Every year, my family and I head out for a last weekend getaway "hurrah" before school starts. This past weekend, we headed to Little Rock to do some tax-free back-to-school shopping. While in one of the Walmarts, I came across a 2015 Topps Series Two box that had 10 packs plus a Home Run Patch card. Attached to this box was a "Save $2.50 instantly" coupon. A coupon. On baseball cards. On THIS year's baseball cards. Interesting.
Well, I bought the box, so we'll have even more packs for the breaks. And, today, I am opening one regular pack and the Home Run patch card. Let's see what we get:
Mike Moustakas - Royals - Ventura County Royals (Wahoo!!)
Ruben Tejada - Mets - Free Agent
Alex Gordon - Royals - Ventura County Royals (Wahoo!! x2)
Delmon Young - Orioles - Saitama Sushi (Wahoo!!)
Dee Gordon - Marlins - Free Agent
Erik Goeddel Gold (1181/2015) - Mets - Free Agent
Tony Gwynn Sr 1st Home Run - Padres - Backstop Cards (Wahoo!!)
Joaquin Benoit - Padres - Free Agent
Ryan Raburn - Indians (Wahoo!) - Free Agent
Corey Hart - Pirates - Thorzul (Wahoo!!)
Wow! Two inserts in a single pack. That is very cool! Congratulations to Backstop Cards for a very nice-looking 1st homer card! Also giving a hand to the VC Royals who managed two hits from the pack - almost back-to-back.
Now, let's see what this 1st Home Run patch card looks like...
Reggie Jackson - A's - Cobb County Superchickens (Wahoo!!)
Sweet! Congratulations, CC Superchickens! The 1st Home Run cards feature a medallion (presumably metal) embedded in the card along with a photo/rendering of the player from the time of the 1st home run. Pretty cool!
