Hope everyone is doing well. Today is my 16th wedding anniversary, but The Wifey is working today so I'm home with the boys, who apparently gets a 4 day weekend for Columbus Day? Anyway, since we have a post every day this month so far (and Blogger does not show a pending post), I might as well put a celebratory post up on the site to keep the streak going.
Prior anniversary posts were retro, so let's change things up a bit with a pack of 2017 Topps Heritage High Number!
I guess it's still kind of retro since it's a Heritage pack. My son got a blaster of this for his birthday; he was sure to rub it in that he got cards of a product I have yet to purchase. I snagged a pack and took some pics before he ran off with them. 9 cards in the pack...here's what he got:
#525 – Nick Hundley
#558 – Jesus Aguilar (RC)
There's 225 cards in the set, with the last 25 cards being the dreaded short print.
#507 – Brandon McCarthy
#597 – Jeremy Jeffress
Jeffress wound up back with the Brewers at the trade deadline, where he was heavily utilized in
Milwaukee's attempts to get into the playoffs.
#8/15 - Christian Arroyo (1968 Topps Game Rookies Set)
#531 – Andrew Toles (RC)
The Game Rookies insert comes 1 in 8 packs. I had to look up the name, as I'm not up on my Giants rookies. He hit .192 with 3 homers and 14 RBIs this year.
#533 – Cameron Rupp
#685 – German Marquez (RC)
Many a blogger think there's some shenanigans going on with the backgrounds. I can't say I blame them. There were so many perfect blue skies on some other cards.
#609 – Matt Carasiti (RC)
Another rookie card and a couple of backs finish off the pack.
Anyway, that's it for now. More later. Happy anniversary to The Wifey, and thanks for reading!
