Several weeks back, I was itching to get into a small group break of 3 boxes of the new 2021 Tribute release. I saw the Mets were available, but they sold in the moments before I decided to pull the trigger.
But I still had the itch!
So what else was available?
Oakland wasn't too expensive. They had a decent array of active players and legends as hits. Let's try that slot!
Out of 3 boxes worth, with 18 packs, and 3 cards (1 hit, two base/parallels) per pack, I got a single base card. That was still one more card than the Mets got, so I'm at least ahead of the game there.
But I got some hits as well.
So, A's at Rangers. 9/13/19.
Looks like Ramon made the most of the 1 from his 1-for-4 day, hitting a 3-run homer in a 14-9 slugfest win for Oakland. I always worry when I come across one of those that he spent the game on the bench, although that's more for pitcher cards than hitters.
