My local Target has the new 2010 Topps Baseball on the racks, so I wanted to grab a few packs to check them out. I've seen a few cards online, but it's always nice to see them in person for yourself.
So here goes. This is a 12 card retail pack.
Here is the front.
Here is the back.
First card in the pack:
317 Ryan Doumit
254 Edwin Jackson
222 Curtis Granderson
This is what the backs look like.
92 David Eckstein
227 Josh Thole
328 Chicago Cubs
The back lists HR, RBI, AVG, Wins, Strikeouts and ERA leaders for the Cubs. I'm too lazy to scan the back, but it's a photo of Lou Pinella.
CMT-24 (Cards Your Mom Threw Out)
Here's the back.
This card details The Curse of the Bambino.
TTT9 Roy Halladay
I'm kind of tired of the old Toppstown cards. These are a welcome change.
240 Ricky Romero
185 Hideki Matsui
74 Casey Blake
I don't like the big swoosh thing on the side. I do like the big Team logo and the player name with a silver background is kind of nice. Maybe it's just me, but I don't like the photos in the cards so far. The only one that I even sort of like is the Mets card and I think that it's because it's a cool action shot.
