Wanting to basically just get an automatic complete set with a few hits, I picked me up a jumbo box of 2012 Topps Series 2. I like Topps base, mostly out of just pure tradition, but this way, I can bust open a set, and move on, without buying pack after pack after pack after pack. Plus, I get plenty of cool inserts, which Topps is not shy about providing. Anyway, here's what I got.

Auto: Jordan Zimmerman
Relic: Jeremy Hellickson
Manufactured World Series Pin: Reggie Jackson
A decent auto, a pretty good relic, and a REALLY good World Series pin. I know that the odds are the same, but I find it weird that with the two boxes I have opened for myself, and the two I opened for my group break, I pulled FOUR World Series Pin manu-relics, and NO rings. Oh well, I guess those are the odds. I do like the Reggie though. The card actually looks pretty cool with the green coloring.
As always, if anyone is interested in anything, be sure to let me know.
