More 2012 Topps!

After taking a longer than short but not long spring break, I'm back to post more! With baseball season starting, I have been more on the field then in the wonderful world of collecting. But alas, I'm back! Well at least for a few posts. As a quick side note, Thanks William for the cards, I can't keep up with the posts. Haha. Back to the post, these 2012 Topps I picked up about a month ago and I must say, either they put in a lot of really awesome inserts or I got really lucky. I opened at least three Mickey Mantle cards and a whole lot of more awesome ones as well. Here's a few:

Here is an Eli Whiteside gold card. Dustin Eli Whiteside made his debut in 2005 for the Orioles and played a whopping 9 games. After that he was in the minors until he came back up in 2009 for the Giants. He has done decent in a 196 games and 478 ABs hitting .218 and accumulating 10 HRs in that span. In the middle is Miguel Olivo. I'm sure you have heard of him. The one on the right is good ole Nyjer Morgan, who has been all over the place from Pittsburgh to the Nats to Milwaukee. 

These are Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio "Golden Great" cards. Nothing much else to say other than these guys were Legends!

Here is a "Timeless Talents" of Andre Dawson and Justin Upton.

These two are "Classic Walk-offs" of Jim Thome and the other of Magglio Ordonez.

Here are "Gold Futures" of Jose Tabata and Jason Kipnis.

And finally, these are the "Golden Moments" of Tom Seaver, Roy Halladay and Jered Weaver. As much as I don't like the Mets, I do agree that Tom Seaver was no doubtingly a Hall of Famer. As for Roy Halladay and Jered Weaver, they are both on the road there as well.
