My wife and I hit the grocery store (Meijer) early this morning to beat the rush. We stopped in the toy section to check out the cards. I picked up a 2016 Topps Update and a 2017 Topps Series 1 hanger pack.
The Topps Update pack came through as I snagged both a Kyle Schwarber and Albert Almora RC!
Landed a Nomar Mazara RC along with a few other nifty cards.
I came across this Cody Reed RC but it looked different to me. I had to do some digging to discover that this is a gold card.
On the back I noticed it had a serial # on it. 0121/2016 That’s pretty cool that there are only 2016 cards made of this particular gold card.
The 2017 Topps Series 1 didn’t disappoint either. Aaron Judge, Andrew Benintendi and Alex Bregman RCs were found.
Kris Bryant, Jake Arrieta, Kyle Schwarber and Jason Heyward rounded out my Cubs from this pack.
I really like these retail hanger packs. Sure it’d be nice to buy a hobby box but that’s out of my price range right now.
