I was at Target yesterday for some socks-- well, really I was hoping to find some packs of Topps Update. No dice! I grabbed this repack with a 2014 Topps Update card on the front. I'm a sucker for cards featuring a Target Field patch, so I picked this one over the others on the shelf.
Here's the pack that came with. I have to be honest, I have zero interest in Triple Play - anyone out there collect this set?
The oldest card in the repack - this off center '82 Donruss Glenn Hubbard. Glenn was born in Germany, a bit of trivia he shares with Twins Uber Prospect Max Kepler. Hubbard made the NL All-Star Team in 1983 following a solid 1982 season. He's currently coaching the Kansas City system.
The most recent card in the repack was from the 2014 Topps Update series. Cowgill's 2015 season was derailed by a wrist injury, but he will try to rebound next season and make a case for being a part of the Angels' outfield.
Hey, a Hit! David's last minor league season was in 2011, a year after this card was made. Any Hooks fans out there? Cook had some decent pop, hitting over 20 homers in three different minor league seasons.
Some awesome 90's junk
When Julio was young!
Is this a variation, or is this the regular base card? Either way, it's a great shot.
