Jumbo Update Box Break - Pack #9

Before I start, if anybody wants the Gerrit Cole SSP that I pulled in the first pack I busted from this box, it is up on ebay. There's about 4 hours left it the auction as I type this.
If you're interested, click here, and bid away!

OK. After two packs with nothing but base dupes, and a much needed repack therapy session, I'm back to the box. There have to be some new cards in this one, right?

Wilson Betemit - Not a dupe! YAY!
Bryan Shaw
Jose Beras
Alex Sanabia
Robert Andino
Maicer Izturis - A Blue Jays card!
Matt Adams
David Wright - A Mets card!
Matt Thornton
Davan Viciedo
Christian Yelich - A pretty good rookie card.
Joe Mauer
Wil Myers - And another pretty good one.
Miguel Cabrera
Glen Perkins
Michael Pineda
Chris Archer - I'm thinking Chris Archer won't need to be an addition to the update set next year.
Logan Schaefer
Sonny Gray - And a third pretty good rookie card.
Danny Salazar
Ben Zobrist
Jason Grilli
Cliff Lee
Domonic Brown
Shawn Marcum - Gold - Finally a Mets parralel. Unfortunately, it's Marcum.
Luke Scott - Emerald
Jose Fernandez - Making Their Mark
Roberto Clemente - Chasing History
Frank Thomas - 1971 Mini - That's a pretty nice looking card, especially the way the uniform colours work with the border.
Postseason Heroes - Roy Halladay
Didi Gregorius - Chasing History Auto. Not too bad of a hit. It isn't someone who was super high on my wantlist, but it was certainly there. For the simple reason that I wanted a hit of a guy named Didi Gregorius.
Yasiel Puig - Whew. That's the last of them.
Vance Worley
Miguel Tejeda
Greg Holland
Al Alburquerque - Does he hate sauerkraut?
Scott Feldman
Corey Kluber
Preston Clairborne
Jean Segura
Brandon Phillips - Some may not like the All-Star cards, but they are the only cards that give you an opportunity to see more than two different uniforms on a single card.
Joe Nathan
Chris Denorfia
Dan Haren
Brock Peterson
Mark Melancon
Kevin Frandsen
Nate Jones
Ty Wigginton - The best thing about this card? Learning that Ty Wigginton was still playing and somehow warranted a card in Update. 57 AB can do that to a guy.
Brian Wilson

I think there were about 5 dupes in here - a far better result. With 1 pack left, I'm about 30 or so out. With the collation, I should make it. Let's see when I post them tomorrow, and then catch up on the ol' mailbag.
