Blaster Break - 2013 Topps

I stopped at Wal-Mart on my way home from work today to hunt for 2013 Topps. I found my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

I limited myself to a single blaster but I like what I got. The base cards are nice. Tons of cool photos. I like the 1972 mini's a lot more than I thought I would but the rest of the inserts are a little boring. I'm not sure how I feel about the emerald parallels yet.

I did okay on the commemorative patch. Hello, Mike Trout! 



  1. Gehrig looks good on any card. I think I like the calling cards-- the green parallels, unless they look better in person, not so much.

  2. Calling Card looks like a set I'll build. Those Emerald parallels remind me of the old Fleer Metal Universe cards a bit.

  3. Agreed. The Calling Card ones aren't bad. I just don't care much for the other two.


  4. Those '72 minis look awesome! The photo of Dickey on his Green Parallel is hilarious...

  5. Nice work, Moe. I am going to stop this morning to see what I can find.
