty tough cards to find. A few years ago, I remember bidding on a Willie Mays refractor, but it went outside the price range I was willing to pay for it.
