I have once again fallen way behind. I apologize. In order to catch up I have thrown everything together at once. I hope I do not offend any of my fellow bloggers who sent me stuff by doing this.
Up first was another blaster of Topps Series 2 that I picked up on my way home from a long day in court on Friday.
1. 2013 Topps Jackie Bradley Jr. RC. This is probably the card I was most excited about in this set. A terrific action photo of a rising star.
2. 2013 Topps Wal Mart Blue Jackie Bradley Jr. RC. I love it when I get both the base and a parallel in the same box.
3. 2013 Topps Jose Iglesias. He is still hitting. It is frankly amazing. I now have the base, blue, and red versions of this, all from packs.
4. 2013 Topps Clay Buchholz. Same as Iglesias. I have three versions all from packs.
5. 2013 Topps Manufactured Card Patch 1955 Topps Ted Williams. The patches are one-per-box in their own foil wrapper. I have never pulled a Red Sox...before Friday. I held the package in my hand and I silently hoped for one of the three Ted Williams cards. Lo and behold, I got one. And a pretty neat one at that. This is my favorite pack pull of the year so far.
6. 1969 Topps Carl Yastrzemski AS. Thanks Matt!
And next we have another trade with a fellow blogger. This one was with Jack from Baseball Dad's ALL TRIBE BASEBALL. I sent him a few Indians cards and he sent me a package headlined by this:
7. 2013 Topps KMart/Toys 'R Us Purple Ryan Sweeney. I really like these purple cards and they seem to be in much shorter supply. I guess people just are not doing much shopping for cards at those stores.
Jack also sent me a couple of other cards that were duplicates, but again, greatly appreciated. Thanks Jack!
The last package was another individual, Brian, who contacted me for a card on one of my pack break/tradebait threads. In exchange for an Archives Sticker, he sent me these:
8. 2013 Topps 1983 All Star Jim Rice. You can never have too many cards of Hall of Famers. I love the Archives insert sets and will be trying again this year to get all of them. This one helped.
9. 2013 Topps Sticker Jacoby Ellsbury. I did not have any of these yet. Nice to add another Ellsbury to the collection.
And finally, the tradebait. The first scan is all stuff from the Topps blaster earlier. I got a ton of parallels and inserts. Most of the inserts I got in a previous blaster. Annoying. As usual, if you see anything you want and want to trade some Red Sox for it, let me know either by email or commenting, but if you comment, please let me know a way to contact you. I had some issues last time with people who did not have email addresses anywhere.
Here is some more stuff from the blaster:
Jack also sent me an unopened pack of 2003 Donruss Super Estrellas. The contents are here, with the exception of a couple of cards that have been spoken for:
