2009 Topps Updates and Highlights

Today was not unlike most days except for the fact that the Rickey Henderson short print, jersey card, and bat card from the 2009 Topps Updates and Highlights cards were calling out to me from a deep dark place.... When the cards call, I am powerless. As I sat eating my lunch I heard them... "Take a shot." "What will a couple of packs hurt?" "Buy a box, its your lucky day." So against my better judgement I walked over to the Target, crack house, across the street from my job and searched for a blaster of the '09 Updates and Highlights.

They did not have any! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you..... I did not need them anyway. As I turned to head out the door out of the corner of my eye I saw them. Sitting in one of the vendor drop down boxes..... unopened packs of the objects I desire, 09 Updates and Highlights.

My mouth watered, my heart raced. My wallet groaned! I snagged 5 packs in my sweaty hands and headed for the cashier......

Here are the results of my 5 packs:


These two nuggets of GOLD were in there!
I am such a sucker for anything serial numbered, I even put the gold commons in top loaders. I wonder what the numbering would have been on a 1988 Donruss Jose Canseco 12,345,980/20,000,000?

I also pulled a few ROOKS!Beckham, and Bergensen have potential!

These were a nice surprise.

I wish I was a Chipper collector because I always seem to pull him. I think this is a very sharp card!

And the last card I am going to post.......
I am not sure why this card makes me want to throw up in my own mouth, but it does. Maybe it is the fact that the Yankees have had such a good year and are on the verge of going back to the World Series, maybe it is the fact that these two grown men get paid millions to play a game and I am jealous. Maybe it is the stupid looks on their faces combined with the "rocker horns". Or possibly it is the fact the the card says, "New York Rockers". It is most likely all of these things and then some that make me want to vomit. Whatever it is if you are out there and want this card, leave a comment. I would gladly put it in the mail and ship it to you!

  1. I saw the Swisher/Damon card as I was leafing through a binder of Updates & Highlights at a card show. As I picked out the Dodgers, I was deciding whether I'd collect the set. I saw that card and that clinched it for me. Not collecting it.
