Talk about a dream week for a Twins fan – just a ton of cards to collect and chase, and quite a bit of great looking cards added to the app. Although I didnt get my Twins sig, I still had a blast chasing down all the cards.
SR Joey Bautista Signature Series
The reasoning behind the Jays getting another sig is that he was the top vote-getter for the ASG, which makes sense. The card looks great with the All Star logo, and I am so sad that Mauer didnt make it to the game to have a card like this made for him. Bats will be a coveted sig, regardless as 350 copies will be a big deal.
SR Mike Trout ASG MVP (Pack Version)
Really cool card to have inserted into packs, and though this was Jeter’s night, Trout really played better. I still have a feeling we are going to get another Jeter card, but it likely wont come until this afternoon. The chase version for all 78 all star cards has to be less than 50 copies, so that will be bigger.
SCR Yoenis Cespedes HR Derby Champion (Pack Version)
Cool pic for this card, and quite the chase from what I have seen people offering for it. There are 750 copies of it, but I know that a lot of people want it for their collection. Cespedes put on a show for the second time in two years, and came away champ over some tough competition.
TBT Harmon Killebrew All Star Card
This was one of my favorite cards from the week, only because Killer was one of the best ambassadors for the game in the history of baseball. Had the chance to meet him a few times, and not only did he have the best autograph, but his personality matched it. Great guy.
SR Joe Mauer Fan Fest Chase Card
Best Card Ever Strong
Big fan of the Fan Fest set, and to have Mauer as the chase put me on a mad dash to track down the set. Great looking design to match the real life versions, but bittersweet as his position change basically took him out of the all star game running. It will be on lockdown regardless for me.
