These are the first Topps National Chicle cards in my collection. These cards are really hit and miss. I have seen some cards that I really like the illustration and then seen others that leave me scratching my head as to what the artist vision was. Though overall, I do like the set, my goal is to complete the Baltimore team set. This is a product that has dried up in retail outlets and hobby boxes can be found on the online retailer sites for seventy to eighty dollars. This surprised me a bit considering the length of time the set has been out and the criticism it received in the hobby, the three guaranteed hits per box may have something to do with the price.
This card is from 2010 Upper Deck Series One, another set I did not purchase any packs of when it was released last year. The O's dropped their sixth straight game today. The better hitters on the team are really struggling, Vladimir Guerrero is currently leading the team with a .260 average. Markakis is currently batting .220 with two home runs and six RBI. These players need to start producing runs to support the young pitching staff or it is once again going to be a long season.
