I couldn't wait for the box to come in the mail so I went to the Baseball Card Store today to check out the goods. I was going originally to pick up a couple of cards Dave said he had for me, and I had planned on buying a pack of something for funsies.
I bought 2 2010 Topps Series 2 Jumbo packs from a fresh box that I opened myself, so odds were totally in my favor. I picked a special box and opened the pack second from the bottom instead of the last one like I usually do. Here is what was in pack one (Mickey Mantle wrapper):
(pack damaged A-Rod card not included in scan because it made me mad, also note missing silver in Topps logo on Yankees card. Also to be noted, the last pack on each side had Dustin Pedroia so I couldn't have bought them anyway.)
Miguel Cabrera gold
Pablo Sandoval 3D
So, my feeling about pack one was way off. I was happy with the Yankees World Series card, but whatever. Onto pack 2, which was picked second from the bottom, Babe Ruth wrapper.
Luke Hochevar gold
A card my mom would have NEVER thrown away.
Chris Coughlan 3D
Ubaldo Jimenez July 4th Commemorative hat logo card
I'm happy with the packs I got, and very happy with the hat card. I like the look and feel of the card and think it was a cool idea, however I hate manufactured patches so this is going on eBay to be flipped for a Cano/Lind of possibly the same variety.
The 3D cards are pretty awesome, they are like new age Sportflics and are a nice insert that we haven't seen 40 times already. While I like them alot, I hope that cards don't look like this in 2020.
There will be a more comprehensive review of the set once we break some boxes, from this small I am digging Series 2.
