2013 Topps M L B Series 2

36 packs - 10 cards per pack - hobby box
One Auto or one Relic card per box

I received the following:

289 unique base cards - or 87% of the base set of 331 - no dupes - excellent!!:D

Series 2 follows in the tradition of Series 1 - stiff, bright white base with a glossy HD action photo and sliver foil imprinting on the front of the card.

The reverse has stats both personal and pro along with a short write up of one facet of the player's career.

Inserts

Gold, Black, Pink parallels

Series 2 - a very good issue for the Topps collector - lots of inserts and one receives a very good percentage of the base set with just one hobby box. 2 Hobby boxes should do it for most of us trying to build the base set. The player collector will have a number of parallels to chase - gold, black, pink, cammo, silk, and even 1 of 1's.

SP's - there are a number of SP's in the set - there are SP's with the player's autographing items, one with Ortiz standing in front of a giant US flag, and SP's that are close-ups of players with sunglasses on. I did not receive any SP's in this box.:p Dang it!

I do favor the die cuts as I have in the past. These to me are the coolest inserts.

The autos I have seen are all stickers - blue Sharpee auto stickers.

Overall grade A -- very good follow up issue to Series #1

Go buy several boxes and send all of the Rays parallels to me!!

A few days ago after reading this review, I was inspired to go get a couple packs of 2013 Series 2 at the local Walmart.

Pulled a pink parallel of some rookie named Manny Machado.

My guitar fund now has another $100 added to it.

Needless to say, I LOVE THIS PRODUCT.

I'd like the WBC Votto if you pulled it. Otherwise, I'm interested in the Elite Morgan and whatever Chase It Downs you pulled.
