2008 Topps Update and Highlights preview

24 07 2008

Last year I thought about this set and ultimately passed, but this year, I think it’s a go. But I’m not doing it for the First Lady cut signature cards, the First Couples cards (James Buchanan will be a highly chased short print), the Ring of Honor cards, the sketch cards, the Take Me Out to the Ballgame tribute, the 2009 WBC hopefuls, or even the fact that Kosuke Fukudome is listed as UH001.

I’m doing it for the picture of Jay Bruce standing next to a track. Cause that’s what baseball is all about.

And I’m not a big parallel guy, but those platinum parallels look pretty nice in the pictures. If they weren’t 1 of 1’s, well – let’s just say I’m glad they are 1 of 1’s.

2008 Topps Update and Highlights is scheduled for an Oct 15th release.
