Good luck, and don't forget that I'll buy every Middlebrooks you pull! :)!

KingTaco77 10-03-2012 01:20 PM

You get a free baby with every 6-case purchase? :D Good luck with the break!

mainerunr 10-03-2012 01:28 PM

Good luck. You've got lots of sorting to do.

Topps is really trying new things to woo customers, I guess.

I'd be careful, I think that baby might be smushing some corners.

Wow! Human Box Toppers. Topps has really brought it to another level. Good Luck!

Sushiyoshi 10-03-2012 01:48 PM

I have the same garbage can in the same area of the kitchen!

That's smart, get her ripping wax early and you will have a co-conspirator for life.

lol if it's a boy...which I am kinda leaning toward, honestly. Tough call actually.

calculusdork 10-03-2012 02:25 PM

Not great, not bad. I went through and sorted inserts, and found that I was short 1 mini, one Golden Great, 1 Blockbuster (there are 60 of these for a set of 30, c'mon Topps), and [U]5[/U] Golden Moments. Completing master sets will not be as easy as I had hoped.

Upcoming cases should be faster ... the wife is a pro at this. She ripped 4 boxes in the time it took me to rip 2.

[QUOTE=kmnorton;3414586]I will gladly take that Cain relic if you are dealing![/QUOTE]

Probably put it on the bay unless you make me a really nice offer ... no clue what to sell it for!

darklodus 10-03-2012 02:38 PM

neahcrow 10-03-2012 02:54 PM

My two cases were not nearly as good as many I've seen (but still decent) and were better than yours. I'm sure you have good things coming in the next few cases!!!! Good luck!! :)

Is it me, or does it seem like a Hamburger auto is in every case? Thanks for reserving the Konerko relic for me. :)

neahcrow 10-03-2012 03:22 PM

2nd case was pretty good- I'd say that's close to par of my 2 cases.

stang66dad 10-03-2012 03:33 PM
