I snagged some Heritage a few weeks ago at the White Plains show, but I hadn't actually...you know...gone to a store and gotten a box or so of Heritage, like the pilgrims intended it. So, while I was at Target today, I threw in a hanger box of this. Yes, hanger boxes of Heritage don't give you too much anymore, but...I wasn't complaining. There's a snowstorm hitting New York tomorrow, I have enough to complain about.
So, here's what I got:
40- Miguel Cabrera. Not everyday you get a future Hall of Famer on literally your first card of the box. Yes, Miggy's numbers have gone down a little bit, but he's still Miguel Cabrera, and you can't really go wrong with him.
245- C.J. Cron. Now DHing for Tampa.
251- Matt Kemp. Now taking up contract space in Los Angeles.
112- Nolan Arendo AS. Still really digging these All Star cards.
220- Carlos Carrasco, still second-in-command to Corey Kluber, but still a great arm
240- Justin Smoak. Will his 2018 be as good as his 2017? Probably not?
190- Dinelson Lamet, proof of the lack of options San Diego has for pitching
235- Buster Posey AS
34- Tommy Joseph. Now vying for a bench role in Arlington.
354- Felipe Rivero, who'll probably be closing games in Pittsburgh this year.
63- Ian Happ.
159- Jay Bruce as an Indian. Already nabbed this one at the card show.
147- Jharel Cotton. Now on the DL
317- Taylor Rogers
267- Trevor Bauer, another Indians supporter
376- Manny Margot
416- Matt Harvey. This is my one-per-box SP, and not a terrible one at that.
Baseball Flashbacks of Willie McCovey, one of those 'always cool to pull' type of guys.
70- FOIL PARALLEL of JOEY VOTTO, #'D TO 569. Another cool pull of a probable future Hall of Famer.
238- Corey Kluber AS. ANOTHER INDIANS PITCHER. I'm probably gonna get the whole damn rotation here.
43- Jon Lester
375- Whit Merrifield, one of the few definite stars left in Kansas City
236- Joc Pederson. Bet he really wishes it was 2015 about now.
47- Mike Trout AS. Again, always nice to pull a Trout in a pack.
250- Trey Mancini
60- Justin Upton. Another dupe from the show
196- Evan Gattis, defending World Series champion. For a former janitor, that's kinda nice.
1- Batting Leaders
223- Caleb Joseph
228- Wilson Ramos, who needs a nice comeback year
264- Carl Edwards Jr, one of the better up-and-coming middle relievers out there
64- Johnny Cueto
29- Andrelton Simmons, finally a top defender again
270- Matt Adams, now on the Nats
397- Evan Longoria, now on the Giants
Still a pretty great product. Glad I got more of it.
