Joy of the Completed Insert Set: 2013 Topps Cut to the Chase Inserts

I really enjoyed the glow-in-the-dark inserts in Topps Opening Day from a few years ago but I think my favorite fairly recent insert set has been the 48 Cut to the Chase cards that were included in 2013 Topps Series 1 and 2. Each series got 24 cards of die-cut chromed goodness and they did a great job of including stars without too many misses (sorry Brett Lowrie).

I actually finished the set in March but didn't get them in pages until recently and realized that I had misplaced Paul Molitor's card No. 5. That was the first one of the set that I had and scanned it for my needs list post and since then it has vanished. A quick sportlots.com order later and I have a second Molitor to finally give me the Joy of the Completed Set! 

Here are all 48 cards:

Those are pretty sharp! (pun intended)

Saw a bunch of these over the weekend at the card show I attended. Loved how shiny they were. Very cool.

Did the first Molitor will magically appear after the second arrived?

Not yet and I keep my cards typically sorted by player so maybe I need to check my Yadier Molina and Yoan Moncada cards for a lost Molitor.
