I've got another month or so until Update shows up, and I'm still desperate for cards. Man, if only there was another cool set I could get cards of...oh, hello there Heritage High Numbers.
They started doing these High # sets back in 2008, and they were alright, but it kind of defeated the purpose when they just had two Topps Update commons per pack. It was a nice idea, but I didn't get too much of them, or, I'd just get good looking commons at card shows or whatever.
Now that it's back, and a lot of the kinks have been ironed out...it seems pretty nice. So I nabbed some hanger boxes of the stuff.
662- Marcus Semien. Apparently he had a nice defensive season in Oakland, but the problem in Oakland was definitely not offense this season.
613- Tyler Olson
617- Micah Johnson. I think they had this guy at 3rd when I was in Chicago. I forget if he did anything.
612- Hansel Robles. How is this the first thing that came to mind?
664- Tyler Flowers, who's apparently starting this year.
564- Delmon Young, who returned to just sucking this season.
595- Trevor Cahill. Everybody's been talking about this one, as Cahill didn't even play a game with the Dodgers.
508- Angel Nesbitt
512- Ruben Tejada. Has been deemed obsolete by Wilmer Flores.
660- Michael 'The Pufferfish' Lorenzen
506- David Buchanan
527- Eduardo Rodriguez, one of the few things that went right for the Red Sox this year.
510- Justin Nicolino
630- STEVEN MATZ ROOKIE. This is a pretty nice one.
574- Sean Rodriguez
516- Vincent Velazquez. Fun Fact: I saw this guy's Major League Debut
Now and Then insert of Bryce Harper.
Combo Card of Cubs Cornerstones Addison Russell and Kris Bryant. Great card, too.
712- Blake Swihart CHROME #'D TO 566. That is actually a really nice pull
629- Shane Victorino. Now on the Angels.
643- Alex Torres. Okay, you do not make a card of Alex Torres and decline to add his Incredible Hulk cap.
614- Tyler Moore
646- AJ Ramos
571- Odrisamer Despaigne, who was one of the many disappointments of the Padres' season.
691- Slade Heathcott rookie, which is pretty nice.
578- Ryan Flaherty
586- Billy Burns, who's been playing really well for the A's.
559- Joba Chamberlain
623- Sam Fuld
696- Brett Anderson, who's had a nice rebound with the Dodgers

547- JR Graham
522- Anthony Ranuado
650- Anthony DeSclafani.
675- Jace Peterson, who went from a Padres farmhand to a starter in Atlanta
667- Gregorio Petit, who's already been released
596- Freddy Galvis, who better be clean this year.
682- Wilmer Difo
570- Dixon Machado
606- Alex Meyer
555- James Shields, looking horrified to be in a Padres uniform.
641- DJ LeMahieu. This has gotta be a nice pull.
698- John Jaso
528- Taylor Featherston
585- Yasmani Grandal, who had a very nice season
697- Orlando Calixte
552- Desmond Jennings, who was on the DL I think for most of the season
610- Everth Cabrera
567- Tommy Pham
517- Colby Rasmus, who had a career renaissance in Houston this year.
Now and Then insert of Adrian Beltre hitting his 400th
723- SHORT PRINT of Yovani Gallardo
Combo of Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista
576- Tim Beckham, about time.
557- Danny Muno
514- Grant Balfour, the ex-closer in Tampa
513- Brad Boxberger, the closer in Tampa
638- Eddie Butler
608- Paulo Orlando, an extra outfielder in the Royals behemoth
611- Jed Lowrie, who just got off the DL
526- Jordan Lyles
622- Will Middlebrooks, who lost his chance
644- Rene Rivera
626- Mike Olt, who lost his chance too
615- Nick Franklin
684- Jose Ramirez, who hasn't lost his chance yet, but give him time
581- Chris Capuano, who was also released by the Yankees
628- Matt den Dekker
678- Tim Cooney
Great boxes with a lot of nice base cards, and a nice Blake Swihart parallel. Solid product, Topps.
