2010 Topps Series 2 Baseball Jumbo HTA Box - Click Image to Close

Hey guys, Drew back here. Today, I wanted to share the results of my 2010 Topps Series 2 Box Break, so let's get started. I wanted to try a jumbo this time, because I haven't before and the hat patches look nice.

10 Packs per Box
50 Cards per Pack
500 Cards per Box
1 of each Insert per Pack
10 of each Insert Per Box
1 Hat Logo Patch Per Box
1-2 Relics per Box
Possibly 1 Auto per Box
Possibly 1 Legend SP per Box

I've seen some breaks where people don't get autos, but most do have one. Of course as you know there are 330 cards in the base set, which adds on to the first series. Let's see what I got!


Base Set: 320/330

Here are most of the Yankees I pulled. I like the pics especially on the Joba and Gardner, and what Yankee fan doesn't love the World Series card?

In other teams, I got 2 Heywards, an Austin Jackson, and a Mike Leake rookie. The Reyes card has a really cool picture, possibly card of the year? A lot of great photos were used in this set, looks great!

You Sketch It Card: 1

Will it be Strasburg??? If so, it's for sale

Vintage Legend SP: Nolan Ryan (#615b)

Nothing like a nice looking Nolan Ryan card to improve the break! Now on to the main 3 hits...

Autograph: #PPA-DM Daniel Murphy

Eh.... it's for trade

Game Used: #PPR-NS Nick Swisher

Eh.... it's in the PC! I never got a hit of a player I collect before until now, and the card is really nice. It says it's just plain memorabilia, it's gray with a cool texture, I'm thinking batting gloves possibly?

Hat Patch: #MHR-301 Zack Greinke

Very nice card to finish it out, numbered out of 99, of a premier pitcher in baseball today. Too bad he plays for the Royals. It's for trade, but only for a Yankee like this of similar value.

What do you think? My review is coming up next. See Ya!


  1. My Topps Attax cards from my jumbo box were all dinged up as well. It's not even worth the postage to send them back to Topps for replacement. I'm just glad that my hits and 95% of the cards from the box were in good shape.

  2. I feed the Topps Attax cards to my kid.

  3. I hate how topps counts those attax and toppstown cards as one of the 10 or 50 cards in the package. id rather have an extra base card. And I hear ya on the damage. Seems jumbos always get messed up

  4. I've bought the small/medium packs ($9.99) and each time the Gold cards have been bent upon opening... disappointing, but I love the photos!


I would love to hear what you thought about this post! Please feel free to leave a comment below. Thank you!
