Ebay Finds/Mail Day (aka Topps Delivers)

When I first started seeing scans of 2010 Series 1 Topps I became a bit concerned. Then as time went on and I saw more and more scans I became more and more concerned. Finally, when I got around to busting a jumbo box and put together the set I became really concerned.

I could not remember back to a flagship release from Topps where my personal sub-set collection of cards was not admitting a handful of new members. Players depicted playing "small ball" have always been a part of the hobby. I have enjoyed spending countless hours sorting through boxes and boxes of singles looking for that piece of photographic beauty. I was disheartened to think that Topps had let me down this time.

That all changed when I was trolling eBay looking for some cheaply priced relic cards and happened upon this.....

I just KNEW Topps would be there for me, I just KNEW it could not possibly happen that somehow, somewhere a photog had not snapped a shot of a frackin' bunt!!

Now I can rest until Series 2. Now, I can be happy for a while.

I am a sad, pathetic human being.

I know that.

And, I am okay with that.

Thanks Topps, thanks eBay and thanks, most of all, to Mr. Mailman.
