Thoughts on the Aroldis Chapman Trade

In the days and weeks heading up to the trade deadline, I kept hearing Aroldis Chapman’s name associated with the Cubs. Most of these rumors don’t come to fruition, and while it’s fun to dream about having good players come your way in the middle of the year, this was not fun.

Let’s Not All (Gold) Rush At Once

So, you guys already know about the 5 Jumbo cases we opened of 2012 Topps Series 1.

As you can imagine, that left us with a massive box full of wrappers. Normally these would go to set packing material, but this year Topps announced a very limited-time offer to redeem your wrappers for more cards.

Phew! Who knew baseball cards could be so much work! Still, even after opening five Jumbo cases for our business venture, you won’t hear either of us complaining (well, maybe after 16 hours straight of back-breaking sorting).
