2012 Series 1 Box

I'll be honest: I'm not 100% in love with the flagship set Topps put out this year. But what else am I going to by in February? So, of course, I snagged another blaster of this product.

Guaranteed Patch: Hank Aaron. You can't get much better than that.

Pack 1-
248- Stephen Drew
44- Edwin Jackson. The man isn't even thirty, yet this year will be playing on his eighth MLB team. Matt Stairs, your record is in danger.
Paul O'Niell Golden Moments. Never a huge O'Neill fan, but he sure performed for my Yanks.
Nolan Ryan/Jered Weaver Timeless Talents. Okay, that comparison's pretty apt.
252- Dellin Betances rookie. This is my second copy of Dellin's rookie, and I still have no Jesus Montero rookie.
152- Chad Billingsley
270- Starlin Castro. If he wants to be a Chicago legend, he must stay out of trouble.
59- Rangers ALDS.

Pack 2-
2- Trevor Cahill
153- Mark Melancon
298- Jeff Keppinger. This guy's been everywhere
Cal Ripken Golden Greats. I think I have this one.
Tom Seaver Gold Standard
219- Jordan Pachecho
227- Mike Minor263- Steve Delabar

Pack 3-
261- Kyle Blanks
165- Michael Morse. He's a character.
CC Sabathia mini. I love these cards, but sadly I hate minis.
321- Jason Bourgeois
96- Grady Sizemore. I hope for his sake, and for the sake o my Cleveland fan friend, that he rebounds.
18- Colby Lewis
297- leaders
77- leaders

Pack 4-
265- Aroldis Chapman
257- Seth Smith
60- Hanley Ramirez GOLD SHINY
Gold Futures of Anthony Rizzo
41- Devin Mesoraco
328- John Lackey
148- Chris Getz
329- Allen Craig. His name sounds made up.

Pack 5-
276- Scott Baker
254- Phillip Humber
Classic Walkoffs of Jim Thome, hitting his 500th.
Golden Moments of Prince Fielder
79- Austin Romine rookie. Oh, crappy pack collation. You continue to taunt me so.
327- Mark Kotsay. For God's sakes, STOP PLAYING!
78- Erick Aybar
115- Tommy Hanson. I wish he'd stay healthy

Pack 6-
209- AJ Burnett. Well, this is a moot point.
146- Carlos Gomez
Nolan Ryan Golden Greats
CODE CARD! Let's see what I get:
Pittsburgh Pirates coin. Meh.
Wait! That means I get a free code card-
Oh, crap...a Yankees coin. I already have that one. Happy Trading.
202- Andrew Carnigan
139- Scott Sizemore
57- Yuniesky Betancourt
172- Reed Johnson and the seagulls

Pack 7-

320- Matt Holliday
135- Johnny Cueto GOLD SHINY

64- Michael Martinez
Lou Gehrig Golden Greats. Damn right.
188- Bobby Abreu.317- Tyler chatwood
258- Jon Jay
233- Cardinals win NLCS. Don't remind me.
3- Jamie Garcia.

Pretty underwhelming packs. I wish Topps would stop screwing up the collation, because I'm getting a ton of doubles.
