Just 1 Pack - Of Topps 2014 S1 Retail Hanger

I've busted hobby jumbo, time to try some retail. In this case, a hanging box from Walmart. I'm guessing Canadian Wally Worlds up here will never get the blue parallels, as there was none of those. Still have to hit a Target to get some red parallels and then sleep on it until Heritage drops next month.

Chris Owings - First card out, and just 2.5 years early for the other Olympics, he's looking to shot put the baseball.
Wade Miley
Yu Darvish
Derek Jeter
Marcell Ozuna
Jeff Samardzija
Mike Carp
Boone Logan
Alex Gordon
Justin Smoak
Josh Fields
Adeiny Hechavarria
Josmil Pinto - Walk-off celebration shot #1.
Aaron Hicks
Jayson Werth - Whatever he's pointing at is probably a SSP in this set.
Jonathan Lucroy - Walk-off celebration shot #2.
Jaime Garcia
Joel Hanrahan
Ian Desmond
Miguel Montero
Matt Davidson
Mike Minor
Bruce Rondon
Yasiel Puig - If I was building the set, I'd be happy to get this one out of the way.
Eric Stults
Ryan Sweeney
Seth Smith
Enny Romero
Ryan Cook - Throwback awesomeness!
David DeJesus
Wilmer Flores - The first Met in the pack.
Manny Machado
Ben Revere
Johnny Cueto
Lance Lynn
Don Kelly
Jonathan Herrera
Andre Rienzo
Jhoulys Chacin
Jeremy Guthrie
Michael Saunders - I'm not sure why he's tipping his hat, but this will fit nicely in my CanCon collection.
Jonathan Papelbon
Yordano Ventura
Henderson Alvarez - It's a nice celebration shot, but purely Where's Waldo? Seriously, where is Henderson in this? I'm guessing he's one of the two Marlins cap wearers in the middle of all this.
Evan Longoria
Juan Lagares - Gold Parallel - Nice that my first gold parallel is also a Mets card.
Yunel Escobar - Red Foil Parallel - He doesn't have any eye black on in the shot. That's a good thing.
Jimmie Foxx - 1989 Mini - Nice to see an insert of a legend that doesn't make that many appearances in these sort of things.
Mike Trout - Upper Class
Hyun-Jin Ryu - Yeah. I think I'm officially tired of this subset. Especially the multiple cards for several players. The fact there's 3 Zack Wheelers make that pull less special.
Andrelton Simmons - Trajectory Relics - Not bad, a hit from retail. Trade baited already, though.
Scooter Gennett - Yellow Parallel - Maybe it's the yellow jersey. Maybe it's the fact he's named Scooter. Either way, this carde is great.
Jack Hannahan - Yellow Parallel
Matt Holliday
Alex Rios
Jason Grilli
Martin Perez
Joe Blanton
Alex Rodriguez
Drew Stubbs
Matt Carpenter
Matt Tuiasosopo
Oswaldo Arcia
Chris Getz
Justin Turner
Rickie Weeks - Back-to-back-to-back turning twos.
JD Martinez
Esmil Rogers - And the only Blue Jay.
Buddy Boshers - Might be my favourite name this season.
Justin Ruggiano
