Jumbo Value Pack #5 – Is It Even Worth Writing About?

6b_tom_seaver_1As you can tell from the title, nothing spectacular about this pack. Not only did I pull mostly doubles, but there were only 35 cards (31 base set, 1 parallel, 4 inserts) in the 36 card pack.  I know eventually I would run into a lot of doubles but didn’t think it would come in packs #4 and #5. I did pull a second 2015 Topps cover man, Yasiel Puig (#350) so I will be sending that out for an autograph.

My streak of packs containing at least one San Francisco Giant is now at five. Although they are doubles I did pull a Santiago Casilla (#156) and Joaquin Arias (#299) from the pack.

If there is a theme with this pack, it would have to be pitchers. Of the seven base set cards I needed, four were of pitchers, one was a leader card featuring pitchers, and the last was a parallel card.

The inserts/parallels started with my first Baseball History insert, Tom Seaver – Miracle Mets Walk-Off On Bunt (#6B). The set consists of 30 different cards, numbered 1-15 with an “A” card and a “B” card. The A” card features a non-baseball event that occurred in a particular year. The “B” card features a baseball highlight from that same year. The other inserts were Ted Williams – Highlight of the Year (#H-8), Jorge Soler – First Home Run Silver Stripe (FH-01), and Robinson Cano – Free Agent 40 (F40-2). I also pulled my second gold border parallel, Ubaldo Jimenez (#157).
