Good Friday afternoon to you all, hope that you are ready for the long weekend and New Years!!
Finally got around to sorting the hobby box of 2009 OPC baseball that my wife bought me for Christmas. This post contains the first half of the box, and I will post the second half for everyone tomorrow.
I'll keep the same format as yesterday, make it easier on those who may read this on Sunday morning a little (or a lot) hungover.
First, the inserts:
WK8. Walk off Winners Jed Lowrie
AR8. All rookie team Kosuke Fukudome
FF24. Face of the franchise Jay Bruce
HM12. Highlights and Milestones Kelly Shoppach
1248. Retrospective card Joe Torre
1243. Retrospective card Carlos Beltran
1238. Retrospective card Hong Kong International Airport
Next, the black parallels:
114. Gerald Laird
136. Matt Lindstrom
158. Steve Pearce
162. Cha Seung Baek
174. Omar Vizquel
237. Reggie Willits
239. Mike Lowell
287. Gregg Zaun
Black parallels part 2:
315. Andre Ethier
326. Andy Laroche
365. Jacoby Ellsbury
386. Paul Maholm
389. John Danks
426. Justin Verlander
504. Astros Checklist
561. Travis Snider
568. Jason Motte
And...finally....something to "brag" about
Not the biggest household name in baseball, but still an autograph none the less. There may be a Cubbies fan out there wanting to trade for it.
As far as the base set goes, the first half of the box fared quite well for me. I pulled 37 more base cards towards the set, which now stands at 466/600 or 77.67% complete.
All the cards listed in this post are for trade, so if you see something you need, post a comment or send me an email.
Thanks for reading, Robert
