Merry COMC-mas! Merry Chromemas!

Merry Christmas!
Hah. Awesome.

Today, I leave for South Korea. By the time you read this, I should be settled into my hotel room, most likely enjoying fish and chips at a pub I've read about. Don't worry, I'll be digging into the barbecue and kimchi soon enough. But recently, my Black Friday haul from COMC.com finally arrived at my doorstep. I wish I could have bought more, but I don't have tons of US money and paying with yen just isn't an option. I'm really happy with what I have. I'm going to split this up so enjoy!
 We'll start with the Chrome. I mainly grabbed parallels, since, well, that's all there is with Chrome. Here's an orange refractor. It looks red, doesn't it.
 Here's the black refractor. Thanks to my scanner, you can't see any of the black border. Oh well.
 This is the regular refractor.
 Purple refractor.
 Blue refractor. My scanner doesn't seem to like colors on Chrome cards.
And I picked up a rookie autograph! Maybe Tyler Pastornicky will become a superstar shortstop... he was the Braves opening day starting shortstop, after all.

Oh, he can't field? And was hitting only .242? Maybe he just needs a little more seasoning.

While on one hand I'm not a big fan of Chrome, the different refractor colors look really great.
And this card looks awesome. I really like this die-cut insert! With team colors used in the background, a full set should provide a nice rainbow to look at. But there are 50 cards in the set. If you have extras of these you want to part with, feel free to send them my way!

More tomorrow!
