2009 Topps Update & Highlights Box Break

If you follow my Twitter,you know something kind of neat came out of this box.  If you don’t follow my Twitter, you should, because then you would know stuff like that.

Here’s the goods, starting with the Hamiltons:

And the card I was really, really hoping to pull:

I pulled one of the SPs out of this box, Johnny Mize:

You get a Chrome Rookie Refractor as a box topper, I got Wilkin Ramirez:

Black Parallel /58 of Omar Quintanilla:

Silk Collection of Mark Teixera, numbered /50, but badly damaged.  How is Topps for damaged cards?  Anyone have any experience?

Team Letter Patch:  Pee Wee Reese/50:

Brandon Inge ASG Jersey (these cards look great!):

And now, my first ever pack-pulled 1/1:  Sidney Ponson Parallel:

But that’s not it.  Although the 1/1 was the lowest numbered card I pulled, I still like this next card just a little bit more.

Carlos Pena Autographed / Jersey /25:

Most of these are available.  Probably looking for Hamiltons in return.

    Wow, that Pena card is awesome! I don’t know what I have in regards to Hamiltons but is there anything else that could bring it my way in a trade?

    That’s a great looking break! I’d be interested in trading for the Inge jersey, although I’m going to have to see what kind of Hamiltons I have in return…I bought the Wilkin Ramirez the other day, otherwise I’d be all over that too.

    Totally jealous of the Pee Wee Reese patch.

  7. Greg A. says:

    Nice break! Was this a regular hobby box? I got a jersey in my first one, and one parallel, but not anything else like the team patch, silk, or auto/jersey!

    I’d love to trade for the Mize variation. Let me know if you are up for that. I will search for some Hamiltons and I’ll see what I have from the A&G. You can contact me at dkrill@rochester.rr.com
