2002 Topps Series 2 Hobby Edition

Welcome back to the Pack Rip Cafe. Today we are back to baseball with a pack of 2002 Topps. I grabbed 2 of these out of the Vend-O-Pack machine a while back. I will do one here and one over on A Pack To Be Named Later.

2002 Topps Series 2 Hobby Edition

#486 Kyle Farnsworth (Cubs)
#447 Scott Speizio (Angels)
#551 Ugeth Urbina (Red Sox)
#493 Mark Johnson (White Sox)

No great shakes on the first four.

Prospects RC #679 Chris Tritle (A's)
#445 Orlando Hernandez (Yankees)
#524Terry Adams (Phillies)

 Ho Hum, well at least a Yankee for the book.

#471 Brady Anderson (Indians)
#633 Jermaine Dye (A's)
#432 Erubiel Durazo (D-Backs)

I do like these older sets when I see players on teams I didn't know they played on. Dye and Anderson in this group.

A couple of the backs.

Total Cards:
Teams Represented: 9
Rookie Cards:
 1 (Tritle) 
Sub Sets:
1 (Prospects)
Keepers for Me:
 1 (Hernandez)

Front Design: 7.75 out of 10 Nice in game pictures , nice design, team logo, not a great color for the borders.
Back Design:
 8 out of 10 Nice design, team logo, good player fact, full career stats, easy to read print, same not so great color for the borders.
Player Selection: 5 out of 10  Fair

FINAL OVERALL RATING: Pop Out to third base. No Mets, inserts, parallels, or hits. One Yankee puts the bat on the ball but not much comes of it. Not a great pack overall.
