Once a Cub Loot

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 !

In addition to the above I received a pile of Topps 2012 Series 2 so if anyone is in need of any series 2 let me know ! So let's have a look at the extras that came in through a semi-trade !

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 !!!


  1. Glad they made the trip safely!

  2. Night Owl was collecting those Stadium Lights cards. They are some nice night game shots.

  3. that gold parallel looks green to me

  4. That Rizzuto autograph is awesome! Always great to add a Hall of Fame autograph to your collection!
