    It was in a penny sleeve and top loader. I donít know if it was from the pressure of the top loader itself, or maybe an inferior penny sleeve. Maybe a 55pt would have been better. Iím in the process of switching everything over to new ultra pro sleeves/toploaders.

    It sucks when card companies start experimenting with different chemical compounds for their surface coatings. I wonder how extensively they test the new coatings with existing card protection products, or even if they do.
    I remember when Ď91 Stadium Club came out and it was glossier than anything Iíd seen before. The cards had a smell that, to me, smelled like carrots.

    Gold #/449
    Black #/199

    Does anyone else find these very hard to come across, especially the black & silver? I'm not understanding why a card #/199 from 2003, when the glut started, is so hard to find. And the silver is even tougher somehow?
    Over a year later and a Black #/199 finally came up for sale (I'm not counting the one on Beckett that nut Card Gallery has for $36 that will be there until inflation makes the $7 I paid worth $36 in 2055 money).

    I get as much enjoyment finding these type cards as I do 1/1s. #/199 and takes years & years to find, it's so odd for just a plain ole' Topps Chome refractor. If anyone ever sees the Silver retail, nudge me.

    Congrats! When the only one I have seen surfaced, I was on the road to Canseco's house and missed out. I have since picked up an unstamped version so I'm happy with that ... but still looking for the stamped one as well

    Damn that is sexy. That wasn't on eBay, was it? I'd love that swatch.

    Speaking of Vlad, I really like this "Capture The Action" Game View film card /99 I recently picked up on COMC. These seem tough to find.

    Silver are super tough as they were redemptions, only for Series 2 (was Johnson in Series 1 or 2?). I believe there were 100 redemption cards for each player, not all got redeemed by a longshot. You also need an uncirculated Xfractor #/57.

    The Mark Grace Museum strikes again! Well done. You are awesome in your organization and reference capabilities. When I don't know what a card set/issue looks like I go to your site

    I have the X-Fractor #/57, I never remember it since it's still encased thus away from the 2003 binder.

    I didn't realize the Silvers were single card redemptions, I thought it was for the whole set or something. I'll have to mark that one as 'unlikely to find' on the old checklist.

    440 Card set, 220 in each series. So Series 2 begins with 221. I see Johnson was in Series 2 (card #230).
