World Baseball Classic Topps Set


Everyone else in America might have not cared/was bored with the World Baseball Classic but I really enjoyed it and I've been looking forward to the mini-set from Topps for a while now. The set arrived today from Dave and Adam and I ripped in immediately.

Is this Yu's first American card or was he included in the WBC cards in Series II of last year's Topps base set?

I don't know much about Pedro Lazo other than he is Cuba's best pitcher...This is probably my favorite card of the set:


Ichiro fans got bad news today that he will be going on the disabled list for the first time in his major league career for a bleeding ulcer. Ichiro's played in 807 games of the Mariners last 810. He's been the new Iron Man since coming to America.

This one's for Dinged Corners:


If you are interested, here is the entire 55 card set:

I was definitely into the Classic. Team Phungo took a vacation to Puerto Rico and enjoyed a few games there.

At the game they gave out sheets of WBC cards, but they are different from the ones in the box set.

I found 2 players the sets have in common. David Ortiz and Bernie Williams. But the Photos are totally different.

Here is the link to the Cards I got at the classic:
