2014 Topps Randomness

I picked up a random bunch of 2014 Topps base cards on eBay for less than a buck.  Nothing special.  It’s basically the equivalent of a cheap pack.  Although, I really like the photo on the Henderson Alvarez card from his no-hitter.  It was a strange game because the Marlins scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth.

It's Just Opening Day

I picked up a 2014 Topps Opening Day card of Everth Cabrera on eBay recently.  I already owned the blue parallel so I figured I might as well own the base card too.  I think Opening Day has got to be the best value out of the various brands.  It sure beats a pack of Bowman Chrome.

Pack Break: 2009 Topps

I ripped open a pack of 2009 Topps recently.  I never bought a lot of this product, but I really like the design.  This was a decent pack.  The highlights of the pack include a Nolan Reimold rookie card (with corner ding), Ryan Langerhans Gold Card, and Mariano Rivera Toppstown card.  It’s always a good pack when Mo makes an appearance.

K-Rod in Orange

I picked up a 2013 Topps Update card of Francisco Rodriguez in an Orioles uniform on eBay.  He is now with the Brewers and more importantly my fantasy team.  I actually picked him up as a free agent.  Now he has 17 saves.  I was actually offered David Price in trade for K-Rod.  Because I’m a saves whore, I declined.
