Welcome back baseball card collectors !!!
So , i'll start my BBcard season one month late with my "must have"
2013 Topps Series 1
What happened in the off-time for european card collectors?
USPS raised their rates to europe (and canada),
that means i have to pay at least 1,50$ per pack shipping.
Most of the single pack sellers on ebay take 2 or more $ for one pack.
In case of Topps Series one , a pack cost me 4 bucks ^^
It's really hard to continue with the hobby with conditions like this.
Anyways ... For my first look i ordered 4 packs of the hobby edition.
2013 Topps Series One
The design is really cool i think.
You see color differences for any team, that makes them more individual then
the 2012 edition.
Let's start with the great Buster Posey ...
Buster Posey - Base Card 128
Buster Posey - Base Card 128 (Back)
The career chase section is a little pathetic ^^
Take a look at it , it's woth it!
Some more base cards for you to get a closer look at the design
Cliff Lee and Joe Mauer - Base Cards
David DeJesus - Base Card (no Variation)
This years variation set is called " Out of Bounds "
My first thought of this funny card was VARIATION !! But nope it's just the base card
The Out of Bounds variations all revolve around a theme: players making catches while up against a wall. The back of these variations contains the numerical code that ends in 3022, while the codes for non-variation base cards end in 2820.
but anyway it's a cool card ...
In my 4 first packs i was really lucky as a Mets fan ...
I received 1 Paralell and 1 Insert:
R.A. Dickey - Emerald Foil Paralell
R.A. Dickey - 1972 Mini (Insert)
R.A. Dickey - 1972 Mini (Insert) back
I'm really sad they traded him but the Mets management is another chapter -.-
Even there was no "hit" i'm really satisfied with it ... I like the product so i'll buy some more
maybe some retail hot packs from ebay.
Stay tuned for a Box Break!! I bought the Angels and Nationals spots ...
thanks for reading!
