Hope everyone is doing well. These pics were still in my Scan folder, so since it's been while since we had a post here, I might as well break the drought. It's a 2018 Topps Series 1 Rack Pack!
The boys each got me a pack of cards for my birthday last year. My older son (the baseball loving one) got me a pack of Series 2. My younger son (the baseball meh one) got me this one. Here's what I got:
#270 – Jackie Bradley Jr.
#303 – Luis Severino
#142 – Adam Jones
#345 – Jose Reyes
#24 – Martin Maldonado
I think everything that needs to be typed about Series 1 has been typed already, so I see no need to
type a whole lot.
#170 – Christian Yelich
#50 – Anthony Rizzo
#350 – Clayton Kershaw
#18 – Rafael Devers (RC)
I really had no clue that Yelich had MVP caliber stuff. Maybe it was because he played for the
#276 – Ozzie Albies (RC)
#139 – Zach Davies (League Leaders)
#114 – Cody Bellinger (League Leaders)
#34 – Luis Severino (League Leaders)
Here come the inserts:
#SSS-18 – Felix Hernandez (Superstar Sensations) 1:3
#83-95 – Francisco Lindor 1:2
#LTM-CB – Cody Bellinger (Legends In The Making) 1:4#KB-27 – Sets Cubs Rookie RBI Record 1:4
The Superstar Sensations came 1 in 3 packs, while the 1983 insert came 1 in 2. Both the Legends and KB inserts came 1 in 4 packs.
#MLM-BP – Buster Posey (Major League Materials) (12/50)
Woo! Retail mojo! If I read the odds on the back right, Major League Materials came 1 in 947 packs.
When I showed the boys the card, my eldest freaked out...that's part of Buster Posey's bat! He used it in a game! He held that piece of wood! I wasn't going to go into the controversies about relics with the kid; I was more concerned at the time about making sure he didn't take the card from me and put his dirty paws on my relic card. I asked my younger kid, who chose the pack for me, what he thought of the card.
"He's good, right daddy? That's a good card?"
#159 – Joc Pederson
#160 – Masahiro Tanaka
#231 – Joe Mauer
#138 – Luiz Gohara (RC)
#95 – Tyler Mahle
#118 – Ian Happ (Future Stars)
#8 – Detroit Tigers Team Card
#2 – Clayton Kershaw (League Leaders)
#120 – Carlos Carrasco
#220 – Nelson Cruz
#69 – Jed Lowrie
#103 – Christian Vazquez
#131 – Jonathan Schoop
#340 – Gary Sanchez
#5 – Chris Tillman
#13 – Jay Bruce
Here's a bunch of backs because Buster Posey's good:
Anyway, that's the pack. A cool pack to get for my birthday, even if it was from the non-baseball crazy kid. More eventually...thanks for reading!
