Mailbag: Baseball Card Breakdown

Last night, Gavin over at Baseball Card Breakdown recapped the cards that I sent his way. It seems appropriate to follow up with some of the goodies sent my way.
One of the big things was putting the final touches on my 2018 Archives base set. While there were a couple costly rookies in the mix, this was my favourite of the bunch. George Kell is not an expected inclusion as a base card in a 2018 release.
Random Seaver!
Random Wright!
Now, onto the main events of the mailbag. If you've been reading BCB for a bit, you'll know that Gavin likes Topps Retired. So, here's a Blue Jays card for this. I really like this Dave Stieb photo since it is a rare one where he's clean shaven.
And the big one! Zack Wheeler is the #3 man in the Mets pitching rotation at this time, and that's not really a slight considering who is in the #1 and #2 slots. This is numbered /10, and is the ebay 1/1 version at 10/10. The relic is only one colour, but it is a patch which one will notice if they examine it.

There you have it! Another mailbag post. I'll probably return to the "source" repack(s) with my next post.
