Hey all, sorry for the lack of posts recently. I’ve been out of town for a while and busy with various work related tasks, but things have settled down a bit so I should be posting more regularly again.

2008 Topps Co-Signers Baseball came out a while back, and it didn’t really excite me. I think the story with this product is that the really big hits are super mega awesome, but 95% of the boxes probably won’t get you your value back. Here are a few interesting cards from the set that I managed to dig up:

Here’s a dual cut of President Harry Truman and the man who ran against him, Thomas Dewey.

Harry Truman and Thomas Dewey Cut Signatures

If you were paying attention in history class in elementary school, you may remember the story of the Truman/Dewey election. In 1948, the Chicago Tribune mistakenly projected Dewey as the winner of the Presidential election and printed “Dewey Defeats Truman” on its front page. The iconic picture of Truman holding a copy of the newspaper can be seen on the card. I love Presidential cuts and this one is particularly interesting, in that it features both candidates from an election that will be remembered forever.

So there’s the good. As for the bad….

Topps continues its tradition of turning cards that should be awesome into ugly abominations.

Alex Rodriguez, Albert Pujols Dual Cuts

This dual cut signature is taken from two bats of the two best hitters in the game: Alex Rodriguez and Albert Pujols. Unfortunately the signatures are too big for the card windows and both are significantly cut off. I would definitely have prefered a card with just one player, but showing the entire signature. Its always a shame when card companies cram things onto a card:

David Wright, Mickey Mantle, Alex Rodriguez

Sometimes less is more!

Well thats it for now. I still need some time to get back into the swing of things and then its full steam ahead!

    2008 Topps baseball has three versions of the card and I would like to know what the difference is or which card is A,B, and C. I have two versions and one has Guilani in it and one does not. I assume that this is A and B, but how do I know.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the
    internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t
    know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
    as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks
