2010 Topps Series 1 blaster box break - Commemorative Patch Card

2010 Topps Series 1 blaster box [$19.99 each] - I needed to satisfy my 2010 baseball card fix and eagerly wanted to get to a local Target once I got back to the U.S., after I'd spent three weeks abroad in the island nation of Philippines for a sort of a homecoming / vacation.

Commemorative Patch Card
MCP 21 Orlando Cepeda - 1967 World Series Commemorative patch; two dinged corners, a pin-sized tear on the right hand side of the card. The card looks cheap because the area where the manufactured patch glued on is just grey stock cardboard.

A manufactured patch glued onto faux cloth material would look better than one left the way it is on these patch cards - the manufactured patch already looks shabby and now the rest of this year's cards looks homemade and produced to get a lot of the cards out into circulation.
