Not Topps Series 2. My wide angle lens! I'll be able to take nicer pictures at ballparks (and elsewhere) now - I've needed this for six years. I guess I'll need to get to a Giants game and show you the difference.
But seriously, after checking Target every day this week, Topps 2 finally arrived, and they had it all. There were regular packs, rack packs, blaster boxes, and the $9.99 hanging boxes. I also saw four-pack blisters which included a Diamond Anniversary code card, labeled at $7.99.
I stared for about 30 seconds before I made my choice - four of the hanging boxes. For $10, I get 72 cards and one code card. It's the best bang for your buck as far as series 2 is concerned (other than hits, maybe). As a comparison, you could get the same number of cards in the rack packs, but you're taking the odds on the code cards. If you don't care about code cards, you could go with the rack packs. The blaster boxes, just like series 1, come with 81 cards for $20, so for $10 more you get 8 more base/inserts and one manupatch.
The rest of the week I'll bring you a peek into each box!

Tomorrow, I'll delve into the next box.
