I love chrome. I love it on classic cars. I love it on household fixtures. I love it on baseball cards. I guess that's why I love the 2006 Topps cards as much as I do...for the chrome. I think Topps did a great job with this set from the red white and blue border, to the great photography, to the use of chrome in the team and player name. Not only that, but the set does have "The Kid" still as a Red. Next to Rose and Larkin, Griffey is my third most favorite Red even though he was banged up a lot and wasn't able to post numbers in Cincinnati that he did in Seattle. No matter. I think the only other way this set could have been better would have been to have Mr. Redlegs as part of it!
