The Golden Ticket

Would have liked to have found one of these in the jumbo box I ripped yesterday! I did pull one of those Bunny Ear short prints but those are looking to be VERY common for a short print. Will try to get some more pics up soon.

2012 Topps Hits DFW

I was finally able to locate some 2012 Topps retail yesterday at the local Joyner World (aka WalMart) and picked up four of the 72 card "blister" packs. They were $9.99 (not $10.48 like on the pre-release material). Did not get any major hits but most of the insert cards look to be nicely done this year. Here are the highlights from the first two packs. They are phone pics, not scans so hopefully the quality is OK.

Well That Didn't Take Long (2012 Topps Variations Found)

Three new variations found (New 2012 Topps Variations Found). Looks like the Pujols variation is the only one not found yet (or at least listed on eBay yet). Also looks like the squirrel card is by far the most common of the variations and yet continues to sell for hundreds of dollars. There are fourteen listed by my count plus one that sold on a best offer for slightly over $300.

January Madness -- 2012 Topps

Well, the madness has already started! $300 (and climbing) for a card no one knows how rare it is yet. I am always fascinated (and a little jealous) of how much some of the first listings of cards from new sets go for. This one will be fun to watch.
