2013 Topps Update

I'm a little late to the game with this posting. I know most, if not all, of my fellow bloggers have probably picked up their 2013 Topps Update packs from their local hobby or retail stores. Not me. I've gotten sidetracked this past week with a few things. First, I had to travel to St. Louis last week for my job - nothing worse for a Reds fan than to be in St Louis for the start of the World Series. Second, I was tempted to pick up some cheap 1986-86 Fleer basketball cards I needed for my set. As a result, my baseball wants will have to wait until next week to be addressed. My 2013 Topps Update set shouldn't be too difficult to obtain had it not been for this card. A super short print! With Teddy going for more than $130 on average on eBay, my guess is that it'll be quite some time before Teddy makes an appearance in my collection. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a fantastic card about the greatest bat boy in the majors. I just wish Topps had make more of these than they did. For the time being, if I can grab all the base cards of 2013 Topps Update with the Votto short print, then I'll bend the rules and call this set complete.


  1. Seems to me it would be a better tribute if the card were a double print rather than a short.
