2017 Topps Series 1, Target
12 cards per pack
No long commentary about Topps and their products, I'm just gonna show what I pulled, and note a few observations.
Some interesting things going on in those two cards above:
Everyone else cheers a Cubs win, this guy chugs his beer.
I'm not a fan of this years design, but the photography is really good.
The Jean Segura card is cool, you can see the dirt flying off his glove from the scoop.
Ah, 1987 retros again, this time with fancy silver embossing.
These have an almost plastic feel about them.
The Gold Glove card is a Target only pull.
Cant say I've paid too much attention to these anti-theft inserts, but I think this is the first time I've noticed them using the brown cardboard.
12/12 cards + 1 anti-theft
When I heard a while ago that Sean Rodriguez was in a car accident, it didn't dawn on me that it was this Sean Rodriguez. Then I saw this card and I thought, "He's still in baseball?" (thinking he's been around forever, I remember him with the Angels, a long time ago, thought he had retired). Then I see on the back of his card that this is only his 10th season.
Hey, how about that? I pulled a used dime-box card with a bronze-foil embossed REDISCOVER TOPPS! Compared to some I've seen, this one is in really good shape.
13/12 cards, Bronze Rediscover Topps
Beltre's card has my head swimming, as I stumble off to the left.
Miguel Sano's Rainbow Foil parallel scanned really, really nicely, almost looks 3-D.
12/12, and not a single Angels card in three packs.
So, again, the jury is still out as to whether or not I buy any more Topps this year.
