2013 Topps Series 2 - Inserts and Hits
I got 2 Topps Black parallels, Jon Lester #12 of 62 and Devin Mesoraco #35 of 62.
I got 7 'The Elite' cards. They look really sharp, like Museum Collection or something and are pretty thick. For trade are: Willie Mays, Ted Williams, Bob Gibson, Sandy Koufax, Johnny Bench, Jackie Robinson and Ozzie Smith.
I got 15 'Chase it Down' inserts including Manny Machado (he is all over this set) and Adam Jones for my PCs. Weston from Fantastic Catch is getting most of these with the exception of the Pablo Sandoval, which is going to my nephew, Jacob. Remaining cards for trade are: Bryce Harper, Cameron Maybin, Mike Trout, Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas.
Chasing History inserts included Manny Machado (again) and Dylan Bundy, so those are mine. Cards up for trade are as follows: 51 (x2), 52 (x2), 54, 56, 59, 66 (x2), 69, 70, 72, 73, 74 (x2), 75, 76, 81, 82, 83, 88, 89, 92, 95 (x3), 98 and 99.
I hope everyone remembers that I am pursuing the Emerald parallel set. I am about a third of the way done with Series One and now need a bunch for Series 2. I got 30 parallels out of my boxes. Here are the cards that I got, meaning, I don't need to trade for these: 336, 337, 338, 363, 373, 374, 382, 389, 393, 411, 418, 433, 439, 455, 458, 464, 469, 474, 480, 529, 537, 550, 553, 557, 564, 565, 589, 590, 625 and 661.
So, there you have it. Several of the teams have been called for out of the inserts, so I will be going back through them either tonight or tomorrow. Once I do so, I will transfer my 'haves' over to my trade page (which needs some life, for sure). I also plan on going through my inserts from Series One and adding them to the trade page as well. I'm either going to trade most of this stuff away, listing some on COMC or setting up a table at my local card show very soon. These boxes were expensive and I plan on making back a little bit of what I spent and I think I can do so pretty well.
That being said, if there is anything any of you want, please don't hesitate to contact me, either by email or commenting on the blog. I appreciate all of the folks who have already gotten with me and the others who plan to.
