Yeah you probably clicked because of the contest. Let's get that out of the way first. I'm not entering this contest, not because its not a cool prize, but because I just bought some boxes and don't need any.

Enticing enough? I thought so.
So let's get to today's post. It's not long, but it is three scans. So let's take a look.
Two more packs, yeah, I eat too much pizza. Good news is the top cards were all ones I didn't have, and one on the bottom I didn't have either. I'm edging closer to get half done. My friend got a pack the other day and he's not too interested in them, so were are working on a trade, which will net me three more I don't have. Maybe I can finish this set this year. Thank goodness I'm not chasing the New Era cards.
I used a coupon from the pizza packs to get a jumbo pack of series one cards. Here's what I got. A silver MLB Debut of Nolan Ryan, which is only the second Silver version I've pulled. I might try to work on the set, but probably mix and match the silver and bronze cards to finish the set. Other inserts include a rainbow parallel of Chris Heston, a Wrigley insert of Kris Bryant, and a Perspectives of Yadi (which isn't too bad since his name doesn't really overshadow the rest of the card like some of the others. As for base, I needed the David Freese and I think the Jay Bruce. The Escobar was a double but will go into my Royals collection, so its all good.
Other base cards I got were... um, these. Most of these were ones I didn't have yet. I got about 10 or 12 new base cards so it was actually a pretty good pack. I hope to finish the set at some point, but with series two coming out soon, I'm not sure how much closer I can get.
So that wraps it up for today, not the longest post, but I've been preoccupied a bit tonight with stuff on TV and other non-important stuff, so might as well end it now. Thanks for reading and have a great night.
