2009 Topps Is Live

Mark at Stats on the Back just found packs at Target. Looks like JayBee's noticed too. There were no pics so I had to verify on my own. Here are two eBay auctions:

Topps Gold Angel Salome 773/2009

Topps Gold Mickey Mantle 570/2009


You can presell sets and even inserts with impunity, but there is absolutely no way to presell a serial numbered card. I guess I'm going to Target in the morning. Away we go....

And I went to Target today, too, because I had heard rumors, but nada.

I need to live in a more hip part of the country. That's all there is to it.

One of my Targets had them, another did not, here in the suburbs of Chicago

I'm glad I live right next to a Target and a Walmart and I will be visiting both tomorrow morning.

they're probably put on the shelves by morons who don't pay attention to street dates

Yay, Mickey Mantle card. Playing infield, huh??WEQ?!@ Weird. Is that legit or is this a photoshop job?

I just happened to be in Target last night and did not see anything. I am going to Wal Mart today and will look.

Dave, Mantle did play SS in the minors. But I have not seen the card you are talking about (this is the first place I visited this morning),

I found the topps about a week before the release date at the local fred meyer I can't weigh in on the difference because there still are o upper deck and Iv'e checked target and Wall mart as well just to get a look at the cards it seems from the post I like the UD design a little better but not much it's probly gonna come down to the inserts and what the hobby boxes have to offer if I even buy a box I'll probaly wait for the goudeys or 1 high end for my 1st hobby box for the year.
