Topps Series 1 has been on the shelves for just over a week. I couldn’t resist the urge to buy a couple of the hanger boxes (but I should have), and pulled three Reds cards from those packs.

I’ve never heard anyone use the term “lidlifter” before. I will definitely have to start working that into conversation.

I’m very thankful for my baseball card blogging and Tweeting friends. Follow Tony on Twitter at @OffHiatusBBC and PK at @pksteinberg!
