COMC haul #11: as good as it Getz

(Note:  all COMC haul posts can be accessed here)

Ok, Greg--you post Getz, I post Getz too!

Today's subject is former Michigan 2B Chris Getz, who was drafted by the White Sox, then flipped to the division-rival Royals back in 2009.  Since I had a scanner-friendly nine total cards of Getz in this package, I decided to show of all of them at once.  And here they are:
Chris Getz 2008 Bowman Chrome Draft Prospects Refractor
Chris Getz 2010 Topps 206 Bronze
Chris Getz 2010 Topps 206 Mini Framed American Caramel auto
Chris Getz 2010 Topps 206 Mini Piedmont
Chris Getz 2010 Topps Gold Border (#1433/2010)
Chris Getz 2011 Topps Cognac Diamond Anniversary
Chris Getz 2011 Topps Diamond Anniversary Factory Set Limited Edition
Chris Getz 2011 Topps Diamond Anniversary
Chris Getz 2012 Topps Target Red Border

Well, that there is a pretty decent variety of cards, even if they each hail from Topps products.  My favorites are the BowChro Refractor (probably BA Benny's and Jeff's as well) and the autograph (no surprise), and the only real duds for me are the T206 Bronze (just boring in general) and Topps Target (one of several stupid and useless retail-specific parallels collectors now have to chase).  Everything is is pretty cool, especially some fun parallels, and I even liked the mini, if you can believe it.

Overall, nothing huge here, but I did hit my sixth hit of Getz, which is also my sixth auto of him.  His PC now stands at 18 cards, out of 80 non-1/1s that I know of.  I'm not exactly looking forward to trying to pin down some of his tougher stuff, especially his brand-new Heritage High Numbers issues--his Red version has gone for about $70 and another may end up near that as well.  Then again, you never know what kind of deals you might find, especially when you least expect them.  I may become more motivated as I continue chipping away at Getz's checklist, which is actually fairly light compared to some of the other players I'm PCing.

I'll be taking tomorrow off to enjoy the holiday, but rest assured I'll be back this weekend with more good stuff, not to mention some talk about the upcoming game against Ohio.  GO BLUE!


  1. I like the ones you mentioned as well as the diamond sparkly, I still enjoy those. Just the diamond ones, not the puke colored ones.

    1. No love for the Liquorfractors, eh? To be honest, I could do without them too, but they're still not as bad as some of the stuff Topps does (e.g. the Target, Wal-Mart, etc. parallels).
