Spring can't get here soon enough.
The mailman did bring a little spring to me - Spring Fever.
This is the fourth year that Topps has had their Spring Fever promotion. The deal - bring in some wrappers from the base set to your local hobby shop and trade them in for a pack of Spring Fever cards.
I don't buy packs and I don't have a local hobby shop.
I do have Ebay and I have five new Spring Fever Cubs cards. For the Cubs to land five of the 50 spots on the checklist is amazing. Two years ago not a single Cub was on the list. That's quite a turnaround.
The five are big names...Arrieta, Bryant, Heyward (making his first cardboard appearance as a Cub), Rizzo, and Schwarber.
My only complaint with the cards is this...in a set called Spring Fever, why on Earth is there...
