Hello all. Things around The Cafe and The Buffet have been crazy busy so posts have been sparse but I found a little time to show off this Topps Update Rack Pack I scored last week. To save some time I am not going to type every card out but all cards are pictured so you can click on them to enlarge the images.
2010 Topps Update Jumbo Rack Pack
A Strasburg but I still haven't gotten the stupid #661 out of any of the packs I have opened so far.
I like the All-Star subset this year, It fits in with the overall set design unlike in some years past.
And now a surprise..........
Andrew Bailey 2010 All-Star workout jersey card. (A's)
A Hit!! It's always fun to get a hit from a loose pack but I don't collect this particular player or team so he's up for trade too.
BY THE NUMBERS:Teams Represented: 20
35 33 (due to relic)
Rookie Cards: 4
Sub Sets: 3 (All-Star)
Parallels: 1 (gold /2010)
Hits: 1 (Baily Jersey)
Keepers for Me: 6 (3 players, 2 inserts, 1 gold /2010)
Front Design: 8 out of 10 Good pictures, nice design.
Back Design: 8 out of 10 Nice design, full career stats, good use of team colors, player picture, good factoid about player.
Player Selection: 7.5 out of 10 Good, Nice mix of stars and rookies.
FINAL OVERALL RATING: RBI Triple into the right field corner. A fun pack to open, a hit, some inserts I needed, gotta be a big hit.
