My 2013 Topps Series One Collection.

Back again guys, this time with opinions and a brief overview of my favorite cards from 2013 Topps so far. I must say, I'm really excited about this product from Topps, it's just really hot! Well I'm not going to waste any time jumping into some of my personal favorites, so enjoy!

This Jurickson Profar rookie card is pretty awesome, seeing as he is one of the top rookie prospects this year, I love the card!
Notice something wrong about this gold foil card? No name and no Topps logo. Error cards are cool, just hope that they aren't too common in this years Topps products. (this card should have the Topps logo and Shelby Miller printed on the front)
These emerald sparkle cards are awesome! I really love the color of emerald and have always been a sucker for green, so way to go Topps! I thought this Yu Darvish was nice and I also really liked this Sean Marshall as well. (you may be wondering who Sean is and why I like him. It's because I know him personally and have taken pitching lessons with him)
Short print of Jon Jay. Pretty cool on the "Out of Bounds" theme for the short prints, I like them!
Eric Hosmer "Out of Bounds" short print.
Mike Moustakas "Out of Bounds" short print.
Mark Reynolds "Out of Bounds" short print. (William over at foulbunt has already traded me for this card)
Chasing the Dream relic card of Matt Moore. The relic designs for this years series one and two are looking HOT!
Cut To The Chase die cut cards look really cool! Brett Lawrie is probably the best one I have there. I have two of Cargo, and two of Berkman if anybody is interested in a trade...
So this card has seemed to spark quite a lot of arguements on Youtube already...people are bickering about whether or not it's a "1/1". Personally I think it is. Here, take a closer look....
This is what the serial number on the back reads. (0001/2013) So what do you guys think? I think it is cool! 1/1? I have no idea now....I always thought when you got number one out of a serial number it was unique and was a "1/1"....Please, let me know what you all think about it though, because at this rate, I have no idea whether it's even relevant or not. I had to remove 2 videos from Youtube already because of trashy choice comments shot back in forth between two users (who will remain nameless). One arguing about it being a 1/1, and the other arguing that it wasn't a 1/1...I have no clue anymore so if somebody can clarify, that would be greatly appreciated.
So I hope this was a somewhat enjoyable post for you fellow bloggers, let me know what you think, and if you like anything let me know! I'm always down for a trade. Thanks for reading and if you haven't already, please subscribe. Thank You guys!

Some random cards from random packs...

While I have been busy lately, the card buying has not ceased, in fact it has been in full swing! These are cards from 2012 update series, 2012 Topps Bowman Platinum and various other cards...Enjoy!

This Jean Segura blue refractor I pulled from a Hobby pack...Good luck trying to pull it retail!
This Tyler Matzek green refractor I pulled retail out of one of those silly rack packs. Pretty nice card to pull out of Bowman Platinum.
This Liam Hendricks was also pulled from a Hobby pack. From 2010 Bowman Chrome if I recall correctly. He was projected to be a pretty good prospect, but he doesn't seem to be making a huge impact in the majors thus far...Still, a very fine blue refractor.
These two relic cards were pulled retail out of Hanger boxes I believe. The Robinson Cano is ehh being a Red Sox fan, but the Miguel Cabrera is pretty neat seeing as he won the Triple Crown in 2012.
So again, I hope you all are enjoying the updates. I know I have even more cool stuff to show off. So like I had said, stick around and try to be the first to see it! This may the last post of the evening, but I will try to post tonight on 2013 Topps baseball and the 1/1 Mike Trout I pulled, but again no promises! There is no telling what will pop up preventing me from posting, because something always has a way of presenting itself AS I sit down to post...Well  until then, see ya! 

Trade with William

Hey guys, it's been a while, I know. I have been primarily focusing on my Youtube channel that is exploding at the moment, and I have been really busy between my awesome girlfriend, and not so awesome school work. I have also been filling out job applications and looking at colleges, so the time I normally set aside for blogging has and had been forfeited for more important things. But you will all be glad to know that the card buying, trading, and selling has not been forfeited, and with that, I will show you one of my most recent trades with my buddy William. Here are the highlights of the package!

This Jarrod Saltalamacchia Allen and Ginter relic card is pretty nice, it has earned a spot on one of my custom card shelves.
This Jim Rice bat card from Topps 2013 series one is pretty awesome too! This was the main card of the trade and I love it!
I will be updating with more posts here a little bit more often now, and you guys need to stick around to see it! I have some pretty cool stuff to show off right now...Hope you guys enjoyed! I'm out!
