Here's a look at some highlights from the set, since I've never really had the opportunity to show off 2005 Topps here otherwise:
he was charged with attempted murder.
Hmmm, I really feel like I'm missing something. Let's see, there were the Tigers, the stars, I counted everything to make sure the set was complete, but I KNOW there was another reason I grabbed this set. OH YEAH:
Justin Verlander 2005 Topps RC
It's a pre-pair of no-hitters RC of some guy named Verlander. This card by itself is responsible for the rising cost of hobby boxes, not to mention complete sets, and almost always sells for more than I paid for the entire series plus shipping! It's a fantastic rookie that I'm thrilled to have as part of multiple PCs since it can be filed under rookies, Tigers, and JV's player collection. Blog namesake represent!
One quick request to you readers before I put this one to bed: does anybody have checklists 3 and 4 from Series II? The seller included the first two, and I'm not OCD enough to worry that much about not having them, but if anyone feels like including them in a future trade package, I'd surely appreciate it!
