PATP 2015 Topps Jumbo Pack Contest Win!

I won a contest put on by Brian at Play at the Plate. The prize? a jumbo pack of 2015 Topps Series 1. This was a few weeks (months?) ago, but I thought you guys might want to know what that pack contained. Well, here ya go:

Okay, this wasn't actually in the pack - Brian threw it in with the pack. I still have no idea where you guys are getting these things...

That Jeter is just gorgeous. Sooz, was this you? Did you pick this one? Great job. Wasn't this card selling on eBay for like five bucks for a few days there? Insane.

My first encounter with this insert, and I love it. Super jelly of the big guy in the stands. How cool would it be to be on a baseball card by accident? Night Owl knows...

This was also my first one of that First Home Run insert cards. I read someone remarking how weird it is that Deion got a card in that insert. Well, I'd like to throw the fact that Junior didn't on top of that.

I'm very much enamored with the First Pitch insert, though. I'm pretty close to the whole set, too.

Just a sweet fielding play by Manny. A kind of perfect horizontal card.

Thanks for the contest and the pack, Brian! This was a treat.
