The scans are pretty much all over the place in this post. I started sorting out base and inserts before realizing that I needed to keep them separate for the points scanning. Won't happen again! I was just so excited to start my inserts binder that the cards kinda mingled together.
Latest Impressions: Now that I have my inserts binder ready to roll and I can really check out the products grouped together I definitely am starting to like the insert sets. All of them...yep, even the Toppstown look better this year. Hands down though the winner for me so far is the Cards Your Mother Threw Out. These are fun, and very nice reprints, and there is rumored to be ACTUAL original cards out there for the taking. Or at least original backed...either way they are pretty nice.
Thats it until Tuesday. I recommend you go check out Joe's rip points. Word on the street is that he pulled a jersey card today....AND STILL is behind.....BWA A A A AHHHHHHHHHHHH!
