2015 Panini Contenders Baseball

I usually stay far away from college prospect type sets, but I found a blaster of this stuff at a discounted price and there really wasn't much competition on the shelves that day. Here is the first pack.

7 - Trea Turner - Exhibit C on why you should probably scrub your social media history after you become a so-called adult. Better yet, maybe just don't say or do stupid ignorant stuff in the first place? I'm guessing agents will get a handle on this stuff on the future.

97 - Tyler Naquin - Another guy I've heard of, which is more than I expect out of one of these sets.

88 - Tate Matheny - Son of the recently ousted Cardinals manager. He's a center fielder that's spent this season at AA.

1 - Dansby Swanson Class Reunion - We know this guy. He's still trying to figure out how to hit at the big league level.

50 - Tyler Krieger School Colors - I had to Google Kreiger, who is in his second straight season at AA in the Cleveland system.

15 - Frank Howard Old School Colors - A throwback to the wayback years. Thank you for not colorizing this, Panini.

I always like products like Contenders, especially when they throw in guys like Frank Howard, Reggie Jackson, Barry Larkin and John Elway from their early days.

Love the Old School Colors inserts. Great looking card of Howard.
