A Quick Update

I went into Target this morning after VOTING (if you live in the United States, there's probably an election in your area today, so think about VOTING), and as is my way, I was drawn to the card aisle.

One Blaster of Topps Chrome Update was casually strewn atop the now dusty boxes of Topps Series 1 and 2 and the other sports like Racing, Football, and Basketball.

I was not a big fan of Topps Update this year, but who doesn't love Chrome! And I am a sucker for Topps Rookie All-Star inserts. Hey look, Yoan Moncada as a Red Sox infielder.

Both Rookie of the Year winners are represented, along with plenty more rookies from 2016 and 2017.

Ngeope had the best photo on the cards I pulled, and there was a decent percentage of cards I will actually keep.

Finally, this card means I will not buy another pack in 2017, because my luck has already hit its peak-

Neat! I will hold onto this one for a while.


  1. Awesome pull! Way to end the 2017 collecting season on a high note! I hope you'll scan up the Beni once it's redeemed. I'm excited to see what it looks like.

  2. Love that Altuve! Pretty sweet auto pull! Congrats!

  3. ...so think about VOTING

    Don't think: do! No matter your political leaning - left, right or center - vote. You can hate the system, you can feel whatever you feel, but trust me there are people out there that feel you don't deserve the right to vote. And are currently finding ways to suppress your voice.

  4. If only I were that lucky to pull something like that from a blaster.

  5. Beni! That's an awesome pull!

  6. Congrats on that sweet Benintendi! Can't wait to see what it looks like.

  7. Ding. Ding. Ding. We have a winner. Congratulations!

  8. That is a great pull, congratulations
