Pack Break Week: 2010 Topps 206

So this week, I decided to go ahead and open one pack of cards that I bought last weekend at Target. On Monday, I opened my first ever pack of 2010 Topps National Chicle, and yesterday, 2010 Topps series 1. Today, Let's see what came inside the pack of 2010 Topps 206:

The cards that came out of the pack are (in the order of how they were packaged):
  • #20 Mark DeRosa
  • #222 Tom Seaver Mini (American Caramel on the back)
  • #277 Johnny Evers Gold Parallel
  • #10 Conor Jackson
  • #177 Gavin Floyd
  • #119 Matt Garza

My thoughts...your average pack. I've always said, there are some cards that while they look good in mini form (like the real cards), they just don't translate well in regular size. The five cards here are no exception. The backgrounds used on these cards are fantastic, and at least pay homage to the originals (see the background used on Conor Jackson's card, and you can tell that the background was used for Evers' original card.

Three down, two more to go. Tomorrow, I'll open the Series 2. Here's hoping for something I can use.

The Evers card looks like Ronnie Howard from Happy Days
