I was reviewing the 2016 Topps checklist to make sure that I have picked up all the Cubs inserts from Series Two.
Turns out, though, that I forgot to get some from Series One. I don't know how or why I overlooked them, but I did.
The missing cards were from the MLB Debut insert set. There were two Cubs in the set, Starlin Castro and Kris Bryant. So I clicked my way to Sportlots to pick up the six cards.
Yes, six cards; that's not a typo.
Topps made three versions of each MLB Debut card. There is the gold, which came in blasters and retail rack packs, silver, available only in hanger boxes, and bronze, from loose retail packs. None of the card versions were numbered, so they aren't all that hard to get. Its just that there are more of them to get.
Here's the six cards of two players. They are left to right, gold, silver, and bronze.
