Today we've got more from my holiday haul.
A hobby box of 2016 Topps Five Star Baseball. Only 2 cards per pack, both autos.
A pretty nice Jim Rice auto. The only auto I previously had of him is a logoless stickergraph, so this is definitely an upgrade.
The other card in the pack is Omar Vizquel. Another good-looking card. It's my first auto of his. I'm a little surprised at the lack of HOF support he's been getting so far on this, his first year on the ballot, but he'll probably get in eventually.
So that box was decent, with a couple HOF-caliber guys, though I'm a little bummed both were unnumbered base autos.
Let's keep on crackin'...
2017 Topps Tier One. Three cards in this one.
Sweet. Carlos Correa is a guy I collect.
Steven Matz is a solid young pitcher for the Mets who had some injury issues this past season. Kinda cool, though it's a sticker and plain grey swatch.
Finally, here's a Javier Baez auto #'d 3/10. Not bad! A few days ago I showed off a similar one of these, a Christmas Card of Tyler Austin. Love the silver ink.
That's it for today. Thanks for reading.
