Had the pleasure of opening a 2010 Heritage blaster box Wednesday night; I couldn't pass up the urge to buy one as my wife and I were in Target. Obviously, it was purchased in part to fix my baseball card jones, but I was also hoping that it would provide me with at least a few cards needed for my base set. I'm still undecided as to whether or not I'll try to get all the SPs. There's so many other things I'm trying to pick up, and not enough time nor money.
Here are the goods...
Baltimore Orioles team card
2009 A.L. Wins League Leaders
Then and Now Whitey Ford/Felix Hernandez
-I really like the Then and Now subset; I think it's one of the better ones I've seen over the years.
Zack Greinke- New Age Performers
2009 World Series-Matsui Named MVP
How ironic: as I was opening the blaster, I was watching the Cubs/Braves game, with Ryan Dempster mowing down Brave after Brave...
Check List-4th Series
Albert Pujols-Topps All Stars (SP)
former Brave prospect....
Jarrod Saltalamacchia (say that 5 times fast!)
Max Scherzer (was he born with his eyes like that?!)
-I must admit, this dude's eyes CREEP ME OUT! I guess that's the "shock factor" he must have been going for. Can't say I don't remember doing that kinda stuff when I was younger, just to get a rise outta someone. The thing he's got going on reminds me of Marilyn Manson...
Shane Victorino- Topps All Stars (SP)
A.L. Strikeout League Leaders
Detroit Tigers team card
Cleveland Indians team card
Bronson Arroyo SP
News Flash Backs: Twenty-Third Amendment is Ratified
If it weren't for Strasburg, I bet the residents of D.C. would like to use their right to vote in order to contract the Nationals!
A.L. Batting Average League Leaders (gotta love these! 2 future hall of famers, with a possible third one!)
Nate McLouth- Chrome Refractor #434/561 Yes! That's what I'm talkin' about... A Bravo-who cares if it's only McLouth?
Han-Ram and Longo
Well, after taking an inventory, I got 3 subset cards needed, 1 SP, and 23 cards needed for the base set. Now I've gotta try to pick some up via trade-too much $$ spent on boxes, packs.
