Payday Pack - Water Doesn't Flow Like That

Another payday, another pack of Series 2 Topps! What photographic wonders await? Let's find out!

3rd Place

2018 Topps - 1983 Topps All-Stars #83AS-11 Corey Kluber

I love All-Star cards, and the subset from 1983 was one of the good ones. I'm glad Topps redid these, and it's hard to argue with one of Kluber. You don't often hear him mentioned with Kershaw, Verlander, and Scherzer, but he's building a strong Hall of Fame portfolio himself!

2nd Place

2018 Topps #352 Cincinati Reds

Photographs capture moments in time, and love when that moment captures the fluidity of water. Look at that bottle in the upper right - the water spewing forth is going in directions you'd never catch in real-time!

1st Place

2018 Topps #518 Andrew Toles

Toles is stretched out, practically touching both sides of the card. You get the impression that one millisecond later his other foot has left the ground and he's flying for just a brief moment before gravity has its say. Plus, it looks like a yoga pose...

Other Not Appearing On Stage
#655 Andre Ethier
#683 Adam Eaton
#512 Mike Napoli
#AJ-28 Aaron Judge 2017: Silver Slugger Award (Aaron Judge insert)
#676 Chad Green
#571 C.J. Cron
#480 Aaron Hicks
#419 Fernando Rodney
#693 Brandon Kintzler


  1. That Toiles is sweet! As for that Reds card... I never would have noticed the water. Way to slow down and appreciate your cards.

  2. I really like 2018 Topps, for cards like these. Nice catch on the water in the Reds card. Kluber is underrated, at least in the hobby. Just wish he'd beat the Yankees once in a while.
