    Another NewFrog in my army. (Lookup group of frogs, they're called an army)

    Rootbeer! This is a killer color for a frame, and actually my first example of it. I don't know the subtleties between matte rootbeer, 'standard' rootbeer, or any other of the rootbeer frames, but I feel like any would make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    These are also the best example of Gold Iridium I've got. Much more yellow to the color, closer to the vibrance/brilliance of 24k! There are 5 frames with gold lenses in this collection now, and you can see the rootbeer (front and center) is pretty sleek comparatively. I know some of it is the angle and light, but they really are the brightest and most opaque.

    And they came with a box!

    And they came with a bag. The worst micro bag I've ever seen. It has a hole, stains, and it's so crusty it can stand up! Not even going to try and salvage it, straight into the garbage. What's even more strange about the bag is that the pair is in such great condition, tight hinges, no scratches, just a little icon wear.

    Thanks! The goal of 2013 is to get the last 3.

    It feels good to get excited as getting all 11 draws closer.

    Congrats on that pickup and getting closer to completing the army.

    And that micro bag? I think you need to disinfect yourself after touching it. Yuck!

    You have the Texas Tea, and sold the white, correct? What do you have coming?

    Don't hesitate to give me a heads up, even if it's one I have. As you can see from my matte clear and tortoise I don't mind doubles on these. Even if they're damaged I'd like parts, especially lenses. I've got a good set of matte black and matte clear arms, and a good crystal black orbital in reserve.

    I would really like to get 2 or 3 of the grey polarized, since it's both one I need and probably one that would get worn the most.

    I think my most expensive pair is the NIB matte clear, which marc2040 won on eBay Germany and shipped over for me. But I feel as I draw closer to the end my willingness to spend might go up dramatically. When I had 3 or less (or thereabout) I passed on some, including a grey polarized. Kicking myself for that one now.

    The best part is 5 boxes, and all but the crystal black and one of the tortoise are in very good to like new condition!

    I have always thought about buying a pair of these but never have. How do these fit? Are than other frames that they fit similar too?

    They're big. The frame is a little more minimal than current production models, but they're big. The Ten is likely their closest modern counterpart, but the Frog is a touch taller and not quite as full toward the temples.

    If you do decide to pick one up and it's one I need let me know. I can let a matte clear go in trade for one of the final 3.
