    Love it! I’ve said it on here numerous times, but I’d love to start a Foxx registry someday. Awesome cards!

    Thanks, Monte!

    ETA:
    Yes, I have entertained freeing the card as they’re pretty nice though imperfect. And there’s sort of 4 options - box, panel, card panel and card. I am still undecided at this time but all are a part of the master set.

    I’m one of Mickey’s biggest fans in this board.

    You could make a strong case that Foxx was not as good but actually better.

    I think the sadness and bad luck that surrounds Jimmie’s playing and post playing days of his career hurts his legacy some, like it or not.

    imagine if Foxx had a normal decline and was able to continue playing at a high level into his mid-late 30's

    I think the same could probably be said of both men; alcohol shortened and eventually ruined both men’s careers.

    Like the late, great Mitch Hedberg said, Alcoholism is a disease but it’s the only disease you can get in trouble for having; people say ‘Dammit, Otto, you’re an alcoholic!’ But you never hear, ‘Dammit, Otto, you have lupus!’

    I agree the print on it is as good as it gets. Couple that with the centering and really catches the eye.

    So sweet. Probably my favorite JB too, but the '76 is a nice card.

    I got this Bonds in a lot I purchased. I thought it was a normal refractor, but I think it could be a gold. How can I tell the difference? Is the gold serial numbered? This card doesn't have a serial number that I can see.

    All of the “regular” (1:4 packs) 2002 Topps chrome refractors are gold bordered, there are no silver bordered refractors that year. Just gold and black.

    Thanks Junkwaxgems. I don't collect much modern baseball but this card may stay in the PC.

    I read a biography of Foxx that claimed he was not a big drinker.

    Technically a March pickup but still my newest addition. I was really happy that this '67 High Number is just as nice in hand as it looked on eBay:

    Congrats. I know Colavito is one of the toughest cards in the ‘67 set. That one is a beauty.

    I love the multi-autos.

    Great card. Me as well. This is on it’s way to Darth Grader now. Hopefully the force is with me. Expecting a 4-5. Highest is a 1.5

    I pulled two Will Levis redemptions from 2023 Leaf Metal Draft. I waited about 6 weeks and got an email that the card was in transit. I got the package yesterday and unfortunately Leaf informed me that Will Levis did not sign the card I was supposed to get........then I saw the replacement.........a 1/1.

    I have one more coming today and I can't wait to see what I get! For comparison, I still have a 2019 Kyler Murray waiting at Panini.
