The 100 Best Finds in a 30-Dollar Lot: #65

2010 Topps The Cards Your Mom Threw Out #CMT110 Cole Hamels 2003 Topps

While it's nearly impossible to be faked out when opening a pack of Topps from this year or last year (same insert, different name), it can happen when you rifle through a USPS Flat Rate box stuffed with cards. I must admit, it happened to me. Same card stock as the original (unlike pre-1992 cards), plus my relative unfamiliarity with the set combine to make me think, for a few seconds at least, that this was the real deal. I'd rather have the original, but this is nice, too.

One of my all-time favorite cards is 2005 Topps with him and Ryan Howard on it. Classic rookie card.
