So the wife asks if I can go to Wal-Mart to pick up some stuff she forget when she was grocery shopping . . . reluctantly I agreed. 🙂 It has been a little while since I bought any packs of cards and they had some packs of 2013 Topps Opening Day near the register so I added a few to my cart. I was still about 20% from completing the base set so I figured if I bought two Jumbo Packs I should be able to score a few I needed and have a little fun opening some packs.
I ended up pulling about 1/4 of the base set cards I needed and a few inserts I needed as well.
Here are some of my highlights –
Some RC’s I was missing –
I am always excited to pull a Topps All-Star Rookie, especially one I need –
A few more of my highlights –
When is Alex Rodriguez going to play? He currently has 647 career HRs, which puts him 115 behind Barry Bonds’ all-time record of 762. If I did my math correct using his average of 1 HR every 3.9 games in his career it would take him another 448.5 games to tie the record. He turns 38 in July, which means when healthy and playing he needs to play into his 40’s (about 2 3/4 more seasons) to have a chance.
Here are my current 2013 Topps Series 1 and Opening Day needs. I have acquired quite a few doubles also so if you are looking for some to complete a base set or team set you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
