I was at Target last night and decided to pick up a few packs of baseball cards. I’m not THAT into baseball cards any more, but it’s fun to grab a few packs once in a blue moon and rip ‘em open. One of the pack’s I bought was a Topps 2007 Rookies – 1952 Edition. These cards designs are based on the old ’52 Topps series. I’m a sucker for the old designs and almost anything from the ’50s is totally money. The Josh Hamilton Homer Bailey duo card came in the one pack I bought. Awesome! Now, picking this card up last year would have been awesome, but I still love it. It was hard to see Hamilton traded and Bailey has been having his troubles in spring training this year. I wish Hamilton good luck with the Rangers. Our Savior, Homer, will be a great one soon… Reds fans just have to hold tight for a while.
I was reading the back of the packaging for that pack of cards and I thought it was funny that there was this disclaimer:
“Topps does not, in any manner, make any representations as to whether its cards will attain any future value”
How long have they been putting that on there?
