For the last three days I've been asking around on different cards sites and forums and doing research looking for this card.

It's a 1999 Bowman Chrome Josh Hamilton Bowman Chrome card number #431 Gold Refractor Rookie numbered to only /25

I've yet to see one on ebay in the 3 years that iv'e been looking for this card, at least when I've checked ebay.

I searched Google and typed in 1999 Bowman Chrome Josh Hamilton Gold Refractor, and on page 6 someone mentioning having a PSA 9 on one of those answer type things, but other then that I saw nothing else about this card.

According to Beckett there's only been 3 sent in for grading

According to PSA population 10 have been sent in all PSA 9's

According to a person I talked to on FCB someone has an ungraded one in a Raleigh, in a card shop.

So the other 11 that're possibly out there are unknown, either in other peoples possesion or still in wax boxes

The wax box that this card is in is the

1999 Bowman Chrome Series 2 Baseball, it has Eric Chavez on the box.

So I may try to pull one out of box, but the odds aren't likely, if I had to guess I'd say there's less then 5 in packs.

So to get to my point if someone reads through all of this, I'm looking to get one of these Hamilton Gold Refractors,

Mainly looking to see if anyone has any info on this card, and to get it out there I'm looking for it.

Does anyone have any information on this card?

Mods please don't move this post!

Patience is the key to finding cards. It took me more then 2 years to
find something I was looking for. So patience grasshopper.

You may want to talk to Bench member AUTaxMan. He put together a complete set of 1999 Bowman Chrome INT REFractors/100. I'm pretty sure he doesn't have the card you are looking for, but I bet he can shoot you a few leads.......

I think I messaged him about the set couple months ago and he mentioned selling it or something, because I searched for the card on photobucket and saw he had it....any other ideas where I can post this though?

The only other sites that I know of in which the extreme "Chromies" inhabit are: Beckett Message Boards and Freedomcardboard.com. If nobody on those sites have any idea of where to find them, then they are probably tucked away for the long haul......

Good luck, and keep us posted if you find one!;)

I have a buddy who was trying to put the 1999 BC Gold Ref set together years ago. I helped him find over 200 cards including the Josh Hamilton, Soriano, Hudson, Mulder, Durazoand Dunn rookies. I do know that he gave up putting the set together and pretty sure he still has the Hamilton card. PM me with what you are looking to pay and I will let him know.

There is a lot of unopened 99 Bowman Chrome 2 out there. I would say that 6-7 have never been pulled.
