Shiny Cardboard - The Other Half of the Vlad Equation

Happy Fourth of July to anyone reading this in the United States!

A few weeks back, I featured this sweet Vlad Guerrero refractor from the "Best Performers" subset of the 1999 Bowman's Best release:

Love this card, and it immediately became my new favorite Vlad.  It also made me very much want to track down the standard Guerrero refractor from the release so I could form a pair, as I recently did with Sammy Sosa.


 ...mission accomplished!  I've talked about these refractors a few times on the blog over the course of this summer, so I'll spare you that again here.  Suffice it to say a simply beautiful piece of cardboard that looks even better in hand.

Here's the back, serial numbering (to /400) is at the bottom of the color photograph there.

Just a quick and dirty single card post for today, but I'm now up to half a dozen of these refractors in total.  These two Guerreros are the only HOF cards from that small bunch, but I'll have at least one more guy from this set who's enshrined in Cooperstown to show off whenever my latest COMC order finally gets here.

Thanks for checking out my shiny cardboard.  I'll be back tomorrow with a Signature Sundays autograph post.  Until then, stay safe and enjoy your holiday weekend!
