2012 Golden Sparkle Chicago Cubs Checklist

The Golden Sparkle set is is just one of many Parallel sets I collect from Topps. This set is a take off of the Diamond Anniversary cards which I just fell in love with. The actual name of them are 2012 Topps Golden Moments which is also the name of a insert, how stupied! With that in mind, it's not a huge surprise in the world of Topps ... Check out the picks below. I still don’t have the 2012 Series 1 Golden Sparkle #270b Starlin Castro SP it may be super short printed or Topps didnt make the Golden Sparkle Variation (checklist below). If you have one let me know thx.

  1. I'm about 99% sure that Golden Sparkles weren't made for any of the Series 1 SPs....I know I've never seen one of the Castro SP.

  2. Thx WW for the insight, will stop looking.
