2010 Topps Tribe and a huge mail day.

Get ready 2010 here we go !!!!
Let the games begin for the new baseball card season. I don't know how this is going to pan out with just one licensed product line.We've been used to so many choices in the past. They say everything goes in cycles so we'll have to wait and see what the future brings.And what the unlicensed products deliver. Maybe an upcoming generation of young kids will catch the baseball card train again and other brands will return.

The new Topps.
I'm kind of on the fence with this new look.I do like the bright colors, although some better than others.The Indians always look good with red so I am happy with the Tribe cards. The player names are hard to read though.That would be my biggest complaint. I bought 5 packs.3 for me and 1 for each son.

Justin Masterson. My first 2010 Indian card.

I did get a nice trio of Topps Town cards including the Halladay gold.

This is from the Legendary Lineage insert set.
LL3 comparing Babe Ruth with A-Rod.

After Masterson,this may be my favorite card of these three packs.
The Cards Your Mother Threw Out # CMT-11.
My boyhood hero,Mickey Mantle. Although my Mother never threw this one out because I never had it !

Dexter Fowler,#TR26, from the Turkey Red set.

Peak Performance
Ichiro gets 200 hits in 9 consecutive seasons to set a new record.

Cool ! A card give-a-way.
I'll be looking for more of these.Maybe I can get the real Mantle

The mini Red Backs.
Mariano Rivera # 8 of 45.

And Topps Attax will be back !

A few other , "interesting to me" cards.

Rick Porcello.
A good start last year for this Tiger hurler.
Can he repeat?
I love this shot of Rollins trying to avoid the tag by Ryan Theriot.

The Franchise History cards are very interesting as they compare team records to current leaders. Hopefully there will be one for Cleveland.

Here's one for Night Owl !!
Matt Kemp trying to climb the wall.

Finally,as Stephen Drew dives into the base,the ball is lined up perfectly with his helmet.

This is what I'll be doing all week-end!!

I came home tonight to 3 brown mailers and a small priority box
stuffed with Tribe cards!!
Plus, I got trapped by the promise of GOLD !!

  1. Awesome. I've seen very few 2010 Dodgers on the blogs, so far. Thanks for showing a nice card of Kemp.
