For my second pack, I picked up one topped by Kyle Schwarber. I am not really sure why but he is a fairly big name rookie despite being hurt for most of this season.
My final pack I picked the super rookie from the hated Dodgers Corey Seager. While I can't stand the guy based on his team affiliation, I do know he is a really good player.
No luck in pulling a MadBum but getting 1 of my 2 most wanted players in 3 packs of a 50 card set is pretty solid hobby luck.
Oh yeah, the free give away was a Kris Bryant card so we got 3:
I got myself 2 packs of Chrome...
I also picked up 2 packs of Ginter...
A couple of Giants in the 2 packs but I had already picked up the team set.
I dug through a couple boxes of 1972 Topps cards and picked up some cards for my set:
I thought $10 for 25 cards was a solid deal and it inches me closer to the set. For those of you that have completed this set or are close, any tips on the high numbers? They are fairly scarce and super costly everywhere I have looked.
Finally I bought a box of 2016 Donruss Optic. For some reason I was drawn to the product. Here are the highlights of my box:
I believe there a couple hot boxes in each case where each pack has a numbered parallel in each of the 20 packs and I was lucky enough to get one of those boxes:
In addition to the numbered parallels, each box promised 2 autos and I was extremely happy with my pulls:
It isn't every day you pull an auto of a Hall of Famer, at least not in the ARPSmith household. This Kaline auto is a great addition to my HOF collection and while a already have one auto of Mr. Tiger in my collection, there is always room for another. My other auto is a nice blue bordered Rated Rookie auto of Giants outfielder Mac Williamson. The card is numbered 62/75. Over all I have to rate this box extremely high and it made my National Baseball Card Day a success.
