Target Acquired

Back in 2017 I talked about how I was finally able to secure the 2009 Bowman Sterling Black Refractor numbered to only 25 copies.  A recap of that post can be found here.

That post followed my Gold and Base cards I got earlier that year which I wrote about here.

A few weeks ago I was able to get another top target card of mine is any 2009 1/1s.  Rookie cards I don't have are always my top cards I am seeking. 

When I was at the Phillies game a few weeks ago I had to step out of line at Tony Luke's (cheese steak place at Citizens Bank Park) to make sure I won this card.  It is the 2009 Bowman Sterling Red Refractor numbered 1/1.

It goes nice with the 3 Gold's I now own
It also pairs up nicely with the yellow printing plate I have.
Keep in mind that any cards produced with a chrome finish have their printing plates printed reverse.
It completes yet another rainbow for me.
How nice is that black?
And above is the Refractor.


  1. That's dedication! Stepping out of line to make sure you win a card.

  2. Congratulations on the completing the rainbow!
