Last week I bought a hanger box of Heritage from Target. You know, that cardboard thing that houses a cellophane-wrapped brick of 35 or so cards? Well one of the cards I yanked out of the pack was this Stand-Up insert of Kris Bryant. Pretty cool, and a pretty good pull, I must say.
I apparently had some Bryant mojo going on that day because I also bought a hanger pack of 2016 Opening Day and pulled the youngster's base card.
Between the Opening Day logo and the Rookie Cup and the "Future Stars," this is a pretty busy card. I'm of the mind that you should either be an All-Star Rookie or a Future Star. Never both. That's just me.
Don't get the wrong idea. I'm not going soft on the Cubs or anything like that. It's just that I can appreciate cards of a young superstar, regardless of what team he suits up for.
