A while back Matt at Once a Cub hosted a 2012 Topps Series 2 Box Break I which I happily participated. I was able to grab the Yankees and the Tigers. In addition, Matt threw in some cool extras, which were very much appreciated !! I will keep the series 2 overview short, as I guess everybody has seen plenty of those in recent months, and jump quickly to the extras. Here we go!
First up a cool Verlander card, one of the new A Cut Above insert series which I think look pretty neat.
Career Day was also present, here's Mickey ! Not a big fan of these inserts to be honest.
The new Mound Dominance inserts I do like, here's a nice Nolan Ryan !
Matt recently showed off two cool cards on his blog and I showed interest in them. Matt was great and set them aside for me. A cool Archives Rizzuto auto card and a GQ 2012 Pettitte relic !
Matt also send me a few "gold" 2012 Archives, I had never seen those and didn't realize there was a "gold" variation so this was a cool surprise !!
There was also some light in the package !
Let's end with my favourite Yankees pitcher, Mariano Rivera. A numbered blue variation of the 2011 Topps Opening Day set !
Thanks Matt for a nice box break and the awesome extras !!!
