October Group Break - Box #2 - 2001 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia

Box #2 of the break, for your viewing pleasure...

As always, scans after the page break!

Please try and contain your excitement...
Yea, so great news for Jeff Wilk, he gets a great relic of a White Sox and a cool "different" relic in that it's a game used base. We got craptastic redemptions for the Rookie Premier and the Tools of the Trade. By the way, I looked it up and Card #20 of Tools of the Trade was actually supposed to be Kazuhiro Sazaki of the Mariners... so there's that... really? 2 redemptions in 1 box? REALLY!?!?!?!? REALLY?!?!?! BOO!!!! The rookie premier material player, Carlos Garcia, at least he didn't amount to much because I have no clue what team he was on in 2001.

Alright I couldn't scan the baseball, you know, it being all round and everything... but how about that?!?!!? Bob Feller!!!!! A legend! A HOF'er and a multiple no-hit game thrower! AWESOME! And a WWII vet as well... awesome.

Well, I can only promise it will get better in 2012 Topps Triple Threads tomorrow because if there are any redemptions, they at least are still valid... freakin' a...


  1. And Bob Feller is also part of an Abbott & Costello routine, a Who's on First variant.

  2. Tools of the Trade 20 would have been Kaz Suzaki of the Mariners

  3. Which of course you already said.... I gotta learn to read to the end.

  4. Man - two redemption cards suck. It's a crime for those.

  5. Remind me NOT to get any of those boxes again !! Thanks for the first one had Tigers !! ( O'Well , Thats the way the cookie crunbles !!)

  6. just my luck - the carlos garcia featured in other 2001 sets was a dodger!,=carlos+garcia
