2007 Topps Series 2 Jumbo pack

5 06 2008

I was at the local card shop and I had to buy something to get my free trading card history cards from Topps.  And since I’m in my self imposed 2007 Topps prison, I went with a hobby pack.  Here’s the haul:

  • 521 Derrick Turnbow
  • 480 Matt Garza
  • 561 Chan Ho Park
  • 605 Bruce Bochy
  • 433 Brandon Morrow (with bent corner)
  • 626 Doug Slaten
  • 510 Alex Rodriguez
  • 332 Chris Young (need!)
  • 337 Jason isringhausen
  • 496 Ryan Klesko (need!)
  • 573 Gustavo Chacin
  • 470 Gary Sheffield
  • 449 Francisco Liriano
  • 410 Tom Glavine
  • 373 Cliff Lee
  • 513 Jermaine Dye
  • 654 Ivan Rodriguez/Fernando Rodney Classic Combos (need!)
  • 599 KC Royals Team
  • 594 Angels Team
  • 343 Shin-Soo Choo
  • 610 Jim Leyland
  • 473 Xavier Nady
  • 586 Willy Aybar (need!)
  • 426 Jeff Francoeur
  • 344 Kenji Johjima
  • 518 Esteban Loaiza
  • 614 Bob Geren
  • 491 David Eckstein (need!)
  • 537 Kip Wells
  • 632 Kevin Cameron
  • 661 Barry Bonds

The Red Parallels

  • 534 Terrmel Sledge
  • 492 Michael Barrett
  • 575 Seth McClung
  • 380 Jason Schmidt
  • 597 Detroit Tigers
  • 598 Arizona Diamondbacks
  • 589 Brad Wilkerson
  • 333 Mark Kotsay
  • 568 Carlos Guillen
  • 487 Eric Chavez

The inserts:

  • OD4 – Opening Day for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and the New York Yankees
  • HP23 Julio Franco
  • GN366 Nick Swisher hit a HR off Jeff Weaver (who didn’t?)
  • JDSF58 DiMaggio hit well
  • TS1 Ryan Howard
  • TP8 Mark Loretta
  • MHR366 Mickey hit HRs
  • JD4 Same Dimaggio, different streak

I have no idea if 8 inserts is a lot in these jumbo packs because this is my first one.  It looks impressive until you actually see what you got.

Overall a pretty good pack, with plenty of stars, the Bonds card, and 5 hits for the set (should have been 6, though with the damaged Morrow).  I’m not planning on attacking the set solely through packs even though it sure seems that way.  I’ve actually been sending out some feelers for trades and hope to hear from them soon.

Is the list in the “Zeroing In” post current? Are those the last ones you need?
