This is a great continuation of the base series. I received 78% of the set - which is pretty good. There are quite a few different inserts and the master set builder might find a small hill to climb to complete each of the insert sets. One should need to buy 2-3 boxes to complete the base set.

I particularly like the Vintage Legends and the Cards Your Mom Threw Out. These 2 inserts show the rich heritage of the national pastime.

Overall grade A - maybe just a few too many inserts....

Go buy several boxes and send the gold parallels of the Rays (and Hamilton and Teixeira) to me!!

I would like a shot at the million card giveaways. Also, is the Mickey Mouse card for trade? My daughter would love that!

There were supposed to be 10 baseball cards per pack. I opened a box of 36 packs and got a Topps Attax card in every pack. I dont want them, and to me they are not a baseball card, i feel ripped off, like there were only 9 baseball cards per pack.

Was the card in a pack of baseball cards? Does it have a picture of a baseball player on it? Yes to both questions? It's a baseball card!

While I agree with you I understand his frustration. It is tough when you buy a box of 360 cards for a 330 card set then realize that you are still going to be short of the set because of the inserts. Of course, that is why I try to go with Jumbo boxes now. Even with all of the inserts, I still put a set together and had about 70 cards leftover.

Thanks,

Jeff
