On my trip to the Bay Area that included watching Max Scherzer start for the Mets in a blowout against my beloved Oakland A's, I stopped at my favorite card shop in Marin County.
I picked up a single from this set (Dave Parker Auto) and had my eye on buying some packs at some point. With the cosmetics of 1952 Topps printed in Topps Chrome format, it seemed hard to go wrong.
Interestingly, there were two Hobby products: "Hobby", and "Hobby Lite". The major difference between the two is that "Hobby Lite" was priced lower and had no guaranteed autograph hit (there is 1/box in the standard "Hobby" edition)
I broke four packs from the standard Hobby box. 4 cards per pack.
Here's former 2017 All-Star Michael Conforto, who turned down $30,000,000 from Houston and hasn't played in the bigs since 2021. He's only 29. There's gotta be something we don't know about.
Here's Kyle Tucker. Some weird airbrushing on this one. He was a 2022 All-Star.
