1982 Topps #21 - Cal Ripken Jr. Rookie
Since I already have one of these, this card is going to make its way over to Kevin at Orioles Card of the Day.
2007 Topps Updates & Highlights #UH100 - Jacoby Ellsbury Rookie
Much has been made about this "gimmick" card. I read one post online claiming one collector ripped 20 cases (cases, not boxes!) of 2007 Updates & Highlights and pulled only a single Ellsbury card. One of the only local card shops in my area sold hobby packs of this stuff for $1.50, so I'd end up picking up a couple anytime I was craving some packs to open. I was shocked when I pulled the Ellsbury card from one, and I haven't purchased another pack of the stuff since. Say what you want about Topps using this as a cheap ploy to sell cards. I would probably agree with you had I not pulled one myself. All I know is, when I thumbed through the pack and saw this card I got the same excited feeling I did when ripping packs of 1990 Topps as a kid.
2007 Topps Heritage #ROA-JD - Joe Durham Real One Autograph
To pull an auto card was really exciting for me, especially since it's from Topps Heritage, which is probably my favorite line post-1990 cards.
