2010 Topps Heritage Blasters are LIVE

After much searching, it appears that the 2010 Topps Heritage Blasters have started to arrive in retail stores. I found two at a Wal-Mart in the San Francisco Bay Area (southeast Fremont). Out of the two blasters I managed to pull two relics (Cristian Guzman Clubhouse Collection jersey and Brooks Robinson Flashbacks stadium seat) and 8 SPs including a super short print Zack Greinke.

On a side note, don’t forget to enter the contest for an original 1958 Topps Hank Aaron / Mickey Mantle card.

2009 Topps: An Inside The Park Home Run

It took me a few years of collecting to really appreciate the images that grace these pieces of cardboard we value so much. And ever since the light went on a while back, I like to study images for what they are … slices of baseball history, as insignificant as they may be.

Well, while sorting my 2009 Topps base cards the other day, something started to happen: I saw a play developing on the cards. This is a bit on the weird side, but I’ve constructed an inside the park sequence using the images from the 2009 Topps set. Enjoy.
