Been seeing quite a few breaks of the 2018 Topps Series 2 Baseball and dove in with a blaster box. There were ten packs of ten cards each with a blaster exclusive MLB Independence Day US Flag Patch. I'm not a big relic guy but I really do like this card.
Series 2 isn't as packed full of stars as much as it is showcasing younger players and those in new uniforms. This box had a few stars but not many.
There were the RC, All-Star Rookie and Future Stars cards we've grown used to. The above are a rainbow parallel on the left and a shiny one I can't figure out.
The Instant Impact cards are new to me and may take a bit of getting used to.
I really like these 1983 Topps Baseball All-Star cards. Especially love grabbing Rickey Henderson. Not near enough retired/legends in the Topps offerings.
The Aaron Judge Highlight cards are OK but the Homerun Derby card really stood out to me. The Throwback Jersey cards are great and it doesn't get much better than the Astros rainbow unis. Legends in the Making are a favorite of mine this year and I pulled three more in this box.
While not a bad box I'm a bigger fan of the Series 1 cards due to finding more established stars. Could be just this box but Series 2 is normally for players not found in Topps' initial offering. I'm still a fan of this set and glad I grabbed this box.
