Beginning the 2013 Topps Series 2 Box...

Last night, I finished off the 2012 Archives box - so now it's time to turn our attention to the 2013 Topps Series 2 box.  There are plenty of cool cards in the set, let's hope we get a few!

Series 2:  Pack 1:
Mike Fiers - Brewers
Chris Young - Athletics
Tom Koehler - Marlins
Shane Victorino - Red Sox
Alberto Callaspo - Angels
Santiago Casilla - Giants
Alejandro De Aza - White Sox
Troy Tulowitzki - Rockies
CD-6.  Chase It Down:  Mike Moustakas - Royals

TM-80.  Mini:  Johnny Bench - Reds

I gotta love the Bench, though I'm growing tired of the psychedelic tombstone design Topps.  The Chase it Down cards are kind of cool in concept, though they feel like they belong in Gypsy Queen.

Pack 2:
Mark Trumbo - Angels
Devin Mesoraco - Reds
Jeff Locke - Pirates
Derek Norris - Angels
CH-71.  Chasing History:  Buster Posey

TE-20.  The Elite:  Lou Gehrig - Yankees

When I first opened the pack, I thought we found a relic given how thick "The Elite" cards are...I have to say, the Elite seem more like a failed "high end" base card, they are really, really nice.  A great pull for the Yankees if you ask me.

Pack 3:
Alfredo Marte - Diamondbacks
Fernando Martinez - Astros
Cody Ross - Diamondbacks
Darin Mastroianni - Twins
Brandon Phillips - Reds
Matt Moore - Rays
J.J. Hardy - Orioles
Ian Kinsler - Rangers
Mike Trout - Angels
Million Dollar Chase card
Ad card

I scanned the ad card because "why not."  As for the Million Dollar Chase card, it'll go out in someone's pile as part of their group break loot.

A good start to the Topps box...only 33 packs remain in the group break!
