2012 Topps Purple

Well, I couldn't find any 2012 Topps at the local Target or Wal-Mart. So I decided to try Toys R Us last night.


Blasters, hangers, and these things.

Well, I opened it, you get the drift though.  Notice the yellow circle at the top right, that's what got me to buy this.  That and I really wanted to lay my mitts on some new cards.  Anyway, I was hoping the "3 EXCLUSIVE INSERTS!" were something like last years Purple Diamond Cuts. Nope, no such luck.
This is what was inside:
and two others, Saltalamachhia and Miguel Cairo.  All available for trade.

So, if you're really insane, you can put together the regular set, the diamond yellow set, Target Red, Walmart Blue, and Toys R Us Purple.  Anyone have any ideas, who else we can add to this wonderful rainbow?

Red - Target
Orange -
Yellow - Topps Diamond Yellow, or do we have someone else in mind?
Green -
Blue - Wal-mart
Indigo -

ROY G BIV, remembered something from grammar school


  1. I would like that Salty parallel...

  2. Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging...glad you're with us

  3. Thanks Robert, appreciate you stopping by.

  4. I'd like the hosmer. What do you collect? shoot me an email.

  5. Welcome. As soon as we can figure out this stupid Blogger problem I'll add you to my blog list.

    1. I was wondering if anyone else was having problems added blogs to their blog list. Stupid Google.

  6. Hackenbush,
    Always loved your "handle". Big Marx Bros fan myself.

    1. Thanks. I've been a fan since I first saw them in grammar school. I have a pretty fair collection of books by and about them. The logo is distinctive.

  7. Your site has now been added to the Sports Card Blogroll.

  8. Welcome welcome. I'm always happy to find a new card blog. Even if it's only updated once a week. And thanks for the info. I had no idea Toys r us had an exclusive colored parallel in their packs. I only wished that they didn't charge more for the same product as Wally world or Target.

  9. I need to get my welcome in as well ! I've been buying some of the Toys R Us packs and had a post about them also. The parallels are crazy !

  10. Thanks for dropping in. I have to work on the rest of the "rainbow" for a future post.
