Introducing 2011 TPP Cards!

Yes! After days of planning, sketching, and digitalizing, 2011 TPP (The Pack Prodigy) cards are here! There will even be packs of cards that feature original TPP cards on card stock (5 per pack). There will also be an insert set called "Leaders of the Diamond" that feature 2 of the top players on each team on a horizontal card.The image quality will be better than this preview, mainly because I had to scale the picture. Also, there will be a set of Top Rookies. The RC logo has not been chosen yet, so I will set up a poll soon with several designs and you can vote on your favorite! So, here's a final rundown.

Base Set: 65 Players
50 veterans, 15 Top Rookies
Inserts: 30 Leaders of the Diamond cards
15 Monumental Milestone cards highlighting major milestones of the 2010
Relics: Possibly Available at a later time.

Packs: 5 cards per pack (virtual or in-hand)

DA Card World Pickup and Mailday

During this morning's hectic black Friday sale, I managed to snag a hobby box of 2010 Upper Deck Baseball for only $30. I also got these cards in the mail from trades.


Blowout Cards Purchase

Today, I bought a hobby box of 2006 UD Future Stars. I really love this product because it has 5 rookie autos per box, and 9 serial numbered parallels. The checklist includes the likes out Jon Lester, Hanley Ramirez, Prince Fielder, Jon Pappelbon, and Joel Zumaya!

Free Cards!!

The shopping, the borderline insanity, the amount of people in one store; why spend your early morning shopping at a mall or department store at the risk of losing an arm over a Zhu-Zhu pet when you can get free cards right from the comfort of your office chair? All you need to do is answer this trivia question correctly..........

New Pickups

Just got these through trades and bought the triple threads patch off ebay.

Today's FREE Pickups

Wow. Today, out of a hobby pack of 2009 UD Series 1, I pulled an Adam Dunn jersey card. (Note: 1 swatch) On top of that, I was digging through some old cards in my grandparent's basement and found a Willie McCovey as well as a Bob Gibson (valued at $10). I'll scan the Gibson later and I can't remember the years of the two at the moment. Also, I pulled a Starlin Castro RC out of 2010 Topps Updates Hobby Edition. I'm psyched that I was able to get these, and hopefully I'll be purchasing a jumbo box of 2010 Updates soon.

It's Blue!!!

Just acquired the blue refactor of Kevin Youkilis for my rainbow!

Ortiz Is Back

One more amazing turnaround, one more year with the Red Sox. David Ortiz finally agreed to having his $12 million option exercised. After hitting .282, blasting 30+ HR's, and 100+ RBI's, the Red Sox are happy to have him back.

Box Break Pictures

Here are the pictures from my box break of triple threads.

Going for the Rainbow

Recently, I decided to go for the 2010 Topps Chrome Kevin Youkilis rainbow. So far I only have the purple, but I am working on trading for orange, base refractor, x-fractor, ans the base card. If you are willing to help me out, feel free to contact me on Beckett under 20youksox. Any help would be appericiated.
