How Topps got me stuck on National Chicle

A while back, with Allen & Ginter still not out yet, and 2010 series 1 completed this new product caught my eye at a my local Target. Topps National Chicle.

Hmm. "All-painted series," I do like this genre of cards. Turkey Red, Masterpiece, and Ginter, might as well see what this set has got. So I picked up one pack.

Then Topps clicked the handcuffs on my wrists and bound me to this set. Now I am not saying I will try to complete this set or anything, but what I am saying is that a pack of these always seems to end up in my cart when I am doing my shopping. Why? Here is why. This was the third card in my first pack.

Such a beautiful card. The signature is crisp and clean and the way the card is designed, it looks fantastic. Of the Authentic auto cards that I have, this is one of my favorites. I really don't know who Mr. Desmond is, sorry I don't, but it doesn't matter to me.


  1. Pretty nice representation of the player and background too. Nice looking card.
