That's what was going through my mind after opening two blasters of Series 2 this weekend.
Not a damn thing.
Sure, JP Arencibia got some zoomed in love.
|The most polarizing of your 2013 Blue Jays.|
There were some rookies, and of course, some underloved Blue Jays that never play.
|Topps really overdid it on the new Blue Jays BP cap.|
Seemed like every Jay in S2 has one on.
But what else was there?
|Well, these two stood out over their barely-replacement-level red counterparts.|
|Well, it's moderately enjoyable. Anytime where JHey isn't succeeding, I enjoy.|
Occasionally quality photographs.
|These certainly don't suck, but Topps felt they had to photoshop a Phils uni on Revere, anyway.|
More minis, though I love these two second baseman:
Of course, more retired guys on retread inserts:
|These guys will have homes.|
|These will go to their highest bidders. Blow me away.|
And two new inserts about as inspiring as an eighth-grade farm boys book report on The Tale of Two Cities:
|Some exceptional player selection, I must say, but every damn one looks the same.|
|The only card out of 160 that made me smile. But how could you not??|
And so I felt nothing.
Which is really how things have been going in the card blogosphere lately. Series 2 is a dud. I'll chase my Blue Jays rainbows, but that's it. I might not even attempt to complete it. Even if I do, I'll have to solicit all of you to donate your doubles, because I sure as hell am not buying anymore of this.
Perhaps I was rolling a bit too high after the luck I had with Series 1 (which netted me two Camo parallels and some great blue/red parallels.)
Or perhaps, with a quality, though not-extraordinary effort from Bowman, along with a catshit reiteration of Gypsy Queen, I thought Topps would step it up with a quality product for Series 2. False.
