I’m finally getting around to sorting out the cards I’ve accumulated over the past several months while I was busy with work and kids. A few months late, here are the top 5 cards I got out of my 2012 Topps Update Series HTA jumbo box break. It’s a decent haul, but I’m a little disappointed about the autograph card.
Finally, Topps made a decent manufactured relic set. I hate manufactured relics, as they are really just cheap made-in-China baubles attached to a card. But a set of Hall of Famers with replicas of their Hall of Fame plaques attached? I can see myself collecting that.
With the 2013 season around the corner, I’m really psyched to see what Strasburg can do with a full season. And it’s always refreshing to pull a Black or Gold card of a star player.
Nice looking jersey card. Blue looks much nicer than white.
I probably would have missed this short print if I hadn’t gotten 2 other Ryan Braun base cards from the box.
All the other cards I got from this box are nice, but I’m really an autograph collector, and I’m a little bit disappointed to find a 26-year-old minor-league middle relief pitcher as my autograph. At least his autograph looks interesting. Any Hamburger fans out there wanna trade?
