Happy 4th of July, everyone! To celebrate, let's crack open a cold one and a year-old pack of Topps Chrome.
Let's tear in.
Top to Bottom:
243 Brandon McCarthy
264 Mark Teixeira Gold Glove Refractor
GN279 Russell Martin Generation Now Triple #1
102 Reed Johnson
All-American pack? Hardly. We've got the Montreal, Quebec-born Russell Martin, a Blue Jay, and two guys who are depicted as Rangers from the United State of Texas, arguably a sovereign nation in its own right.
But that's what this country is, a little bit of everything.
Question of the Day:
