Hope everyone is doing well. Today is my eldest son's 10th birthday, but because of school and other activities, the official party happens this weekend. The Wifey and I still cannot believe he's now double digits.
There have been 4 APTBNL posts made on his birthday, although 2 of the posts were made by our resident Jedi. Time to tip things back in my favor with a pack of 2017 Topps Series 2!
12 cards per pack. I believe the Home Run Derby cards are a Target exclusive. Let's see what I got:
#554 - Jason Castro
#664 - Blake Swihart
Sorry for the lack of cropping, I snapped the pics with my cell phone and uploaded them directly to Blogger.
#647 - Jose Reyes
#679 - Jung Ho Kang
Reyes has enjoyed a something of a comeback year with the Mets. Meanwhile, Kang hasn't played at all this season due to not having a working visa, as well as other personal issues. Not sure why he gets a card in the set then.
#648 - Seattle Mariners
#MM-30 - Miguel Cabrera (Memorable Moments)
The Memorable Moments insert come 1 in 8 packs.
#HRD-14 - Prince Fielder (Home Run Derby Champs)
1984 Topps #534 - Pete O'Brien (Rediscover Topps Silver)
The HR Derby insert comes 1 in 4 packs. The back of the pack says Topps Buyback is 1:6, which I assume is the name for Rediscover Topps. It's the silver version, for what it's worth.
#539 - Amir Garrett (RC)
#672 - Luke Maile
#680 - Mike Pelfrey
#675 - Buster Posey
#602 - Alex Dickerson
Here's some backs just because:
Anyway, that's the pack. Happy birthday to my boy, and thanks for reading!
