I've only purchased two actual packs of new cards this year and they were typically (for me) so dull that I didn't think they were worth boring you with. Recently I did a bit of Ebay bargain hunting and came up with my own "pack". These eight cards, all won in separate auctions, were $1.24 shipped.
I know the "Perspectives" concept got mixed reviews but I like it. This is the Chrome version. Ichiro must be one of the most universally respected guys in the game. Who would have believed when he joined the Mariners at age 27 that he'd go on the join the 3,000 hit club? Amazing!
Not a rookie card but a nice example of one of the "faces of the game".
As a predominantly NL fan I didn't see a lot of Carlos Delgado. His numbers are outstanding though. He's the HR and RBI record holder for Puerto Rican players and was elected to the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame (2015).
This is a nice looking insert of The Freak. My wife likes him. I may give this one to her.
The next two cards I picked up as additions to my Jewish heritage player collection.
Many say Mike Trout is the best in the game. Baseball Reference's top 4 similar batters through age 23 are: Mantle, F. Robinson, Griffey, and Aaron. That tells you something.
Jon's having an awesome 2nd year with the best team in baseball (16-4). I only own the two 2016 Heritage cards here, though the 1967 set is one of my all-time favorites.
Maybe this time it won't take another two months before my next post. Thanks for taking the time to visit.
