2011 Topps Series 2 HTA Jumbo Box – base cards

19 06 2011

I got my Topps series 2 box in the mail last week, and opened it over the weekend.  I think Topps again did a great job with this product, just like they did with series 1.  My only gripe – there are just a few too many insert sets, and there are too many cards in those insert sets.  I struggled with whether or not I should get a jumbo box – I got a jumbo HTA and a hobby box for series 1.  When I started the Topps project – my intention was to always get a hobby box.  But these jumbo boxes just seem like so much of a better deal, I’ve got to go with them.  I’m thinking I may also get a blaster just for kicks.  I basically all but finished the set, except there were 2 cards that had pretty bad corners.  Below are my favorite pictures (and why for a few of them) from the base cards.

Wakefield – can see the knuckler

Reyes – you can see the lineup of the throw to the cutoff as he rounds the bases

Hamels – you can see the intensity

Burrell – captures Giants celebrating the WS championship

Cain – they did very well getting the ball in this picture

Arencibia – this was from his first game, when he had 4 hits and 2 HR

Valverde – this is my favorite picture in the whole product

Ross – this is clearly from the World Series

Maier – this could go in the Gypsy Queen Wall Climbers set
