late nite pack rip of 2018 Heritage
Grabbed a couple packs of 2018 Heritage at the grocery store this afternoon while out shopping with the fam (Probably would have gotten a blaster, but all they had was an open retail box). It's my first 2018-stuff rip. My grocery store (Fred Meyer) recently did a little remodel and now the card section is right by the Customer Service desk, which I gotta assume is good for keeping pack-searching pricks at bay since there's a worker at the desk at all times.
A couple guys I collect here in Conforto and Devers.
Pulled the Beltran sunset card, plus a Beatles insert and Yankees rookie stars.
More base cards.. available for trade.
And a "hit" of sorts with this Josh Donaldson /999 chrome parallel. He's a guy I collect, so I'm happy with this. Maybe not exactly justifying the $6 purchase price of 2 packs, but hey, a Donaldson parallel plus Devers, Conforto, and a bit of trade fodder.. I'll call the rip a modest success.
Some backs. I used to be a bigger fan of '69 Topps a few years ago until I took a closer look and got turned off by all the outdated & hatless photos. But the simple design is fine and I like the backs. But I probably won't buy much more of this. Maybe if there are discounted blasters at the next card show I'll grab one.
Thanks for reading!
