Chrome Supernovas

Not even a hurricane can stop John from sending out cards.  Thankfully John confirmed that he is doing fine and was void of any property damage.  That is great news.  

I kind of feel like I need to build a wing in my house just for cards that John has sent my way.  Seems like every month or two I get an envelope full of great cards.  This time around it was an awesome mix of chrome cards with a sprinkle of some other newer releases. 

Topps Chrome parallels seem to be pretty popular.  Maybe not quite to the level of Bowman Chrome because of the prospectors but you could make an argument that Topps Chrome looks better.

Do they call these copper or sepia?  How about we call them cosepias.  Either way I'm always happy to add some new Taillon cards to the collection. 

Big fan of the "Sunday" uniforms of the Pirates the last couple of years.  Got to love throwbacks.  Cole has had such a weird year this year.  He has been getting killed by the long ball, but still shows flashes of complete domination.  Hopefully he can find a way to get back to his dominating consistency he showed in 2015.
I don't buy much Ginter so these are always welcomed.

The Glasnow is a great rookie card numbered to /99.  Thanks a ton John for sending that one my way.
All Van Slyke cards are awesome.  If you were a Pirate fan in the early 90's you likely adored the Pirate center fielder.

Thanks a ton for the surprise package John.  Hope you get your power back soon and things get back to normal.  Really glad to hear your family is safe.

Thanks for reading.
