All this fuss...

In the collecting community right now there is a lot of buzz about these "Value Boxes" that Topp$ has put out with 6 packs of series 2 cards and a hobby pack of Allen and Ginter. Also included is a Million Card Giveaway redemption and one of 3 "Special Refractors". It seems it is another money making scheme by Topp$. Even if I am not happy about the scheme, it is their right to make as much money as they can. Anyways, enough babbling. Now, I could care less about the Babe Ruth refractor and even less about the Strasburg. All I want out of the whole package deal is the Cal Ripken Refractor Card. I can not justify paying for the whole package deal because I want one card. Knowing my luck, I wouldn't get a single Cal if I bought 5 of these value boxes. I definitely don't need anymore series 2 cards because I completed that set 2 months ago and Ginter is not a set I am interested in. So, if anybody has an extra Ripken they would like to trade me, I would love to hear from you.


  1. The Ripken is available on eBay for about $2-$3 plus s/h.

  2. I bought a Strasburg and a Ruth. Sorry!

  3. I was thinking about trying them out. Oh, and clever blog title!
