A few new awesome cards have been released over the last few days, and I want to go through some of my thoughts. Im pretty excited to see some of the things that are popping up, and these are definitely pretty cool.
SR Mike Trout 4x Fire Boost
Man, this card is a beast. Trout has already become one of the better hitters in the game, but this might be one of the first hitter cards to be able to compete with a pitcher on a game by game basis. 4x scoring is insane, but so is the rarity. You have a hefty price tag to buy the packs that house this card, and the odds for all the other SR is cut in half from 6% to 3%. Topps is counting on the card being awesome to draw you in, and for the most part, it has worked. Im a huge fan of the card itself, but dont have the means in which to get one.
SR Masahiro Tanaka Signature Series
This might be one of the most playable sigs since the release of Justin Verlander, and at 500 copies, its not so rare that you cant pull one. I love the choice, as it will be a crazy valuable sig, and that is always a good thing when you have it in your collection. Funny enough, there has not been any real Tanaka autographs in real packs, so this may be the only “auto” of his for the whole year, haha.
SR George Springer Fan’s Choice Reward Card
There has been no player hotter than George Springer during the last few weeks, and this card could not have come at a better time. All the FC cards were relatively easy to pull during the year, minus one, so this card was a great reward for everyone that collected the set.
Looks like there are some really cool cards on the horizon, check back for more coverage!
