2012 U S Olympic Team

24 packs / 8 cards per pack
'Including at least 1 US Olympic Team Autograph, 1 Relic, and 1 Commemorative Relic card per box!'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nb0x8cAflUI

I received the following:

100 unique base cards - complete set !!:D :D plus 28 duplicates.

The cards are printed on light weight stock and have a glossy finish on the front and a matte finish on the reverse. The 'pictures' are artistic and the photos take on a red, white and blue theme - imagine that USA Olympic cards - red, white and blue.... The reverse has birth date, hometown, and where the athlete currently resides along with a brief history of the athlete.

Inserts

Bronze, Silver, Gold parallels

**********************

This issue is a very good issue for nearly anyone - the set collector, the master set builder, the player collector, and even the youngest among us. One will receive a good cross section of the athletes and the specialties of each for this summer's Olympic Games in London. You will be able to watch the games with a little bit of knowledge about the participants and the sport.

I appreciate the fact that I received a complete base set in this box. AND the cards are numbered on the reverse!!! THANK YOU!! :D :D :D

The autos and I did receive 2 - pretty cool that the box says 'at least' on it - are both sticker autos - but the cards are designed for the stickers.

The commemorative patch is well done. It is a manufactured patch - I did not receive a pin in this box, but the commemorative pins are much the same as the pins in Topps Baseball Series 1 - 2012.

Side note - If anyone receives Brittany Viola cards - I want to trade for them. She is the daughter of a friend of mine - Frank Viola ( he and I coached our sons for a couple of years in baseball.) I have the base, the bronze and the pin - coming from the 'bay. I still need the silver, gold, and commemorative patch.

Overall grade A- I prefer HD photos...

Go buy several boxes and send the Brittany Viola cards to me!!

Let the 'gimmie's' begin....

Those are some nice cards for sure! Did you happen to pull any Misty May or Kerri Walsh cards by chance???

Take care

Duane-

Would you be willing to trade the base set? If so, how much BV would you need for it? I can make a special page on my site listing all the cards I have of the players you collect if you do decide to trade it.

Most of the sets on the 'bay are going for $10-$20 (one feller is asking $199.99!!! - rather high ) I haven't decided whether or not to sell/trade it. If I do, you will be the first I contact.

Nice. I just bought a hobby box. Got some dups. I am into archery. I could use the Brady Ellison if you are interested in trading. PLMk.

The Ellison is yours. No trade needed... unless you pulled Viola - either silver or gold....

I have a Brittany Viola, the same insert as your Brady Ellison.
Will trade for your 2008 Beijing card if you need this Viola ?

If this is available ( Aly Raisman - gymnastics relic ) I would love to get it. My daughter is 7 and is starting her second year of tumble/tramp/gymnastics. She would love it as she watched the women's competitions (men's too), but was more into the women. If you have any extras of the women's gymnastics team, please let me know as well. Thank you, Tony.
