The Good, the bad and the Ugl...errr.....Awesome!

I picked up two more rack packs of Heritage today.  What can I say, I love the card stock of Heritage, and I sure as heck ain't buying the Base parallels Opening Day that came out recently (maybe I'll find a group break somewhere).  So I'm up to 5 rack packs of Heritage, or almost 100 cards.  What did I get today?

The Good

 I pulled another relic, the second in 5 packs, and Marichal is pretty cool.  But that's not even what's so good about my two packs today.  I only got 3 inserts (we'll see the 3rd later), which means.... more base cards!  I'm a set builder at heart, so most inserts don't do much for me.  Frankly I'd prefer to find a Stanton fan so this card can be where it belongs.

The Bad

 Here we come to a running theme on this blog.  I wish I wasn't always talking about this, but these 7 cards are all dupes.  I have 82 different cards and 7 dupes.  C'mon Topps.  really?

The Awesome

 The card on the left is just a base card, but it's Mike Trout and the guy who stole two of Trout's MVP awards.  I would never be able to get my hands on the Trout mini unless I lucked into pulling one.  I could certainly never afford to buy one on the secondary market.  I guess this was almont something of a Trout hot pack. 


  1. That's probably the best Heritage pull I've seen so far, and to get one of a guy/team you collect is outstanding. Congrats!

    1. And, sadly, it took me a minute to realize what I had. I don't really pay attention to odds etc. I just saw Trout was happy with that.

  2. What the heck? The Trout mini is going for triple digits? (jaw drops)

  3. Great success! Congrats on getting that Trout mini. More than makes up for the dupes, I'd say!
