Orange is the chrome refractor

Yeah, I'm mainly a hockey guy but I like to pick things up for my Blue Jays collection.

And, recently I had a chance to do just that.

Colby of Cardboard Collections was giving away some cards.There was one card that caught my eye.

2011 Topps Chrome Orange Refractor J.P. Arencibia  RC # 182

I've bought from him before and he sure knows how to package. Three cards in a penny sleeve, in a top loader, in a team bag and wrapped in a sheet of paper.

Now to find J.P.'s orange teammates..

JJ--Good Times

If you're of a certain vintage, this makes sense (or not--it does in my mind) Anyhow, this has nothing to do with this post.

Except for this return from an e-mail request. From J.J.

Signed business card from Jeremy Jacobs, owner of the Boston Bruins. Forbes ranks him as the 481st richest person in the world.

I'm guessing Marilyn is his assistant and prints off his e-mails. Again, I'm guessing she wrote Enjoy. And I'm hoping she didn't sign the card.

But, for free, a good way to expand my hockey autograph collection.
