GQ Sampler

This will probably be the extent of my 2020 GQ breaking.

Pack 1:
At least it is a solid start for the Jays PC, opening with a card for it. If I tend to think that the first card I see from a set influences my feel for it, then I guess I might be breaking more of it than I first thought.

Pack 2:
Here's another pack leading off with a Jays card. Kay came to the Jays in the trade that sent Stroman to the Mets.

Pack 3:
While I didn't get a super rare pull in this retail sampler like I did with the Opening Day, I still did get a sorta rare insert with this blue parallel (1:55). Not a indigo parallel - those are something different. In addition to different shades, the indigos are /250, while the blues are /150. I guess Topps pick-a-parallel colour wheel ended up on the same spot for these.
I might as well show you the back of this one as well. At least the numbering design isn't at the microscopic level it was for the past few years.

Pack 4:
Your parallels. The blahest of the pack in terms of content.

But there you have it!


  1. Wow, you're right. The green parallels were a dud. Bummer.

  2. Mookie's been all over the place lately.
