With my fourth pack comes the onslaught of doubles – 23 of them! After breaking open the pack, I only needed seven of the 31 base cards for my set. I did get my first variation card of the year, so that’s a bonus. It was #177 Paul Konerko, shown shaking hands with fans as he walks off U.S. Cellular Field for the last time on September 28, 2014.
I added one San Francisco Giant in the latest pack, rookie outfielder Gary Brown (#139). He made his MLB debut on September 2, 2014 and hit .429 with 1 RBI in seven games for the Giants.
In only my fourth pack I pulled my second Rainbow Foil (1:10), this time it was Boston Red Sox rookie Rusney Castillo (#144).
The inserts included Mark McGwire’s Archtypes (#A-11), Jason Heyward First Home Run – Silver Stripe (#FHR-12), Eddie Veder First Pitch (#FP-04), and The Babe Ruth Story – From Hurler to Hitter (#BR-5)
