Two questions and a comment for you.
1) Has anyone reported 2011 Topps UPD error cards?
I just opened a few packs and received about 10 cards that didn't get foil-stamped (best way I can explain it) ? The name of the player and the circle for the team logo aren't foil hilighted. I can try and scan them if interested. One of them happens to be a Hosmer rookie, which was kinda cool.
2) 2011 Topps series 2 blaster from Target had a parallel set of throwback, heavy stock cardboard with the old style Topps logo. I see no mention of them anywhere. Are they 'under the radar' for some reason, or just not that interesting?
As per your advice, I picked up 4 Topps value boxes.
From those boxes, my yield wasn't quite as good as yours, but not too bad. 1 Gold and 3 Red Harpers, only 6 diamond giveaway codes, and the above mentioned "error cards"
From the Bowman packs, I received 1 auto (Enny Romero #349/500) and 1 of those die cut cards. (whatever they're called ..... I forget)
