Delivery Time: Getting Close to a Complete Set (2013 Topps Chrome Edition)

A week or two ago, I posted a blog entry where I basically begged for some trade partners to help me finish off my 2013 Topps Chrome set.  I didn't get a lot of bites from that post - but I did get one.  Adam from ARPSmith's Sportscard Obsession offered to shoot five shiny cards that I needed my way!

As I mentioned, Adam had five of the seventeen cards that I needed - that's a huge chunk when you get down close to the end (as any set builder will tell you)!

Before I get to what I still need, here's a look at the five that will shortly be residing safely in my binder:

The best card of the five (in my opinion) is the Alex Wood - it's a great horizontal image plus it's Wood's rookie card.  I also like the Montero quite a bit...but not as much as the Alex Wood card!

The most unfortunate player of the five is, of course, Josh Hamilton.  The poor guy seems like he cares for everyone (fans, players, etc.)...everyone, that is, but himself.  Talk about having some demons.

Note:  I'm writing this post before Hamilton's punishment has been meted out by MLB.  I'm hoping that A) Hamilton gets back on track, B) Hamilton is ok, and C) MLB is fair to Hamilton.

With that out of the way, here's a list of the 2013 Topps Chrome cards that I still need:

Regular Base Card Needs:
1.  Mike Trout
10.  Derek Jeter
16.  Wil Myers
32.  Jose Fernandez
48.  Andre Ethier
55.  Mike Olt
119.  Micheal Wacha
133.  Will Middlebrooks
136.  Albert Pujols
190.  Adam LaRoche
210.  Gerrit Cole
220.  Bryce Harper

If you have any of the above cards for trade, please let me know.  I also have listed a bunch of my duplicate and/or unwanted 2013 Topps Chrome cards - including a variety of inserts (including die-cuts)!  I'd happily make some sort of deal!
