I finally made it to my local card shop and picked up some packs of the new Topps and UD baseball products. Here is the 411...
Topps Leads Off...
David Wright Students Work Hard & Get Cards (Pay attention kids!! Not too sure of David's educational level but let's just buy the premise.)
Own the Game Brad Penny
Classic Combos (Kearns & Young)
Ryan Klesko (Losing a ball in the shade)
Jeff Clement RC
Opee-Chee Chase Utley
Well, that was a stimulating bust.
Onto UD 2008 Baseball...
Mark Reynolds Auto!!
Season Highlight Mark Bueherle (too bad we weren't playing Sox or No Sox)
Sam Fuld RC
Frank Thomas (and he's actually stretching his MASSIVE thighs!!)
Boof Bonser (Dude, you're an adult. Lose the cute Aussie nickname already)
I also got a pack of something called Topps Trading Card History.
Griffey, Rollins, Wright, Chin Lung-Hu and Ryan Howard in vintage Topps designs.
Cool...but Chin Lung-Hu? Really??
Overall, I prefer the Topps but it was good to finally bust some Baseball again. Thanks for watching kids!!
