...and another thing.

Despite being on the sell sheet, Barry Bonds is nowhere to be found in '08 Topps. (Geez, I wonder why?) Will the last six cards of the Barry Bonds Home Run History mirror set ever be released? Does anybody even care?

However, it should be noted that Roger Clemens, Rick Ankiel, Miguel Tejada, and Paul Byrd are all in the base set.

Heh, you plugged my blog as much as you did yours! Nice break, you got the same number of inserts I did (save for the stamp card).

Hey where in Tom's River were you? My parents are from there and I would love to do a box break for my site next time I'm up there.
