Two big inserts were released today, including the card celebrating the recent history made by Albert Pujols. Here is my take on it.
SR 500 HR Commemorative Card – Albert Pujols
I really think this is a cool card, and I bought a couple of bundles trying to pull one. I failed, of course, but I am going to try to chase down a copy once they are a bit more available. Since you don’t need to buy the 7th inning stretch packs to get one, this is a really available card that comes with a 500 coin reward. Odds are 1-500 +insert packs.
Signature Series – Ryan Braun 350 level SR
I was a bit shocked to see Braun get a sig amid the controversy, but it wont affect the collectability likely. The card is a 350 copy sig, which puts it above Verlander and below Andrew McCutchen in terms of rarity. I think that once all 30 are released, this should end up being on the rarer side. Its worth it to pick up soon before it goes sold out.
There are a lot of inserts scheduled for this week based on what we have been seeing over the last few days, so don’t fret if you hit a dry spell in your packs. There will be lots to chase.
