I hit up the card shop today, and snagged four packs of 2009 Topps Heritage Baseball. This product is pretty much what you expect year after year. I didn’t hit anything huge, but I did OK. The cards look nice, and there is also some really funky gum in each pack.
Even though the gum is sealed in plastic, I find the cards still carry a very distinct gum odour. I have a mini stack of base, so if you are looking for someone specific, drop me a note. I only hit one SP, which was one of those cool floating head cards featuring the Detroit Tigers coaches (461). If anyone needs it, and has a Hamilton SP to spare, I know someone who would be very interested in it. Cough…me….cough. I also hit a Stephen Drew New Age Performers insert.
Of course, I didn’t bother scanning either one of those cards. I’m sure most of you know what they look like by now. My ‘hits’ out of the four packs were a Chrome (Chipper Jones) and a Chrome Refractor (Johan Santana). I can’t complain about that. Well, OK – minor quibble. Last year, I bought about the same number of loose Heritage packs, and I hit a Josh Hamilton Chrome. That was pretty awesome. But Chipper and Johan are cool, too. They are also both available, if need be.
