I hit up the card shop today, so I have a few things to post. I broke a box of Topps American Heritage, which was a blast, a couple packs of Philadelphia football, which were decidedly dull and four packs of 2009 Bowman Baseball, which were exactly as I expected. I’m not doing these by pack, just showing off three notable cards from the break.
Let me know if you are looking for any commons, and I can see if I ended up with any of your guys. First up, a WBC card of Cuban star Yulieski Gourriel. If anyone wants this, I’d love to flip it for one of the Canadian cards from this same subset.
Next up is a Gold Parallel of Gift Ngoepe who suited up for South Africa at the World Baseball Classic. Ngoepe plays in the Pirates organization. He’s not a world-beating prospect or anything, but if you like reading about baseball, I would suggest you take a few minutes and head over to SI, and read the story about Ngoepe’s journey to the United States and the Pirates organization. Sounds like a real good kid.
And finally, the ‘hit’ out of the last four packs in the box. A Blake Tekotte autographed refractor, numbered 435/500. Not world beating, but for the circumstances, I am pretty happy with it.
