2008 Topps Heritage Box Break, part 4

Circle wipe! I don't know why I didn't think of this before, as it works perfectly with the design of these cards. Also, "Hello Stranger" is one of my favorite songs ever, and certainly one of the best songs from its time period.

Fausto! Great looking card; I love that shade of blue.

I'm pretty sure that Sam Fuld card uses the same photo as his regular-issue Topps card.

I like that "Words Of Wisdom" card there. Based solely on their facial expressions, it looks like the conversation went something like this:

Randolph: Yeah, John, uhhh... throw some strikes okay?

Maine: That's what you call words of wisdom?

(I'm well aware that they're two separate photos, by the way.)

The inserts (minus the chrome parallels) have left a lot to be desired for me so far. I guess they're nice, but I haven't gotten really excited about them either. That could change, especially if I pull a game-used card with something actually used in a game and not just used to watch a game.

I can't think of anything fun to say about the second pack there, except that the Alaska card came OTM with a huge corner ding.

That Chase Utley will end up in my top ten favorite cards in the set, I'm sure of it.

Brian Bannister chrome refractor! Pretty nice.

Once again, anyone sees anything they like just let me know.

That Cole Hamels card is so ugly. The green background and bright red hat make it look like a Christmas card.

The music for your videos is fantastic!
