I've seen and read just about every kind of opinion you can have on these cards. Some of the artwork is just weird looking and some is amazing. Overall I like the cards and I LOVE the on-card autos. I had the Rangers in Joe Collectors June Break and he busted two boxes of Chicle. I should be able to see the Neftali Feliz auto he pulled as soon as I get back home.
I bought one blaster of Chicle at Target. It had 8 packs with 6 cards each.
Here are some highlights and lowlights of the cards I pulled.
Scott Feldman--National Chicle Back--A parallel of a Ranger...that's nice
Russell Martin--This is a really nice card.
Pee Wee Reese--I like this one.
Stan Musial--One of my favorites so far.
Rogers Hornsby--SP I have to admit, when I scanned these I didn't know which ones were short prints. Otherwise, I might have scanned this one. Umm....no, I wouldn't have. It's not as nice as the other two.
Tim Wakefield--Wow, that is BAD. All caps BAD.
Eric Young Jr.
Henry Rodriguez--On card autos are really nice! Thanks Topps!! The odds for this were 1:157.
Tobi Stoner--This pack didn't have much to scan.
Drew Stubbs--SP-- SP rhymes with ugLY. Sort of.
Lou Brock--Sweet Lou!
You'll notice that I only listed 6 of 8 packs. I sent one pack each to Dan at The Other World and Zman over at Autographed Cards as part of their prize pack for winning the First 10 Game winner and First Manager Fired contests. I got all the expected "hits" out of the box except one Bazooka Back (1:8) packs. Hopefully one or both of them will get something good in their packs.
I'll definitely be looking to buy more of this...but I need to buy a box of A&G for the Gint-a-CuffS!!
