Nothing against Chipper Jones (the pull from my first blaster) but that's more like it. Looking at the checklist this card would rank at the top of my want list. So immediately this blaster was a winner.
Sandy Koufax no-hit the Cubs in 1965. My first blaster was also a Cubs "no hitter". More redemption here:
There was also a David DeJesus basecard.
A few more highlights:
Another complaint that I had about my first blaster was the fact that the red parallels were almost all duplicates of base cards in the same box cutting my number of players by a large amount. This new blaster, with Wal-Mart blue variations, did not have that problem at all.
Hey, .500 is great for a hitter.
