2021 Topps Big League Baseball

Better late than never, Topps finally got 2021 Topps Big League out the door, just in time for Spring 2022. Here's a blaster pack.

3 - Teoscar Hernandez - Hernandez is off to a slow start after winning back to back Silver Slugger Awards and garnering some MVP votes.

162 - Brailyn Marquez - Marquez made one appearance with the Cubs in 2020 that lasted two-thirds of an inning. It's the only appearance he's made in a professional baseball game since 2019.

48 - Andres Gimenez - Gimenez is off to a good start as the Guardians may finally have a replacement for Francisco Lindor.

58 - Xander Bogaerts - Bogaerts is a bona fide star at his peak playing for a struggling team, so you know what that means.

271 - Devin Williams Award Winners - There are a bunch of Award Winners cards in the base set. Williams won the NL ROY award in 2020.

191 - Cody Bellinger

244 - Kenta Maeda - Maeda is still rehabbing from Tommy John surgery.

225 - Juan Soto - This card just looks a bit goofy.

DW-13 - Cody Bellinger Defensive Wizards - These inserts have a very loud '80s look to them.

294 - Mike Brosseau Orange - Each pack has an orange parallel in it. They look better matched with some team colors than others. I wouldn't say the Rays make a good combination here.
