Checklist Chipaway: Topps HD Clearly Refined

Wow, I didn't realize until I started typing this post that other than a handful of relic cards, I'm now 100% done with my 2000-2001 Topps HD Master Set!  I'm not sure what to do now?  I guess I should do a big post showing at least a little of all the parts of this crispy, plasticy set.

The last set I needed was the "Clearly Refined" set, which focused on prospects.  Sure it would be easy in hindsight to make fun of the guys that went nowhere in this insert set, but that's not my M.O.  Instead, let's give the last three cards I picked up this week a moment in the spotlight:

Pat Burrell had some nice moments probably I guess.  In fact, maybe I shouldn't assume to use the past tense with him.  Is he still playing?  Someone let me know so I don't have to go to the effort of looking it up on my own.  I do remember him being a Met killer.

I did make an effort to look up Ryan Anderson on Google.  Oh brother get this- turns out Google says he is a current basketball player that was drafted in 2008 and doesn't look anything like the guy on the above card.  Either Topps or Google really screwed up. Get a fact checker people and you won't look stupid.

Peter Bergeron name is too difficult to remember so I didn't try to type it in Google.  I don't know anything about him.

But I know these are handsome cards and now I have them all!  Mwwwwahhahahahahahahah.....

Ryan Anderson was nicknamed "the little unit" cause he was supposed to be the next Randy Johnson.. either way great nickname
