I went the entire holiday season without my local Walmart carrying a single Holiday Edition Megabox, in the one year where there was actually a conscious effort to make it different from the flagship set.
So, 2020 better aim higher than that is what I'm saying.
I did check once again, and...struck out YET again, but I did find a blaster of 2019 Diamond Kings, a set I didn't break very much of, and one that I was fine with in the few packs I did bust of it. Like previous DK releases, it's fine.
So, here's some blaster packs of a middling product to start 2020. Yay.
Bonus Insert Pack:
Squires insert of Forrest Whitley, a Houston prospect who has yet to make his ML debut, after a tumultuous season in the minors.
Team Heroes of Aaron Judge, which I am all for.
Blue Border of Tony Gwynn
Blue Border of SATCHELL PAIGE, which is pretty cool. Plus, this is a blue-border of the VARIATION, the kneeling image of him. So I got a variation of a legend like Satchell Paige. Already off to an awesome start.
And an Artist's Proof of a 2003DK insert of Jose Reyes. I kinda love these old school DK inserts.
10- Smoky Joe Wood, which is a cool deep cut
68- Chris Shaw
Masters of the Game of Mookie Betts. Already very Sox-centric.
85- Rickey Henderson. Nice
43- Corbin Burnes
26- Ty Cobb. Of course
116- Jesus Aguilar
Team Heroes of Juan Soto. He definitely is NOW
1- Stan Musial
18- Carl Erskine.
83- Sam Crawford.
40- Ronald Acuna Jr. Glad he's patterned out a nice career for himself
DK205 insert of Bryce Harper...as a National. Lovely
75- Salvador Perez
32- Brad Keller
97- Cionel Perez
55- LUIS SEVERINO. Nice.
THAT SAME FORREST WHITLEY SQUIRES INSERT. WAY TO GO, PANINI.
89- Rhys Hoskins. Nice
47- Paul Goldschmidt
13- Grover Cleveland Alexander
2002DK insert of Jason Giambi. Love these
Team Heroes of JT Realmuto...still on the Marlins
'5- Roberto Clemente. Always a pleasure to pull a card of his
63- Josh James, as it is a 2019 product after all
70- Giancarlo Stanton
JERSEY KINGS grey-swatch of...Patrick Corbin. I'm very happy with this one, considering Corbin's quality of play recently, even if it is a grey-swatch, and an outdated uniform. Still a great player.
Hall of Fame Heroes of ROBERTO CLEMENTE. THERE HE IS AGAIN.
21- Satchell Paige. There HE is again! This one's the base version
78- Jonathan Loiasiga
So...that was pretty nice. A pretty good relic, a SP of Satchell Paige, and some cool inserts and base. Maybe this year'll be pretty great if THIS is how we're starting.
