2009 Topps / Wife’s Mail Call (8 Feb 09)

Posted: February 8, 2009 in Baseball, Mailbag

I have been seeing posts all over about the 2009 Topps Series 1, so I decided to take a look myself. While at Target, we picked up two packs. Overall, I found the picture quality of the cards to be much better then the 2008 version. But without further delay, here is what we got (out of two retail packs):

Pack One:

  • Brad Lidge (Phillies)
  • Dave Roberts (Gaints)
  • Roy Oswalt (Astros)

Wife’s Mail Call

The first card we received this weekend was a 2008 Upper Deck Premier Brian Roberts card (PP2-BR). It is 11/18 and has double game used jersey relics. I was glad my husband found it on ebay considering the boxes are so expensive and only have 7 cards per box. This card is also much thicker than any of our other jersey cards.

Card number two is from the Hall of Famer Frank Robinson. It’s a 2005 Donruss Champions Impressions (44). According to the back of the card, “The enclosed piece of material was cut from an Authentic Item personally worn/used by Frank Robinson in an official Major League Baseball game.”

    One of the mystical facts of baseball card collecting: Brian Roberts cards never fail to be kind of cool looking.
