Jumbo Value Pack #4 – Oh My, Doubles!

177_paul_konerko_var_1 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)

Base Set
96 Junior Lake – Chicago Cubs
139 Gary Brown – San Francisco Giants RC
157 Ubaldo Jimenez – Baltimore Orioles
229 Bryan Morris – Miami Marlins
236 Zack Wheeler – New York Mets

Jumbo Value Pack #2 – Buster Posey!

Buster Posey

I have some catching up to do so here is my second jumbo value pack, I bought this pack over a month ago! After breaking open the pack I was pleased to find no doubles, I needed all 31 base set cards, two parallels, and three inserts.

The highlight for me was C Buster Posey (#275), all decked out in his catchers gear with the appearance he is looking a runner back to a base? In addition to Posey, San Francisco Giants teammates’ P Tim Lincecum (#138) and C Andrew Susac (#232) were also in the pack.

This pack was loaded with some nice cards. Included were eight more All-Stars from 2014, 1B Brandon Moss (#35) of the Oakland Athletics, SS Alexei Ramirez (#65) of the Chicago White Sox, P Adam Wainwright (#80) of the St. Louis Cardinals, OF Giancarlo Stanton (#150) of the Miami Marlins, 2B Chase Utley (#163) of the Philadelphia Phillies, 1B Jose Abreu (#176) of the Chicago White Sox, C Devin Mesoraco (#182) of the Cincinnati Reds, and 3B Matt Carpenter (#336) of the St. Louis Cardinals.

I have always been a fan of the Topps All-Star Rookie subset and my first one is a nice one, 1B Jose Abreu (#176). He also is part of the “Future Stars” subset.

Rookie cards were almost non-existent in this pack, with only 2B Dilson Herrera (#241) of the New York Mets.

The parallels included a Rainbow Foil (1:10) and a Gold Border (#/2015 / 1:6). The Rainbow Foil was veteran 1B Ryan Howard (#51) of the Philadelphia Phillies. The Gold Border parallel was OF Khris Davis (#115) (0779/2015) of the Milwaukee Brewers.

The three inserts were pretty good also! I think anytime you can pull a Nolan Ryan (Free Agent 40) or Babe Ruth (Highlight of the Year) card today it is a good day, add to that young superstar in Yasiel Puig (First Home Run – Silver Stripe).
