More 2017 Topps Heritage cards

I ended up at Meijer this morning to pick up some milk. As you may know, I can’t go there without checking the card aisle. Nothing new but they still had 2017 Topps Heritage high numbers so I bought 2 packs. I also picked up some 2017 Donruss football and 2017-18 Upper Deck MVP hockey packs for my wife.

I wasn’t real impressed with the outcome of the last Topps Heritage packs, but figured you have to keep trying to get something better. Out of 2 packs, I landed 1 Cubs player with an Ian Happ RC.

Then I found a Dansby Swanson Rookie Performers card.

Cody Bellinger Now and Then card.

Carlos Correa & George Springer Houston Hammers card

Then there is a Bruce Maxwell RC in mini format. I flipped it over and noticed it has a serial number of 064/100. Not too shabby!

All cards except the Ian Happ are available for sale or trade. Send me an email or a DM on Twitter (@cubsfanstan) if you are interested.

Late night Meijer run

After my wife and I enjoyed a nice evening out, we decided to hit Meijer for some milk. We poked our heads in the baseball card aisle and noticed they had some Topps Chrome packs. They were rather pricey at $10.99 for 17 cards, but I decided to get a pack. You get 3 packs containing 4 cards plus a 5 pack of pink refractors. We also got a few Topps Series 2 – 36 count packs, but they didn’t impress me enough to take any pics.

I seem to be on a Cody Bellinger hot streak as I found one of his rookie cards in the Topps Chrome. Also got a Yoan Moncada RC and Alex Bregman 1987 card. The Miguel Cabrera card is a negative which is kind of cool. The Bryce Harper is a pink refractor.

Only a few Cubs in this with Addison Russell, Jason Heyward Refractor and Jose Quintana (now a Cub).

I like the Topps Chrome cards. They feel a little thicker to me and the cards really pop. I just wish they weren’t so darned expensive!

P.S. Yes, we did manage to pick up some milk while we were there. 🙂

More Bowman Platinum hits

Stopped by Meijer late last night for groceries and picked up 5 packs of 2017 Bowman Platinum.

The first pack I opened only had 7 cards (supposed to have 12) but the Aaron Judge RC made up for it. Also picked up a Cody Bellinger RC as well as a Lucius Fox Top Prospects Purple #200/250.

As for the Cubs, I found 5 different cards in the packs. Contreras, Schwarber, Rizzo, Arrieta and Oscar de la Cruz Blue Ice top prospects.
