I was out and about with the family, picking up some storage bins for the attic and I happened upon a blaster of 2012 Topps Update.
Update is one of my favorite products of the year, right up there with Bowman Draft and Panini EEE.
Grandal was a mid season call up and had a very nice run. He hit .297 with 8 homers and 36 RBIs in just 60 games. Pretty f-ing good if you ask me.
The little bonus patch in the blasters are Blockbuster cards. A subset I have mixed feelings on.
I like the concept a lot. A set of big time trades and signings is cool. The issue I have is I am not a fan of the design. It’s too blah. I think it’s the color choice.
I just realized the Seaver card says “hat logo”. If it was a hat logo shouldn’t the colors be flipped? Just a thought.
My blaster wet my appetite so a hobby box is in my future.
