Thoughts on 2009 Topps (Box Break)

Posted in Box / Pack Break, Newspaperman with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2009 by Cardboard Icons

2009toppsI hit the hobby shop today and purchased my box of 2009 Topps baseball like many others did and let me just say that I’m pretty pleased with what the products has to offer this year.

Anyhow, after much though (I pondered a box of 08 UD Goudey, but turned it down) I decided to take the tame route and go for five packs: 1 Goudey, 2 Bowman Draft and 2 Topps Chrome. Continue reading

109_0808Had to stop by Wal-Mart today to buy some shipping boxes, so I made the usual trip to the card area. There was nothing new, but I decided to flip through the “new” 3-Pack Wal-Mart specials. This one caught my eye because it included a pack of 2006 Bowman Draft in addition to the always-fun 2008 Topps Chrome. For $5.97, I was intrigued. Continue reading
