Updates first hits

I'm going to show off the box topper and my first pack from Updates and Highlights.

I promised that I wouldn't post every pack, but these first two have some decent hits, so I thought it'd be appropriate.

My boxtopper package was miscut!

That's not a good sign.

I know little about the Rangers. I should. Our Oklahoma City Redhawks are the AAA affiliate of the Rangers, but I'm not sure who Neftali is really.

Here is my first big hit.

A Randy Johnson cyan printing plate.

Cool. My first printing plate and a player I recognize. I'm not a huge fan of Randy's, but he did hit that bird that one time with a pitch so that's cool.

I was a little angry when I saw this card in the pack. I thought the rounded corners were a damaged card.

cool. some nice cards so far. Later I'll post some of the cool base cards I like.

Neftali is a flame throwing mega pitching prospect who the Rangers had working 7th and 8th innings at the end of this season. He is a legit SP prospect. That is a keeper!

GREAT JOB! I am impressed! I am still waiting for my box of that stuff...

I'm drooling over Feliz. If you have any interest in trading it let me know and I'll see what I've got for you.

Spiff said...

You don't know who Neftali is? A scrub prospect to be sure. You could send me the card for my team set. Just to take the space-waster off your hands... (j/k)

Feliz will be awesome if he stays on track. Check out his numbers from 2009.

Wow, I should bone up a little on my baseball. I missed Neftali mania apparently.
Thanks for the heads up Duane and Spiff.

I'm not into prospecting much, so if you want it Brian send me an e-mail and maybe we can work out something.

CT: I really like the updates. I'm thinking that the box I got is a little top heavy with hits. I'm hoping there is more stuff in there. I think you'll be pleased when you get your box.
