I was hunting Allen and Ginter blasters at Target this week and saw another oddball product Topps put out this season:
Each pack comes with one Qubi, and retails for $3. At least that's what it was at Target I think. I figured I should get one and check it out, and knowing my odds of getting a Ranger were slim. I figured there were plenty of other players I wouldn't mind getting. Harper, Trout, Jeter, McCutchen, Stanton, Ichiro, Kershaw, Cliff Lee.. any one of those would be fine too. So who did I wind up with?
Ryan Howard aside, these are pretty cool little trinkets. Each side is no bigger than a penny. It's made of solid clear plastic with images visible on every side. On the bottom is the ink stamper. So now I can stamp my checks with Ryan Howard's signature. I'll at least start stamping my trade packages with it, and fool you guys into thinking I got Ryan Howard into autographing the envelope. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
Actually, if Topps would have nixed the stamp aspect of this product and made them a tad bigger, these would be pretty cool paper weights.
