I am interrupting the scheduled 964 posts. No, this is not a national emergency. I just wanted to give you folks a break from the 964 as there are several more of those to come.
I did something that I really haven't done before. I had been browsing Ebay for the complete Topps Update set since before it was released. Way to pricey for the set. I decided to buy 2 Hobby boxes direct from Topps. I figured at least this way I had a chance at some decent inserts and a chance at a couple of autos.
I managed to pull all of the Braves but two. (I bought them elsewhere and I have them). The scan of those cards is at the end of this post.
Here are the PC guy inserts from the 2 boxes.
You get 1 black gold per box.
Silver pack keepers.
Future PC guys. I will have to clean out those boxes of these guys in the coming year. sounds like a hobby/blog goal for next year. We'll see who makes the cut.
Each hobby box offered up a relic card. I didn't get any autos. The Hayes was a good pull.
When I grabbed the two missing Braves to complete my team set I also grabbed these inserts (Card Barrel). My 2021 Topps Braves are complete and so is my 2021 Topps and Update sets. They are in the binder. I must say that Topps continued their screwed up flip flopped card backs.
The scan below should wrap up all I have to say about 2021 Update.
I was going to do an entire post regarding the scan above. The title would have been Once Upon A Time. You see the cards above represent former mini collections.
Celebratory pitcher/catcher, throwback uniforms (I kind of still have some of those), getting dirty, Cameos (I do still have those), giving Glory, and fist bumps/pumps. I must have had dozens of mini collections. Trying to find any reason to keep a card that I would have otherwise thrown into the dupes boxes. I remember back in 2015 that I parted ways with many of those mini collections. I reduced it down to the ones I still collect and enjoy. Even then I still have so many mini collections I may have to part ways again with a few. I did a contest the last time. I figure I'll "look" at them next year. I'll have to decide whterh to put them in a binder or part ways..... we'll see.
I'll get back to the 964 cards Thursday tureky day.
