2008 Topps Updates/Highlights Jumbo HTA Box - Fun Random Break
Wife was at Wal-Mart and she brought this home as a nice little pick me up. It was priced at $49.98. Which I thought wasn't too bad and honestly I didn't even know this product existed and let alone she said it was the only one on the shelf and she's never seen it before so she got it.

Needless to say this was my first "Jumbo HTA" box I've ever opened and didn't realize it was 50 cards per pack LOL. >.<

Lots of interesting cards, I wasn't really expecting much.

Here's the hits - I looked through the checklist and I'll have to go back through to make sure I didn't miss any.

This is funny because my birthday is May 11th

I think I got an extra hit because it said 1 auto and 2 patch cards Big Grin

I looked up the Abe Stamp and Beckett has them listed each 1-4 respectively but they have a #6 instead and I think it's supposed to be #5.


Other than that it was a cool break, I managed to get the "Take me out to the ball game" card which was really cool. Couple nice Gold Foils /2008, had other gold foil letter cards. Just an all around fun break and I possibly may try to find more of these boxes if I can and bust them open Smile Because this newer stuff coming out just isn't appealing to me :/

Just a minor FYI none of the presidential stamps from the Update series were added to Beckett for some reason.

You can google the full checklist of them and see all the presidents have more numbers than what Beckett lists.

I personally pulled a James Garfield from the Update series that's not listed and another member recently pulled a George Washington that's not listed.

The Topps HTA boxes are my favorite wax to bust, you usually get the whole base set plus 3 (or 4) hits and a bunch of golds and other fun stuff. I'll have to look out for them. Thanks for sharing!

I pulled the Abraham Lincoln Update Stamp #AL6 years ago and it wasn't listed. I made a thread and posted some scans and that's why the #AL6 is listed now. I suggest doing the same or contacting a mod about this thread with the pic. Great pulls by the way!
