Hunting for a cover model

Either tonight or tomorrow I will be heading out to the local neighborhood Target in search of some Topps T206. I am interested to get an up-close look at the new set, as well as add a few brand new minis to the collection.

In the meantime, the eBay hunt continues for lots, singles, players, oddballs...basically anything not regular-sized. I bumped into an auction for a single mini last week that I immediately knew needed to be lost in my collection. Not only was he featured in the 2007 Topps Allen and Ginter set, but he was also on the front of the box. The face of the product, the point of purchase display! Joey Chestnut?


Abe Lincoln?


Enter the Dragon!
Bruce Lee. Awesome card. I especially enjoyed the packaging on this card. I love the creativity that people put into justifying highly-inflated shipping costs. A top loader, a heavy chunk of cardboard, and some USPS packing tape...none of this can keep Bruce Lee down.


  1. He done busted right out of that package!

  2. Great..

    I wonder if you can get away with just slapping a stamp on a top loader
