Wish me luck!!!

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

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

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

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

Hahahaha, lots of funny comments there. Yes, baby came with the purchase.

CASE 1:

Gold Sparkle (notable)
- Josh Hamilton x2
- Bryce Harper (horrible T/B centering)

Presidential Predictors
- Obama (Missouri, Wyoming, lol)
- Romney (Massachusetts, New Mexico)

All-Star Relics
- David Ortiz
- Paul Konerko (Mike, got your name on it)
- Dan Uggla
- Ian Kinsler
- David Price (PC baby!)
- Matt Cain GOLD #10/50

Golden Debuts Autos
- Yonder Alonso
- Wilin Rosario
- Mark Hamburglar (e.g. he is burgling my money away)

Golden Moments Autos
- Salvador Perez
- Andrew Carignan (damaged bottom-right corner)
- Ed Kranepool (damaged bottom-right corner, different box)

Award Winners Rings
- Mickey Mantle
- Lou Gehrig
- Carl Yastrzemski

Hall of Fame Plaques
- Babe Ruth
- Roberto Clemente
- Carl Yastrzemski

Silk Collection
- Jonny Gomes #46/50

SP Variations
- Bryce Harper (portrait, suit)
- Ichiro (bowing)
- Josh Hamilton (high-fives)
- David Ortiz (high-fives)
- Andrew McCutchen (suit)
- Joey Votto (posing)

Black Border #/61
- Lou Marson
- Phil Coke
- Brian Duensing
- Shelley Duncan
- Manny Acosta
- Matt Guerrier


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 5 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.

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.

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