Maybe it is the fact that I am getting older and holding onto nostalgia by saying things like "when I was a kid..." and "things used to be so much better when...", but honestly those older Bowman Chrome color parallels do a Chuck Norris dropkick to anything being produced by Bowman today.
The gold chrome on the older cards is so distinctive and gives it a sense of awe that is unparalled (pardon the pun) in today's hobby.
Sure we have Gold Waves and Flash Gold's and Gold Golds now, but remember when Gold was just Gold?
Man those were the days...
I said I was going to go deep into my Treasure Room to show off some early Andrew McCutchen cards I have that I never showed off before.
This 2004 Gold Chrome is probably as old as they are going to come unless I get a wallet sized little league photo of Cutch.
The cards were released as a redemption only set and many went without being redeemed.
Numbered to 50
