Checklist Chipaway: Topps HD Image Alex Rodriguez

I have now completed the HD Image insert set from Topps HD.  This was difficult because a)the cards are expensive and hard to find, and b) Topps numbered these as if there were supposed to be 20 cards in the set.  As far as I can tell, they only made 10.   This week I got the last card I needed- A-Rod:

 Here is the full set:

I have some 2001 Topps HD base cards in transit, and that will pretty much complete my “master” set of 2000 and 2001 Topps HD.  There is only one insert set I still need.  There were a couple of relic and auto insert sets, but those are either way too expensive, or flat out impossible to find.  Once I knock out the other insert set that I can actually handle, (“Clearly Refined” it’s called), HD will officially be off the books for me.  Yippee.
