2 $10 boxes of 2014 Topps Series 2

Topps keeps me going. I don't keep buying it because I adore it. I buy it because it's Topps, and I want to find as many 'star cards' as possible, before collation basically curtails my quest. So these ten dollar boxes, while nice, are still a tiny bit disappointing to me. Because Topps does that now.

Box #1-
428- Skip Schuaker. Already we have a subpar photoshopping.
368- Kyuji Fujikawa.
365- Dan Uggla, fresh from a stint below the Mendoza line.
369- Erick Aybar
642- Brandon Kintzler
343- Nate Freiman
356- Jose Reyes. Just as a reminder, the last time he led the league in something (triples), he was on the Mets.
537- Madison Bumgarner, who has become the ace in San Francisco, due to inconsistency from Lincecum and Cain.
611- Patrick Corbin, whose team is hurting after he left for the 60 day.
337- Zach Walters
398- Adam Jones. O's fans have a few days left to cram all the All Star votes this guy's way. He deserves them, too.
