~ I want to express my gratitude to Topps for making sure its Topps Town promotion was up and running on time as announced. Last week I expressed my disappointment with Topps for not having the promotion active on the released date (Feb. 4). Instead, Topps had this banner pictured above telling users that the 2009 Topps Town codes would be active on Feb. 13.

Well today is Feb. 13 and I am having so much fun with Topps Town, I can hardly pry myself away from the computer.~

Ah, who am I kidding. If you haven’t tried to enter any codes into ToppsTown.com today, don’t bother. The damn thing is still not working. Continue reading

2008agbaseballiconscampanellaMy mail man came extra early today and he might as well could have been Santa Claus. In the mail were two packages from fellow bloggers Mario from Wax Heaven and  Greg at Night Owl Cards … AND my three boxes of Topps Gallery, which I wrote about here.

Because I’m a fan of making things right, I’m going to show off the cards that were sent to me by these fellow bloggers before even discussing the Topps Gallery hobby boxes, which are still sitting here in their factory wrappers.

First, let’s look at the amazing stuff Mario sent me.
