The latest way for Topps to get our money.
Of course, no one is going to twist your arm.
2013 Topps Chipz.
Poker chips with baseball player photos.
I saw one other post on these tonight by
McCann Can Triple at A Rookie (baseball) Card Collector .
Here's what I have.
Here is your basic chip front.
Both sides do have a very high gloss finish.
This is a Silver Parallel.
Note the silverish flip side.
There is also a Gold version.
In four packs I got one silver and no gold.
Glow in the Dark parallel !
These have a completely different texture.
The player image has a very dull surface.
The entire reverse got the semi-gloss,
slightly rough surface treatment.
Here it is, glowing in the dark !
Right in the center you can just barely
see a small oval shaped area, slightly
lighter than the background.
That's the glow !!
Are you as impressed as I am !?
I'll admit, it does look better in person.
And if I was a youngster, I would probably be more excited.
Here is the Magnetic Parallel.
You can see the high gloss in this shot
and right in the center there is a small round impression.
That's the magnet.
All the chipz have a metal core and stick to the
I do see the point in these. You could stick them on a school locker
( on the inside of course!), file cabinets or any metal surface for display.
The wrapper says
" 1 Team Sticker ".
The "sticker" comes mounted on a chip
from the respected team.
It peals right off and is actually
a vinyl cling type thingy.
There are also "Instant Winner" 1-5236,
"Relic" chipz" 1- 1,047 and "Autographs" 1- 2,094.
Doesn't say what you can win.
I forgot to shoot the wrapper and the game board,
you can see them on McCann Can Triple's post.
They're OK. I definitely want all the Indians.
The surface scratches very easily though,
pristine examples may be hard to find.
On to ebay !!
Nice card, huh !?
Got it for $.01 plus $2.00 shipping.
It came shipped in a folded over team bag in a PWE !!
No other protection what so ever.
I was totally amazed that there was no damage.
Also got these from 2 other sellers.
The red in 2 of 25.
Our SS of the future.
And finally, a blue border TV
(sorry, very bad photo)
Hank Aaron !
I don't really care for these "TV" cards with blue borders.
But it is Hammerin' Hank !!
Well, the Indians just lost 5-1.
Time for bed !!
