Reduced Ticket To Stardom


Target recently had a few packs of Topps' regrettable Ticket To Stardom set in their clearance area...I say "regrettable" but I don't really mean it. I'm so hungry for new cards I've got a countdown clock until 2011 Topps on the side of my blog [two weeks and counting] and I'm reconsidering all my opinions on previous sets. The baseball card landscape is so empty right now I'm reduced to frantically searching the discount bins for any old baseball product marked Upper Deck [or Fleer]. So I nearly leaped for joy seeing those TTS packs for $1.59 each.

I don't have a lot of time to post today so I'll just highlight my favorite card of the packs:

#189 Jim Thome [Deckle Edge]

I wish that these deckle edge cards had a larger deckle?...if that is the right way to say that? Are you with me? I want the half circles on the edge larger.
