2012 Topps Baseball Series 2 Jumbo Box Break

Actually it's a box break plus 4, so I could do the wrapper redemption.  Figure I'd get this in before I leave town again.  I've got a few other posts written and scheduled so it won't be 2 weeks of dead air like last time.

So here we go on my 14 Jumbo packs of Series 2.

There are 3 new inserts this series. Mound Dominance, Career Day and A Cut Above. And there are three continuing inserts: the 87 Mini's, Gold Standard, and Gold Futures.  I won't bore you with the inserts you've seen before.
I got six Mound Dominance cards.

Six Career Days. I don't know why but I really like the way this insert looks.
I got 8 A Cut Above. The one missing is the Ryan Braun. I'm a sucker for die cuts. Love'em.

Topps also has some ad cards in the mix advertising some new apps.
Not overly excited about it.
The Bunt cards have some cool art on them though.

I'm not quite sure what this is all about, but I really don't care either.

Now onto the hits.
I got one SP in my 14 Jumbo packs.
Verlanders No-No card.
I was also lucky enough to pull a hit from my 4 extra packs as well and it was a pretty good one.

I won't turn down a Pujols card even if it's a fake relic.

My one real relic card.
My guaranteed Auto.
And this guy...
Too bad Strasmania was two years ago.  But I really do like these ring cards.

That being said.  I'm leaving again for another 2 weeks or so for work. But I'd be open to trading just about everything here. Just realize that I'm probably not going to be the best trading partner for the next couple of months.


  1. Ugh. That Pujols World Series pin makes me ill.

  2. Well, I'd be interested in many of what you show: Pujols pin, Verlander sp, Mantle Cut Above, and maybe the Strasburg and the Ryan.

    Let me see what I have to offer and shoot you an email. Thanks!

    1. I have a Christian Ballard patch card #d/1074, Slaton/Brohm dual threads, and a 1991 Proline autograph of Vinnie Clark. Any interest in those?
