Collecting The Set – 2013 Topps Series 1

topps_logo_outline-redI was gonna wait until tomorrow to open all my goodies I received in the mail but decided I could open just one!  The package I decided to open was from Jeff Wilk of www.2x3heroes.com.  Jeff emailed me last week in response to my new blog and offered to send some 2013 Topps Series 1 cards that were missing from my collection.  I will be looking through the 2013 Topps Heritage packs I have bought to see if there is anything he needs so I can repay him sooner then later!   Not only did he send a stack of missing cards for my set but also a stack of random San Francisco Giants to add to my collection.  A post about those cards will be coming this weekend.

There were two Chasing History inserts in the package.  I only have the regular Chasing History listed in my 2013 Needs section but will be adding the Chasing History Foils also and see if I can complete that set.  I wasn’t gonna collect these as a set but they have grown on me, I think because of the players that are included are many of the ones I grew up watching.
