2015 Topps Series One

Yasiel Puig gazes off into the distance, looking to the future. That future is upon us. The future is 2015 Topps. All hail 2015 Topps.

28 - Alex Cobb - He's good and pretty under the radar, so I could have done worse as a first card of the year.

73 - Freddie Freeman - Freddie Freeman, professional baseball player.

262 - Ryan Braun - The card backs look great this year! Even better -- no one gets to see Ryan Braun's face because I said so.

60 - Michael Wacha - I am more excited to see what Wacha can do this year than just about any other Cardinal, though I'm probably just as curious about Jason Heyward.

271 - Pittsburgh Pirates - Team cards are back.

158 - Kevin Kiermaier - "Oof. Baseball is hard."

A-24 - Ty Cobb Archetypes - He represents aggressiveness, according to the back of the card. All I can think of is the famous picture of him getting ready to kick another player in the face.

Alright! Coupon time!

233 - Carlos Ruiz - Ruiz is a solid catcher.

291 - Mark Reynolds - Reynolds is a Cardinal now and I am not yet completely outraged by this. In due time, folks, in due time...

336 - Matt Carpenter - One of my favorite players, doing that whole third baseman's turn thing that makes my elbow hurt just thinking about it.

 248 - Addison Reed - And that's all, folks.

I like this years design.I'm just coming back to the hobby after a few years and I was planning on only going after Topps High Tek this year but I might have to make an exception.
