Aside from a pack of Heritage and a bunch of repacks, I really haven't busted anything since Series 1 so I had that itch. I didn't pay attention to insert ratios or anything like that so I have no idea what I was supposed to get vs. what I actually got. That said, it was advertised pretty noticeably that these Million Dollar Chase cards were one per box.
I still never really figured out the difference between the Griffey above and the Chasing History cards below other than the holofoil-ness. Also, it seems kind of backwards that I would get one of the "regular" ones and four of the holofoils.
I like the idea behind this Bryce Harper insert set but I'm not sure I like the execution. The blob of foil in the scan doesn't help. In case you can't read it, it says "Making Their Mark" and "1st Homer Run" in the foil. I might be impressed if Topps actually used a photo from the feat. I'll look into that later...
Another Carlos Gonzalez. Is this guy ever on his feet? This is an insert I do like, in spite of the foil. A nice action shot with a discernable theme? I'll take it. (Chase it Down is the theme, BTW.)
I have a certain Padres collector in mind for this one already.
I never really thought about it before but I would have thought the yellow and gold would have clashed. Surprisingly, a decent looking card.
I know Gary Sheffield was a bit of a mercenary, playing for a bunch of different teams for a couple of years at a time. I even remember him playing on the Marlins. But because of his 1989 Topps card, I will always associate him with the Brewers. Despite two World Series titles, is this the only way for Marlins players to get inserts? I'm not making fun, I'm seriously asking. I'm not sure I could name more than 2-3 players on either of those championship teams.
No Cubs inserts but I did pull a few of the base cards. I'll save those for individual posts though. I headed over to Wal-Mart where I picked up the blaster for the prize pool and another hanging box for myself. Part 2 tomorrow!
