Hope everyone is doing well. Time for a break in the dollar National packs with a pack of one of the newer Topps releases:
#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!
