2017 Topps Update - Box #2 Still Meh

Finally cracked my second box of 2017 Update.  Was hoping for the big hit I sometimes get from boxes that I buy from this particular vendor, but unfortunately, no dice.  I think my hit is tradeable though.  Got some decent inserts and short print variations, but the rest was stunningly mediocre.

The Rookie Cups (this year's excuse to reprint iconic star cards) are a step up from the gold back advertising from last year.  The Zimmer and Benintendi Salutes are up for grabs.  I might be persuaded to release Chipper and maybe Clayton too.  I like the look of the Untouch Ables (it's not one word) and may try for the legend shortprints.  The '87s and MLB are staying with me.  Bo is for my PC.

Moncada black looks really cool with the ChiSox uni, but he's on the waiver wire too.
Any of the buybacks are trade bait too.

Which one of you Jays fans wants it?  Would love to get an Oriole or National for it.


  1. I'd like to do some persuading for the Kershaw, although not sure what it would be right now (I notice the Koufax was not mentioned, that card by itself would make that an above-average box for me).

  2. I would be interested in the Zimmer insert. You can reach me by email at tim(underscore)gretchen(underscore)marriage at

  3. I've got a wantlist up for base cards and have inserts, etc to swap. A couple of 87s, parallels etc.
