Mini-Break: 2012 Topps Series I Jumbo Packs

So I went to this card shop yesterday with the intent on getting some free hockey cards for National Hockey Card Day and it turned out he had none. I know it wasn’t the “official” day but he wasn’t open on the official day so I showed up an hour after he opened yesterday to find he had none.

Now I’ve never been a fan of his card shop because he never has any product at all and today was no different. However, he did have 5 Jumbo packs left from a box of 2012 Topps Series I baseball and I hadn’t been able to open that product yet, so I grabbed them and some needed supplies. As with other mini-breaks, it’s not a full box so I’m not fully reviewing the product but I will add some thoughts and pictures in.

Overall, I wasn’t a fan of the design when I saw the mock ups but they do look better in person. The insert design is average at best for Topps but it is filled with way too many Yankees…and way too many doubles. Collation was a huge problem in my 5 Jumbo packs and that’s something I hate.

I was able to pull the mandatory 1 Golden Giveaway card per jumbo pack as well as Week #3 and #8 of the Topps Prime 9 promotion. So overall, not bad for the price he gave me per Jumbo ($10).

I still don’t like the shop though.

Here are the highlights…

    Not bad. A couple of hits from some jumbo packs. Love the Goldenness to it. i have only been able to try one pack so far of retail. Nuttin good for me. I am mainly a football guy. But every year I like to try my hand at the first 2012 product. And Topps baseball is always that choice.

    Also nothing wrong with some extra Yankees. But getting a ton of base doubles isn’t
