Like last year I couldn't help myself and ordered 4 hobby boxes as I love to open packs of wax !! As I have a 1 week delay given the travel distance most cards has already been across the blogosphere (and back) and people are gradually getting tired of seeing more Series 1 basecards (I assume). So therefore, I won't bore you with any basecards and will focus solely on the hits and inserts !
I think that 2013 Series 1 has the best inserts of the last decade, I seem to like them all !! But before we move to the inserts let's start with the hits or actually 1 hit per box..........for me that was.....a redemption.......I am starting to get a bit annoyed with redemption cards. This is my 3rd one and I have never actually received a redemption card (although the Topps site indicates it has "shipped", whatever that may mean....). Nevertheless, it could be a cool card once it arrives somewhere in the future !
Now let's start with the inserts ! One of the most awesome inserts: Cut to the Chase ! Really nice beautiful thick and strong cards ! Box 1 had my first 3, Gwynn, Musial and McCutchen !
Almost as cool are the "The Greats" inserts, really nice thick cards as well. Here are Pujols and Henderson. I noticed they put in a Glavine as well !!! The first Glavine card in a few years I think so great news !! Sadly enough I didn´t pull any yet....
That's not all, Topps put in another nice inserts set, "Calling Card". Really like this one as well (I am starting to sound like a Topps groupie!)
The Chasing the Dream inserts also look nice. I really like the Rizzo as I attended his debut game at the Cubs in which he played very well and had several hits !
Given that I like all the insert sets I am going to chase them all ! A nice challenge for 2013 !
That's it for today, thanks for the visit ! Be on the look out for some cool pulls from box 2 in the coming days!
