I've had a very rough November, as you can probably tell. I've barely got around to posting, and this is my third post for the entire month of November, which is pretty pathetic.
However, with the next few days of events, I have a feeling I will try to get the post count for this month up by a lot. For now, however, here are two rackers of Update Series.
316- Ian Krol. And right off the bat, someone I've never heard of.
63- David Murphy, with a very pedestrian-looking photo. This is unsportsmanlike for Topps, as they've always given David Murphy the best, most awesome photos in the past.
37- Leury Garcia
33- Grady Sizemore, who will likely be sticking around in Philly for another year.
59- Brandon McCarthy, who was a great pickup for the Yanks.
58- What will likely be Raul Ibanez' last flagship Topps card. Sucks that it looks so pedestrian.
69- Dellin Betances, who people are saying will be the next Mariano Rivera.
319- Ricky Nolasco, the only good pitcher in Minnesota. (except for Glen Perkins, but he's a closer)
127- David Phelps. Due to a lack of options, this guy may end up being the fifth starter for the Yankees next year. Gulp.
251- Ike Davis, who was juuuuust released from the Pirates yesterday. Welp.
3- Tom Wilhelmsen
162- YOENIS CESPEDES, who hopefully will get back to his old self.
208- Joakim Soria. No comeback is more appreciated than this guy's.
133- Chris Young. Okay, except for maybe this guy's.
166- Andrew Romine, one of the new wave of backup-postion-player Romines.
303- Jarred Cosart
26- Mookie Betts. Nope, not even coming close to the other Mookie's awesomeness levels.
Power Players insert of Adam Jones. I really like this insert set.
Future is Now insert of Jon Singleton.
89 mini of Alexei Ramirez
ASG Access insert of Koji Uehara.
272- Mark Ellis
266- Drew Smyly.
221- Gregory Polanco rookie!
20- Gregory Polanco Rookie Debut. How about that?
100- Jose Abreu cl
216- Andrew McCutchen AS
299- Charlie Blackmon AS. Great job on the photo, Sooz, assuming you picked this one of course.
259- Craig Kimbrel AS.
247- Tony Watson AS.
234- Felix Hernandez AS. Great photo again.
253- Kevin Kiermaier Rookie
290- Cam Bedrosian. Son of a Phillie Cy Young winner.
148- Kyle Parker
36- Vance "The Vanimal" Worley
40- Stephen Vogt'
42- JD Martinez, star of the Tigers offense this year.
67- Scott Van Slyke. Glad to see he's still hanging in there.
257- Eduardo Escobar
75- Nick Punto
131- Chris Denorfia. Personally, I'm happy he's out of San Diego.
280- Cole Gillespie
135- Jake Odorizzi
236- Jerome Williams. Looks like Topps couldn't get a shot of him as a Phillie.
240- Aaron Sanchez
172- Tucker Barnhart
Hanley Ramirez Power Players
Michael Wacha Future is Now
Fond Farewells of Omar Vizquel. Glad Topps could finally give us a photo of Vizquel in a Jays uniform.

57- Jacob DeGrom RD
250- Yu Darvish CL
320- Koji Uehara AS
97- Salvador Perez AS

doubles to end the pack
Nice amount of variety and Yankees. Still, a lot of boring inserts.
