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!
