National Chicle

May 1, 2010

This seems to be the hot product out right now.  It is getting a lot of favourable reviews.

I don’t think I am a fan.  Granted, this is simply from looking at online pics (the Hamilton singles I have picked up haven’t arrived yet), but it isn’t really working for me.  The picture on the Hamilton card looks nice, but for me this product doesn’t have the ‘wow’ factor I was expecting.

I think Topps got lazy by using the same pictures from the base set on the relics.

Back on the baseball front, it appears Josh Hamilton’s power stroke might be returning a little bit.  He has three homers, but his RBIs are way down.  His average is OK, but hopefully he pulls things together again.
