I Never Thought I Would See Another One Again!

Have you ever gotten rid of a card only to regret, almost immediately, doing so? That was the case for me with this 2008 Topps Chrome The National Joey Votto. I had a nice collection of 2008 Votto rookies that I had amassed a few years ago but decided to get rid of them. There were a few Upper Deck rookie autograph and low number Topps Triple Threads that I parted ways with, but this Topps Chrome National was a heartbreaker. According to "it's believed that only 300 copies of each base card were produced for this promotion". Earlier in the week I happened to stumble across a listing for this card on Beckett Marketplace. I felt the asking price was ok and I went ahead and purchased this card since I don't know if I'll ever be able to stumble across another one again. With this purchase I now have 90 different Votto rookie cards in my collection (five 2002 Votto cards and eighty-five 2008 Votto cards). I can now mark this project as complete. If you're interested, you can view all the cards I have for this project here
