Best of 2012 Topps (So Far) Group Break - Part 4: 2012 Topps Series 2 Jumbo

Just tipping us over the halfway point, let's dig into Series 2. The specs are the same as Series 1, except for a few tweaks. For one, there are no league leader cards in this set, making it easier to disperse the cards, but also, there are more insert sets, meaning that we'll get five cards of more inserts, instead of ten of each, if that makes sense. Anyway, we DID get all three hits out of this box, plus a short-printed variation for one of the teams. So let's get things going!

Gold Parallel: Jim Thome, Tony Campana, Jason Giambi, David Murphy, Neftali Feliz, Freddy Garcia, Aaron Harang, Brandon League, Dallas Braden, Chase Headley

1987 Mini: Jose Reyes, Felix Hernandez, Justin Verlander, Frank Robinson, Hunter Pence, Carlos Santana, Ryan Zimmerman, Brooks Robinson, Pablo Sandoval, Brian McCann

Gold Futures: Matt Moore, Dellin Betances, Brian Heyward, Jordan Walden, Madison Bumgarner

Career Day: Ken Griffey Jr., Reggie Jackson, Roberto Clemente, Jackie Robinson, Yogi Berra

Mound Dominance: Sandy Koufax, Nolan Ryan, Bob Feller, Armando Galarraga, Dwight Gooden

Golden Moments: Buster Posey, Tim Lincecum, Craig Kimbrel, Carl Yastrzemski, Don Mattingly, Hanley Ramirez, Tony Gwynn, Mike Scmidt, Chase Utley, Steve Garvey

Cut Above: Miguel Cabrera, Mike Stanton, Justin Verlander, Johnny Bench, Jose Bautista

Gold Standard: Reggie Jackson, Cal Ripken Jr., John Smoltz, Paul Molitor, Lou Gehrig

SP Variation: Dustin Pedroia

Auto: Randall Delgado
Jersey: Ubaldo Jimenez
Manufactured World Series Ring: Barry Larkin

There you have it. We got our three hits, and so far, we've been lucky enough to have them spread throughout the teams, which is good. I'll be back tomorrow with Gypsy Queen.

See you then.
