Thank You for your Service!
While out in Arizona on vacation, I managed to aquire an interesting card for my meager New York Yankees card collection:
I did not know Elway played anything other than football!
Since returning home, I decided to try my luck at some Topps 2010 Baseball Update Series.
These two packs contained 19 base cards, a legends card, a Turkey Red card, a Million Card Giveaway code card plus two Attax cards (small gripe here, I wish Topps would numbers these Attax cards, it would be easier to organize them). These packs presented 18 teams, including a Roy Halladay (US-100) for my Phillies collection. The first pack opened contained a David Wright Attax card, a Vintage Legends Lou Gehrig card and a cool Turkey Red Thurmon Munson card (No. 140). The second pack contained a Nick Markakis Attax card and the Topps Million Card Giveaway car No. TMC-28 (Mike Schmidt).
Overall, I am very pleased with my first impression of the update series, I don't know if I will collect the entire set, but I will definitely try a few more packs in the immediate future.
The other cards in the packs were:
US-6 - Adam Ottavino - Cardinals
US-24 - NL East Origins (Checklist 6 of 10)
US-39 - Kila Ka'Aihue - Royals
US-60 - Miguel Tejada - Padres
US-74 - Ryan Church - D-Backs
US-126 - Elvis Andrus - Rangers AL Allstar
US-154 - Jose Guillen - Giants
US-164 - Gaby Sanchez - Marlins
US-179 - Juan Pierre - White Sox
US-181 - J.P. Arencibia - Blue Jays
US-188 - Orlando Hudson - Twins
US-220 - John Lester - Red Sox AL Allstar
US-256 - Mike Gonzalez - Orioles
US-262 - Rob Johnson - Mariners
US-281 - Jose Valverde - Tigers AL Allstar
US-287 - Alex Sanabia - Marlins
US-302 - Pedro Feliz - Cardinals
US-312 - Coco Crisp - Atheltics
