I am a bit behind other bloggers but I finally got my hands on some 2011 Topps Baseball, four hobby packs to be exact.
I am going to build the Mets team set like last year and the Kurt Suzuki card is going to my PC.
A bunch of inserts I pulled. I am already sick and tired of Stephen Strasberg.
And the madness begins again.
The Diamond gimmick/ 60th anniversary seems to be decent gimmick for Topps this year. Collectors love shiny cards and the diamond anniversary parallels are definitely shiny. I know a lot of people are trying to build the set and I’m not so all my diamond parallels are for trade as I pull them. Finally I don’t really know what to think about the base design this year but it always takes awhile for it to sink in. I like simple designs but my first thoughts were they are a little boring. What do you guys think?
Oh don’t forget to save those wrappers as wrapper redemptions are all the rage these days.
