Parker's Birth Year Set Quest: 2010 Topps!

As I take my first steps into fatherhood, I see less time for collecting. Which is fine because of diminished extra funds and my desire to further refine my collecting goals.

I completed my birth year set (1976 Topps) a few years ago. It is one of my favorite things in my collection. I want Parker to have a birth year set too. I guess it will have to be flagship Topps since its the only kid on the block. (I am excited about the artsy Chicle but that's for Daddy!)

I bought 16 packs of Series 1 for him and Uncle Chris chipped in for 8 more. I briefly considered going for the whole shebang but decided that Parker needs to learn that less is more sooner than later. It's base set only. (But he is not opposed to those cool SPs or those mini target reds)

SPs: Have 94 Fisk
