I finally opened my first pack of 2013
Topps.I purchased a 50 card jumbo pack
for the occasion.My first card was that
of Paul Konerko.Other notables base
card included Alex Rodriguez and Albert Pujols.The rest of the base cards were decent.
I like this year’s design.The cards are clean and simple.You have the player name, team name, and
large photo on the front.I’m a fan of
the white background with team colored border.This jumbo pack was full of inserts.I like most of the inserts.Although
I could live with more current players and fewer retired players.I especially like the emerald green
The Million Dollar contest doesn’t really interest me. I have already resigned myself to the fact that I am not going to win the million dollars. Needless to say my contest card is for trade. Overall, I was pretty satisfied with this pack. However, I don’t plan on buying much of this product. I will probably save my money for Allen & Ginter or Topps Heritage.
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
