Two Series 2 Hobby Boxes & One Archives Hobby, With An Autograph Surprise(s)
First off let me introduce myself I am Michael and from Cincinnati,Ohio.

Today there was a card show at the local HS and I had saved some money to buy a few boxes of cards. I went with two series 2 boxes and one Archives box.

The first box I busted was the Archives box. First auto:

I pulled a couple of the cool chrome cards. Next, the fourth to last pack I was excited with this redemption card:

Since I am from Cincinnati I have yet to decide if I want to keep it or not.

Then I opened the first series 2 hobby box and pulled this relic card:

Still on a high with the Griffey pull I opend the second series 2 box and pulled this jersy card four packs in:

As I went thorough the next thirth packs I pulled some nice inserts along with Reds cards.

The thought of a second hit in the box was the last thing on my mind when I opend pack 35 but, to my suprised I came up with a Golden Moments Die Cut Auto Nolan Ryan!! I did not even know what I had till I read the article on topps.com.

Needless to say I never thought I pull one nice auto let alone two from only three boxes.

I'm from the Seattle area but have been a Reds fan since the 70's. I was fortunate to watch Ken Griffey Sr play ball all these years and was excited when Jr. came to Seattle. I'm always excited to see People get great cards like the Griffey Jr. Congratulations on all 3 sweet cards, I grew up watching all 3 of them players, Ryan,Griffey and DeCinces.

Man those griffeys are going for 3 or 4 hundred bucks on ebay. You could sell it and buy a real nice auto of him in a reds uni and still have a ton of money left. Great score, good for you.

Wow! Those are two of the only hits I really wanted from the products. What a score! If you put the Griffey Ryan FT let me know. I'd likely open the PC up.
