Best of Topps 2012 (So Far) Group Break - Part 3: Topps Jumbo

Here we are with our first Jumbo Box of Topps. First of all, I need to make a correction to an earlier claim. With the full set being pulled from packs of each jumbo boxes, I made the claim that each team would get a full team set from the Series 1 and Series 2 boxes. Unfortunately, I forgot to take into account the amount of multi-player league leaders cards. I still have not sorted through these cards completely, but there is a good chance that there will not be enough duplicates of these cards to send one to each team represented. I do apologize for that error on my part, but if I run into any problems with this, I will go through the duplicates that I already have in my own collection and do my best to fill in any gaps.

As far as the Golden Giveaway cards go, I will disperse them one to each team claimed.

Anyway, here we go.

Here are the scans:

Gold Parallel: Dee Gordon, Jeff Saunders, Jeff Weaver, Angel Pagan, JP Arencibia, Asdrubal Cabrera, Alex Liddi, Wakefield/Sabathia/Buehrle, Granderson/Cano/Gonzalez, Jones/Pujols/Helton

These have long since expired, but I will send them to the respective teams. Maybe your LCS still has the cards to be redeemed for.

Autos: Adam Lind, Brett Gardner
Manufactured World Series Pin: Willie Mays

After I had recorded the video, but before I had posted anything, NY Hitman 23 claimed and purchased the Giants. So, all of the Giants cards and hits I make reference of in the videos to keeping, will go to him.

Anyway, we're at the halfway point, with plenty of more to go. I was disappointed with the missing hit, but hopefully there aren't any objections to how I decided to make good on that.

I'll see you all tomorrow for Topps Series 2.
