Group Break Pack #33: Best Card I've Ever Pulled out of Topps' Flagship Product (from any year)!

Edit:
Warning!  By the time you finish reading this post, you are going to wish you took me up on the offer of 8 teams or 16 teams for one price back before the group break started.  Don't say I didn't warn you!

It's time to open the 33rd (out of 36) pack in the 2013 Topps Series 2 group break box.  We have yet to find our hit, let's hope we find it soon...I hate dealing with Topps' customer service!

Pack 33:
Trevor Plouffe - Twins
Jeremy Affeldt - Giants
Jon Lester - Red Sox

Dayan Viciedo - White Sox
Luis Jimenez - Angels
James McDonald - Pirates
CH-91.  Chasing History:  Joey Votto - Reds

CHR-WMA.  Chasing History Relic:  Willie Mays - Giants #44/99

Woah!  No one claimed the Giants (despite my attempts to get someone to bite on all remaining teams) so look what I ended up with!  That's a gorgeous card - and serially numbered no less.  I know everyone is skeptical about relics (rightfully so) but at least this one looks nice and old, as it should! 

 On a side note, this is the second Joey Votto Chasing History insert in the break - doubles stink within a box, even if it is doubles of an insert!

As for the Mays, I believe this is a Chasing History gold parallel relic (and if it is, they are seeded 1:969 packs, easily the best card I've ever pulled out of any Topps flagship product)!  As much as I love this card, I'll probably end up putting it on eBay...I've got to try and sell some stuff to make money for Allen & Ginter this year, I'm way behind schedule in terms of my budget!
