2012 Topps baseball battle one

Time to talk 2012 Topps Baseball. Every year I pick up two packs and see which pack is better. I score it one to ten with ten being awesome. First a comment about the design. I am not all that thrilled with the design. I like the white borders and the logo, but I really liked last years design and this is ok, not great. Maybe it will grow on me.

Play ball!
