I Love 2013 Topps

I don't love it enough to actually write a post about it, even though I have had card scans ready for weeks now. I don't love it enough to spring for a box of it, even though prices are starting to fall precipitously. I don't even love it enough to build the set. I have a pile of base cards that I'm trading/giving away if you need 'em for a set. I don't love the parallels. The Emerald is not as nice as the sparkly twinkly ones from a couple years ago. I would like to get a pink one just for giggles, but those are numbered to 50 or something so I'm not going out of my way. I'm not crazy about the inserts either. They are a hell of a lot better than the ones from last year but other than the fantastic Die-Cut set I'm not overly impressed with any of them. Except one. One I love. Love love. Deep and spiritual love, not anything paltry or cheap or disgusting.

I friggin love the 1972 Topps minis.

I wants them all.

Here's one-fifth of the set just because I has them and I want to show them off.

 i loves them all my pressssioussss

I'd be up for some trades of 2013 for some of the 1981 cards from your list - shoot me an email if interested (I posted on your wantlist a little bit ago)

I have a Dustin Pedroia, Paul Konerko, Buster Posey, Josh Reddick and Alex Rodriguez if you need/want em.

Hey, I'll send you the Harper mini if you need it. I have a stack of assorted Braves inserts that I had set aside for you a LONG time ago that I'll send along with it.

Seems like the 72 minis are really hit or miss with people. Either they love 'em or they don't. Aside from the fact that I have no good place to store/display them, I'm all for 'em!

This is off topic, but I happened upon this while scrolling through MLB videos and thought you would enjoy it (Chipper's first HR): http://mlb.mlb.com/video/play.jsp?content_id=25541693&c_id=mlb
