It was of no consequence, since I had busted so much 2011 Topps that I had a couple of extra sets anyway, and a Topps factory set would just be gravy.
However, the rumor mill starting churning, and my curiosity was piqued. Apparently this factory set had a special foil stamping on it to differentiate it from the regular set, Once it arrived, I debated about cracking it open to see what the difference was.
For whatever reason, I opted not to open it at that time, and saved it for a later time. One day not so long ago, I said what the heck and unwrapped it. Sure enough, the cards were different from the retail/hobby packs, and look a little something like this...

Other than the Braves, Twins, and Yankees, as well as a few other singles, I have decided I am going to put the remainder of the set up for trade. I am guessing that the majority of you out there have already found these cards by hook or by crook, but if you are looking for certain players or teams, drop me a line and I'll be happy to work out a trade.
Until next time,
