2023 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball

 I got a hobby pack on 2023 Topps Heritage High Number set. Nine cards in a pack. Filled with rookies, players on new teams, or didn't get a card til now. I wonder how many are still with the team after 2023 season. Let's rip.

651 - Hobie Harris - first card is a rookie. He made his debut playing in 16 games. Signed a minor league contract with the Twins few weeks ago. First card of a player on a new team for 2024 season.
683 - Tristan Beck - second rookie card in this pack. Played in 33 games in 2023 season..

563 - Gus Varland - a third rookie and a player I've seen played in the minors. Pitched 16 games games for two teams before ending his season on the injured list.
663 - Peyton Battenfield - fourth rookie in this pack and wasn't with the team when the season ended. Pitched in 7 games for the Guardians bouncing between AAA club and the injured list. Would be DFA'd  a month before the season ended and got picked up by the Mets.
RP-10 - Kevin Kelly - a fifth rookie and an insert card. Had a decent rookie season getting in 57 games with ERA of 3.09. Look to be a good pick up for the Rays consider he was traded for cash.
502 - Christian Bethancourt - eventful offseason as Rays released him then Guardians claimed him only to be shipped to the Marlins.
513 - Jarred Kelenic - now with the Braves after getting traded in the offseason
549 - Jose Caballero - another rookie card. He played in 104 games in 2023. Got traded to the Rays during the offseason. Mariners making lot of trades during the offseason.

526 - Jared Schuster - played 11 games in his rookie year bouncing between the Braves and AAA club Gwinnet. Now with the White Sox via trade.

I got 7 rookie cards in this along with 6 players playing on new teams in 2024. Ready for baseball?
