Cubbie Currency

Just a quickie today.  Several weeks ago I bought a blaster of Update to get a sampling of the stuff before I put a hobby box on my list to Santa.

Of course, you get one of these "coin" cards in each box.  I don't get super-excited about these normally, but I knew there were a couple Mets on the checklist.  Thus, I had the remote chance of getting a card that would be a valued addition to my collection.

As you can see, I didn't get a Met, but I was pretty happy to land the Kris Bryant card.  It's pretty funny, because as I was ripping open the wrapper, I was saying to myself, "I never get anyone decent with these things."  I guess I can't say that anymore.

I'm not necessarily enamored with Bryant, but it's always nice to get a rookie year card (even a faux-relic, yes) of a guy whose ceiling is unlimited.  I'll probably get  nice snap-tite or screw-down or magnetic case for this.  Sure, why not?

Have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving weekend, everyone!



  1. Nice! Maybe some of my Kris Bryant mojo slipped into that last PWE I sent you ;-)

  2. Nice pull! Happy Thanksgiving, Mark!
