2012 Topps Chrome/Refractor/X-Fractor/Purple/Orange

I haven't been posting in a long while, and I don't really plan on returning, but I felt the need to post this.

Complete Reds team set of:

1) 2012 Topps Chrome
2) 2012 Topps Chrome Refractors
3) 2012 Topps Chrome X-Fractors
4) 2012 Topps Chrome Purple Refractors
5) 2012 Topps Chrome Orange Refractors

Why do I like this set so much? Firstly, it's a 9-card set. I don't need to explain why that is ideal. Seven of the nine have been an All Star. One player is an MVP. One player can throw a baseball 105 miles per hour. Also, 2012 is the year I reconnected with my childhood hobby. Good stuff.

On to the cards and their dusty goodness.

Go Reds.

Not Dead, Not Back, Still Collecting, in Desperate Need of HOFers

As per the title, I am not dead, I am not blogging again (though I've been reading all y'all's), and I'm still collecting my beloved Reds.

I have been trying to complete a Hall of Fame binder. It's been oddly difficult. I am down to 13 needs. If any of you have a card of any of these guys, PLEASE SEND THEM TO ME. I never have a lot of trade bait, but I'll do my best to send ya some vintage or some minis or something.

Why is it so hard to find cards of HALL OF FAMERS??? Bah. Help a brother out.

I could also use a non-horizontal Happy Chandler. I prefer all these to be the same orientation.
