2011 Topps Pick-Ups

Hey guys, I'm back!  I know I haven't posted that much at all the past few weeks, but my Varsity Baseball season is fully underway and AP tests/SAT coming up it will be tough for me to post a ton, but I will still post.
The past weekends I have been buying a ton of 2011 update packs, so many that I can't post all of the highlights, so instead I will post all of the "special" cards I have.
 As you can see, I got 2 red parallel cards, a Jacob Turner rookie card and a Shawn Campp.  I also got a gold parallel card, Jose Altuve.  I don't know too much about the rookies but I figure if any of them pan out, it will be awesome to have.  I also don't understand why, from my experience, Topps made the red parallel cards more rare, I think the gold are much more appealing.  The bottom three are diamond cards, which I think Topps did well on last year.  I am very excited about the Nunez rookie, being the Yankee fan that I am, and of course I love the Andrew McCutchen diamond, a phenomenal young player.  I also have always liked/respected Melvin Mora as a player.  

This past weekend I missed out on a card show I would have gone to with Drew.  However Drew did get me a picture for my Mom's birthday I will be posting shortly.

Thanks for reading!
