I'm only posting the first one here. If you want to see the second, you will have to check out my personal blog, I Feel Like A Collector Again.
Nothing too special in pack one. I will keep the Bud Black card just because if I have a baseball team, it's the Indians.
I am excited that the Bobby Bonilla Rediscover card was in this pack. My blogging and podcast partner Jason collects Bonilla and I doubt that he has this one.
On a side note, I offer my opinion on the Rediscover program. I know many hate it, but I actually like it. For collectors of retired players (especially non-stars), this adds something new to search for and add to player collections. For me, I'd love to some into a Russ Davis, Steve Kline, Darrell Whitmore or Chris Enochs Rediscover card. It's not likely that any of these guys will be showing up on any new cards.
What I don't like about the program is the inclusion into anything other than flagship. My personal opinion is that's where they should come from, not that Topps cares what I think.
I can't lie, I thought that my mini card was some sort or blank front error or short print card. I looked up the checklists and "surprises," only to find nothing. Upon closer examination I discovered that the "Constellations" cards look like this. Nothing to see here.
These are the gold bordered minis from the pack. I love these special parallels that Topps adds to some of their retail product. Well done, Topps!
