Christmas shopping = trips to Target.
Trips to Target = baseball card aisle visit.
Baseball card aisle visit = packs of Topps 206 cards.
Packs of Topps 206 cards = some of the worst cut cards in the history of mankind.

Let's dig in.

6. John Mayberry

No number short print (1:4 packs):

Miscut card

Wow. I don't even know what to say. When you get a pack with 6 cards...and one of them is completely trash by being miscut it's hard to be optimistic. It's even harder when you buy 3 packs and 2 of the cards are trash. I guess I should try to contact Topps - but really, I don't even know what they'll do - and it'll cost me more to send in the two cards than it would to buy a fourth pack...


  1. Half Hamilton/Half Blalock. That's a bummer.

  2. That sucks! My wife bought me a pack of 206 while shopping at Target this weekend. Nothing great, no miscuts either, but every card had a HUGE down the middle. Packsearchers of course-I've had the problem at Target before and they don't care...I think I would have rather got sharp miscuts than creased whatever...Either way, I wasn't too impressed with the brand. Even less after seeing the careless cuts and lack of quality.

    I think the miscut cards are more interesting than normal cards of Renteria or Blalock would have been. :)

  4. Chris, I'll send you a nicely cut reds card for that miscut Rangers card. I'll add it to the oddball stack

    I sure could use the Cano, sorry about the miscut problems, that sucks. I also can take the Teixeira, Mantle, & Munson off your hands most certainly. Leave me an email if you are interested



  7. That's absolutely inexcusable considering how much packs of cards cost these days. Also I'd liked to be scammed by the Panama investment company.
