2011 Topps Packs Galore!!! And a 2011 Topps Sticker Update!

Over the weekend, I may have over-done it in the card buying department.  Not only have I bought four 10-card hobby packs, one 50-card jumbo pack, and three 36-card retail jumbo packs of the newest 2011 Topps Update Series, but I bought the same number and same kind of packs for both 2011 Topps Series 1 AND 2. 

Not that I needed any more cards from either series and I should be focusing on the new product (until I can scrounge up enough money for the master set anyway). But they were there, and I decided to take a chance (and see if there are any SP cards I need). 

I'm taking the day off, but I'll be running around the suburbs.  I should be able to open all the packs and will display the spoils when I'm done.

On an unrelated note, I am almost done with getting my 2011 Topps Sticker Album done.  I had posted on twitter (I'm on there as @bdj610) that I was down to about 50 plus stickers and was trying to decide if I should buy more packs, buy singles at a show, or trade.  To my surprise, both founding fathers of Baseball Cardpedia (that would be sruchris and Mr. Stale Gum himself) sent me replies asking to show a want list. With that done, both offered stickers that I needed to add to my album. 

Now sruchris sent me a package of 25 stickers last week. Much appreciated Chris.  I mailed a package out to you.  I wasn't able to find any stickers you needed.  But I do hope what you receive will suffice.  Still waiting on the other package (I have stuff ready for Mr. Harris, but I didn't get his address, so I'm hoping what he sent through the mail comes soon).

I have to run. Hopefully, after next week (payday), I can purchase a master set.  Based on what I've opened so far, I am loving the cards and can't wait to complete my binder.

Speaking of binders, do you think I should send money to the Topps Company to buy the 2010 and 2011 Topps Baseball binders they have for sale?  I don't think they will fit for my regular sets, but they would make good books for my 30 team sets.  Thoughts?

And don't forget to enter the "Guess the All-Star Rookie Team" contest.  I read Bad Wax' post on the legalities of contests and that all card bloggers should read it.  Great timing since I just started the contest last week.  But based on the article, I think my contest is legal (I should put those "void where prohibited," "no purchase necessary" and "must be 13 and older to send submissions" be safe).

That's it.  Gotta run.
