Reason #1 Why You Shouldn't Dismiss That Flea Market Box Of Mostly 2010 Topps

I kept forgetting to post this, for some reason, but anyway, this is part 1 of a 2-part series. I was walking past a table at my local flea market sometime in the past couple of months, and I spotted what looked mostly like recent Topps cards in a plastic bin, some of which were in one of those small albums they sell at the toy stores. I looked through the bin a bit, saw that there were a bunch of cards, but I wasn't sure I wanted to haggle with the seller over recent stuff until I saw what I'll be posting in Part II hiding at the bottom of the bin, rather inconspicuously. The Part II stuff sealed the deal, and I headed home with the bin. Thing is, as I was going through a bunch of Topps cards from the past couple of years, I came across this in one of the albums...


Yep, my first Pie Face card, and of a guy I do collect at least casually. So, seriously, if you were skipping over looking through fairly recent Topps cards at flea markets or garage sales when they're sold by run-of-the-mill, non-card-collector looking folks, don't. I would've actually missed this, had I not spotted what you'll see in Part II.
