An unlikely pair of Yankee blue refractors

I still love refractors. No matter how plentiful they become and worthless in the eyes of collectors, these shiny versions of certain Topps manufactured cards still blow me away. That is why I sometimes purchase small lots of refractors at discount prices. A few years back I picked up a lot of blue refractors and among the lot were these two 2006 Bowman Chrome blue refractors of AJ Burnett and Nick Swisher. Who would have thought that three years later they would end up being teammates for one of the most stories franchises.
