The best a man can get

Not every day can be a highlight that I will end up keeping, and that isn't necessarily a bad thing.


We have seen these inserts in both Football and Basketball before from Topps circa 2007. Not going to be keeping this of course, but can appreciate these inserts as in the past, simple design, but detailed. Stadium names these days though, can irk me. I get it, sell the naming of the stadium, make a ton of money, or have them put the money into building the stadium, but regardless, you get some interesting names for stadiums. Gillette just stands out - not too far out of the realm of names, but stil stands out a bit - there have definitely been worse.

The rest

That new age rookie card design on the heritage card still bothers me...wish they would have done something more retro.


Yeah, plenty of traders today. Still plugging away on that 2007 Topps football set I am not really looking to finish as most of these were new for the set.
