Another set bites the dust...

2012 Topps Series 2 is done.  Finally.  I have a wantlist up for the Update series, I think I need about a third of the set to finish off this years flagship.

For those who don't feel like checking my wantlist, here's a list of what I need for update...


What left me scratching my head about the final card that I needed to finish series 2 was the thought that I had seen the card before when it arrived in the mail last week.

Here's the card I needed...

Here's why I thought I had seen it before:


OK good, I wasn't going crazy.  Don't need it for the insanity though...any fans of the north siders out there need it?  If so, drop a comment and I'm sure we can work something out.

Likely not going to reach the goal of 25 sets completed by the end of December, but I know that I have at least made some progress this year, especially on some older sets that I've been trying to clean up for a long time.  Nineteen is not a bad number...

There's always 2013.....

Thanks for reading, Robert


  1. Congrats, Robert! I busted a lot of update, so I should be able to help you out.

    I'll let you know when I'm able to sit down and sort through everything.

    19 is MOST impressive....

  2. I'd be interested in the Rizzo. I have some extras from update that I can cross reference with your list when I get home.

    1. OAC....the Rizzo has been put aside for you...send me an email when you get a chance

  3. Hey Robert,
    I have these from your needs list:
    Let me know which ones you need after you completed deals with Ryan and Once a Cub and I'll send them your way.

  4. I never noticed how REALLY bad that Rizzo photoshop job is. Not just the ridiculously small and misplaced logo, but the helmet color is far too dark.

    Strange they never shop out the mark of the beast, though. I contend Nike and other companies have a side deal with the card manufactures to make sure their logos are seen.
