2013 Topps, Now I'm getting excited !

A stop at Target after work tonight was well worth it as I found 2013 Topps waiting !
The base cards have a crisp look with very sharp photos.
I like the player names. Much easier to read than the last few years.
I especially like the Giants World Series card.
Excellent shot !

I also like Saltalamacchia and the Pirate boys in their two different jerseys.

There was a lot of variety in the one rack pack I bought.
Tim Lincecum " Calling Card " insert.
Howie Kendrick Red Parallel
Chasing History may be an insert set I go for, these are pretty cool!
The green sparkly thing is alright too.
There were three red parallels and three "Chasing History" cards in this pack.
The names are harder to read on these inserts.
This years minis are based on the 1972 Topps set.
 I'm sure there will be many collectors chasing these.
The Million Dollar Chase !
Rack up 57 straight hits and win !!!
Will have to check out the website for all the details.

One last card for today.
Giancarlo Stanton " Chasing the Dream " insert.
I really like the set so far.
I think Topps did a good job.
I am a little disappointed in the fact that there were no Tribe cards.
Zero. Zilch. None ! 
The whole checklist doesn't look too good for me this year.
Oh well, it'll all be OK when the Indians win the World Series this year !!


  1. I'm jealous, I stopped at my target tonight as well but no 2013. It looks like Topps hit the nail on the head this year. Those Buccos are looking sharp.

  2. Same here. Two different Targets, no luck.
