The saying might be "it takes a village", but in my case, it's all about Community. As in Community Gum. The CG boys busted 5 Jumbo Cases...yes, I said cases, of 2012 Topps. As a regular follower, I was quick to jump when they offered up the contents of those cases for sale. They had some very nice Rangers from the break so while I didn't buy all the available cards, I did get what I could and I was happy to add to my collection and help them out at the same time.
The CG Boys managed to get 8 of the Rangers gold parallels.
I bought them all including this Josh Hamilton.
Jon and Andy hooked me up with a couple of the Gold Rush redemption cards too.
I'm not exactly sure why Mitch Moreland is included, although I like him quite a bit. I guess being in a couple of World Series will get you a little more exposure than normal.
Oh Nelson, if only you'd caught that fly ball!
One Rangers black parallel popped up too. It was the one I most wanted and it's #34/61.
This last card isn't a Ranger one, but I couldn't resist. It's one of the Nolan Ryan Retired Rings manu-things. These are pretty nice for manufactured relics. It's #248/736 and I still don't get the numbering.
I also picked up an Alexi Ogando Golden Moments auto redemption and a complete set of the 1987 minis. That means the ones I got in packs will be available soon. I'll try to get a list up for those of you still looking for some.
Thanks Jon and Andy! I appreciate the great cards. Is it time Series 2 yet?
