Not Exactly the Planned Chase Cards

With high end sets like Ultimate Collection and Tribute, what the real chase cards are probably depends on your collection preferences.

So, for me, it is the interesting base card photos.
Such as the incredibly yellow Marcel Dionne card. This might be the most yellow card in his collection, as other cards of him in the yellow uniform either are close cropped so as not to blind an unwary collector, or with the purple short offsetting any yellowness of the uniform.

So, unless COMC deceives me, this is the yellowest Marcel Dionne card available.
And then there's also this base card from the ill-fated 2015 Tribute set. Here's another card I grabbed simply because it is such a great view of the old Orioles uniform. The only way this could be better is if the photo showed a better view of that great arm logo that's partially hidden.

So, who needs a low-numbered patch card when you can get these beauties for a fraction of the cost?


  1. "I swam across,
    I jumped across for you,
    Oh what a thing to do.
    'Cause you were all yellow,"

    Perhaps Coldplay was inspired by Marcel's card to write that song?

  3. "So, unless COMC deceives me, this is the yellowest Marcel Dionne card available"

    Did COMC add a new search filter?

  4. Most yellow card. I would be searching for cards feauturing the highest percentage of bubblegum.

    I love base cards from high end sets.
