2019 Topps Fire Rack Pack


Hope everyone is doing well.  Time for a break in the dollar National packs with a pack of one of the newer Topps releases:
The millennial who I'm paired with on 3rd shift has been known to use the term "fire" when describing something awesome.  We (my supervisor and I) would then have to put him in his place when we'd have to tell him who Ricky Martin or Barry White is.  Anyway, here's what I got:

#64 - Kyle Schwarber
#175 - Yoan Moncada

I didn't know Fire was a thing this year so I didn't know what the design looked like.  This is the most un-Fire-y of the 3 Target exclusive releases; I'm still expecting fire and explosions and stuff.  It's not horrible, but it's certainly unexpected.

#91 - Jon Duplantier (RC)
#168 - Eloy Jimenez (RC)

Got a couple rookies here, one much more known than the other.  It's hard to enjoy the last name only card front when you don't really know who the player is.

#180 - Miguel Andujar (Orange parallel #22 / 299)
#SM-4 - Aaron Nola (Smoke & Mirrors Blue Chip parallel)

The Orange parallel comes 1 in every 6 packs.  The Smoke & Mirrors Blue Chip comes 1 in every 4 packs. 

#FIU-10 - Aaron Judge (Fired Up Blue Chip parallel)
#86 - Jake Bauers (RC) (Blue Chip base parallel)

The Fired Up Blue Chip comes 1 in every 4 packs.  The Bauers rookie is the 1 exclusive Blue Chip base parallel card promised on the front of the pack.

And thanks to Topps for putting that I in the Fired Up card number.

#158 - Jacob DeGrom
#76 - Brad Keller (RC)

Here's the checklist for the curious.

#108 - Brian Anderson
#86 - Jake Bauers (RC)

It's a Jake Bauers hot pack!  This pack truly is fire!

Here are some backs for the millennials:

Anyway, that's the pack.  Have a good week everyone, and thanks for reading!

I liked the Fire brand with football but never quite liked the baseball counterparts. Thanks for sharing. I usually pick up one pack of these each year but may take a pass on them this time.
