2009 Topps Baseball Five Pack Break

Here’s the guts from a 5 pack break of 2009 Topps Baseball.  Let me know if you need anything here.  I am mainly looking for Josh Hamilton cards (surprising, I know) or cards for the sets I am working on.

298 – Jonathan Van Every
318 – Manny Acta
326 – Manny Ramirez Post Season Highlights
Insert Cards
ToppsTown Josh Hamilton – Yep!  This is the 200th different card in my Josh Hamilton collection, and I pulled it myself!  Sure, its only a one per pack insert, but it still counts.  Nothing better than pulling your own guy from a pack of cards.

As for my overall thoughts on the product, if you are still with me.  A vast improvement over last year’s base Topps.  The basic card design is a huge improvement, and the photography is almost on par with Upper Deck.  I don’t think Topps has even been even close to UD in term’s of photography for their base designs in quite some time, if ever.  2009 Topps is what it is.  A low end product, with not many surprises, either positive or negative.

    So I will assume you need the Hamilton base cards? I can send those along Tuesday since the Post Office is closed here Monday. E-Mail me and let me know.

    Nice pull on the jersey card, even if you don’t like him. Trade bait for something you want.
