I've done pretty well with this "just one, two or so" packs thing this year, especially with baseball. I've picked up autos of Graig Nettles and Jorge Posada and a short print of Tanaka. Which would be great if I was a Yankees fan. Which I'm not. But they were all nice pulls, especially the Posada.
So, I went to the LCS and grabbed a jumbo pack of Topps S2. Since they're just out and whatnot. I'd limit myself to this, since I went whole hog with Heritage, and will limit myself to a factory set of '14 flagship. The luck continued, as I pulled a hit. It was an auto. Despite being a stickergraph, it was a pretty good one. And the best thing is that I can finally highlight a great baseball pull that wasn't a Yankee!
But, I'll go through this in order.
Michael Pineda - And I start with a Yankee. That's never good.
Eury De La Rosa
Jorge De La Rosa
Brandon Phillips - Here's the first keeper photograph. With a bonus appearance of Mr. Redlegs.
AJ Pollock - Interesting collation with the AJs together. But that still doesn't top my Mike Carp/Mike Trout back-to-back last year.
Michael Wacha - The Future is Now
Robinson Cano - Saberstars
Jackie Bradley Jr.
So, my decisions to putchase only a couple packs of certain products pays off again with a very good, and seemingly very tough pull. As I said, if an Oriole fan wants to make a crazy offer. I'll listen.
