Does Anyone Buy Overpriced Cards? (aka "Topps Online Store")

Topps Logo

If anyone out there is planning to use the Topps Online Store for anything soon, please let me know.  I have a $10 gift code for there I that I got from the NFL Super Bowl Legends code cards.  The SHIPPING from there is at least $9, so I'm not gonna make an order for anything myself.

However, if any of you plan to buy something from there, please leave a comment and maybe I could send the code your way.  Post what you would be buying -- whoever is buying the coolest thing will get the code.  :-)

Stephen Gostkowski - Net Fusion

One of my goals to fill out my collection in the future is to expand my collection of NFL Kickers and Punters.  When I saw last Fall that Pacific was coming out with an insert set of ALL kickers, I knew I would have to get part of it.   Kickers + "Net" Manu-Relics???  I'm IN.   I was all set to get it...until I saw the prices.  They were WAY too high - at least for my taste. 

During a recent Ebay scouring, I saw this guy -- Stephen Gostkowski of the Patriots.
2011 Crown Royale Net Fusion - #15 - Stephen Gostkowski
I ended up with this for $4 + shipping, which was finally within the "reasonable" range for me (that's still the 2nd-most money I've ever spent on a card).  It looks sweet.and will feature prominently as the centerpiece of my kicker collection for the immediate future.

The Yunicorn

2011 Topps Yuniesky Betancourt - #289

I don't like the Yunicorn.  HE CAN'T HIT.  I was happy when the Royals traded him (although I was less happy we had to part with Greinke to get rid of YB).  However, he's back with the Royals now as a free agent signing, and he's back in my collecting life.  I got him as part of my second successful trade on Zistle.  I picked up a bunch of 2011 Topps Royals, including the Billy Butler CYMTO I still needed:
