Who Likes Chipz? I'm All In

This one may go down as one of my weirder pieces of memorabilia.  Take a look....

2013 Topps MLB Chipz Starling Marte Auto 17/25

When I saw this I had to have it.  It actually has a nice weight to it, just like a casino poker chip.  The set had a great auto checklist in which all were numbered to 25.  I'm guessing since a lot of people collect poker chips there are good ways to protect and showcase the piece.  I knew nothing about this set when I ran into this searching for Marte cards on eBay.  Time to search for a cool display case!

Hope everybody is enjoying the draft.  Looks like Manziel is going to be waiting a while.

  1. A unique piece of memorabilia for a player who had a unique walk off inside the parker the other day.

    1. Since it was reviewed I've been hearing people call it a "wait off" homerun.

  2. Another blogger sent me a Jacoby Ellsbury (not signed). They had these at WalMart in my area. I've so far resisted the temptation to buy some.

    1. I'm not sure if I would ever go out of my way to buy a box. I was surprised at the quality. Maybe I'll fish around for the other Pirates.

    1. It is kind of quirky, but I like it. I probably won't buy anymore.

  4. Very cool oddball. I wonder if any A's or Padres have signed chips.

    1. Thanks Fuji! I don't think so on the autos. I believe Gwynn had a relic.
