Well, the wife and I were out and about today, and I decided to grab my share, 6 packs worth.
I can honestly say now that I will not be collecting 2012 Topps Heritage, at least in set form. It's not because I didn't pull any SPs or card variations or error cards or RCs of players that are on 14 damn cards.
Maybe it's the fact that I see "the first card" that guys have been pulled from packs are guys like Jeter, and here's the first card I saw:
Don't get me wrong here, I pulled a couple of cards that I really did like. Like this Chrome card of Yovani Gallardo that will fit right in with the insanity set (I've not forgotten about that just in case you're wondering)
I was also very intrigued by the sticker cards, I pulled one of Starlin Castro of the Cubs, which is earmarked for Potch...
I also pulled a couple of inserts, one a Derek Jeter NAP card (AJ, I sent you an email), and a Then and Now card of Yaz/Cabrera
Topps Heritage 2012 for me, will be trade bait. I'll add it to the 2012 Topps tab at the top later tonight, and if you're looking for an easier way to complete your set, or cherry pick your favorite teams cards, just let me know and I'm sure we can swing some kind of trade.
I'll probably buy a few more packs here and there, but for me this year, Heritage is just going to be 3 things:
- Blue Jays to add to the collection, of course I didn't pull any today.
- Chrome cards that will add to the insanity.
- Trade bait in order to try and complete other sets that I'm working on.
Thanks for reading, Robert
