2008 Topps Jumbos

Well I didn't expect to buy a lot of this product, but after heading down and getting a box of UD and a Jumbo of Topps, I headed down and picked up another Topps Jumbo as I FAR preferred the Topps product, as did my Wife. I will do break downs of both products, but I will start with the Topps. The packs are busted, and the boxes are sorted, but I can still give you a good idea of what to expect out of Topps 2008.

Regular boxes of Topps had no guarantees of any hits, and being an unapologetic relic and autograph lover, I opted for the Jumbos for $30 more then the $55 price tag for the standard box. So you are not quite paying double, but you are supposedly guaranteed of pulling two hits from the box, and about 1 1/2 times as many cards. I have also found that I usually pull better inserts from Jumbos, which I have heard rumors about around hobby shops, so what the heck. True to their word Topps provided at least the guaranteed number of hits from the boxes. In fact there was a bonus auto, so there were in fact 5 hits from the two boxes. More on those later.

For the first time I can remember though, the true stars of these boxes were the insert sets instead of the relics and autos. What a HUGE step up from Generation Now and the horrible mirror sets in the past. Some of the mirrors are still there, but Topps definitely did well with the new sets and designs and with the Hobby picking up steam each year, this could be a banner year for the Topps product. Topps has inspired me this year to go for a master set, so lets take a look at some of the insert sets, and what I still need to complete them.

AR55 - Magglio Ordonez














So that is 20 cards with no doubles out of two jumbo boxes. That works out to one in each of the 10 jumbo packs per box. With 35 cards still to go, this will not be the easiest set to complete. Value wise I doubt it would be hard to purchase, but needing to purchase at least 4 jumbos and having some incredibly good luck, you better be a member of a good trade site like The Bench if you want to complete it. Up next we will look at the awesome Trading Card History set, but for now I need a break, lol.

Thanks for the scans of these cards. I've always been a fan of the "Topps All-Star Rookie" subsets. Maybe I'll get lucky and pull one or two in the few packs I buy this year.

These are what excites me more than anything right now. I can't wait to start pulling them and putting the set together.

Thanks for posting the scans.
