2 Years down, but more to go and a nice pull

A small "yay me" for being here for two years officially. I had done a few posts before 2016 ahead of really going all out starting January 1, 2016. I like to have something up every day to share and have been doing that since the Jan 1 date (over 700 posts now...).

So, I thought why not open a pack of something a little different today, and maybe a few more packs this week before getting to the Toronto box come December 1st. By a little different for mean, I mean, something more recent. We will tackle some recent year Topps packs for the next few days which I hope you join me for. I figure there won't be much of these cards come December - those will likely be 80s and 90s goodness.

So today....

So let's see what we end up with...

Kyle apparently has a dislike for losing based on the back of this card...

At first I thought this may be a purposeful misprint, but on close inspection, and seeing backs that are perfectly fine online - looks like just a small misprint on the ink. Still - I'll take it for adding to my error binder regardless. Honestly, didn't expect I would be adding a card to that collection from the pack.

Definite star (all-star the last couple years)

Any time I see a card of his, all I can think is "I'm coo coo for cocoa puffs"

Just after leaving Toronto (just missing out on a Jay card...)

Decent thought for the card, but being a Jays fan, not a subject I am specifically thrilled with...would have rather the Jays win the division....

I should say that I do like the use of the base design, no surprise there though.

Last card out of the pack made me believe that the pack knew I was hoping it would be a special one for this occasion...

Wow. Clubhouse Collection packs fall one per 64 packs, so not the longest of odds, but getting Mike would make that a lot longer. Speechless on getting this, just lucky to have pulled this in general, let alone today.

Great pack on a great day, and thank you for everyone out there for following the blog, for initiating conversation, for any trades I have been able to do with you, and for being part of the great community!

    1. It may not always be interesting to everyone, but I like having something fun to do, and I like being able to share my fun in this hobby of ours.

  4. Congrats on the Trout! If you're not going to get something from your own team, always nice to get something of a star that you can trade!
