Let's dig into the second Series 2 pack

Firstly, I've knocked $1.00 off the price for the slots in my hockey break. Hopefully, a small deduction will get us to the needed slots to go with this.  3 more folks buying in, and it's a go! $17.00 within Canada, $20.00 elsewhere, and $10.00 if you want an extra slot.

Alright, on to the baseball!

Photographically speaking, this one was my favourite from this pack. It's from right after his no-hitter. Sure, it is a getty images picture, but it's a great moment captured on cardboard for a base card.
This might be the most suitable photo in the set. I only wish there were some evidence that he caught the ball.

The only other really notable photo came from the inserts:

Holy eye bulge!
In terms of inserts, it really was a Rockies hot pack. The purple really looks great for this subset. Almost regal. I'm not sure how appropriate a slide at home is for a stolen base themed card, but it's still an interesting shot.
No Blue Jays in the pack, and this Ike Davis was the only Met I pulled. Or Las Vegas 51er.
Here's my mini! No complaints about a Brooks mini.

And my first hit from Series 2:

A manu-pin! I'm definitely happy with the Trout, but if someone pulls a Blue Jays or Mets one similar to this from 2013, it's available for trade.

But, to end on a bummer:

14 dupes from the first package. Bah!


  1. You can never tell with Bourn, his glove has had some springs in it this year. I'm not a fan of the "Chasing History" inserts, but the Ike Davis card looks sharp. I've always been a semi-fan of his because I actually watched that first game on TV, during the end of my "in college-don't care about baseball that much" days.

  2. I am officially on the lookout for a Blue Jay or Met manu-pin.

  3. Love the Bailey! I'll have to get that Bourn for my "at the wall" collection as well.
