2 Blasters of 2009 A Piece of History (7 packs/5 cards)
1 Blaster 2009 Goudey (8 packs/8 cards)
5 9-card Retail Packs 2009 Goudey
2 5-card Retail Packs 2009 Goudey
10 Retail Packs of 2009 Goodwin Champions
We should see two guaranteed hits from the APOH blasters, and anything else is just gravy.
The 2 APOH blasters yielded 46 veteran/rookies
and 15 history cards
There was 1 UD 20th Anniversary insert
There were two red parallels
|a red Red and a Verlander for my PC|
The two inserts were pretty nice:
|Both #/999. The Johnson commemorates his perfect game. The Phillies card is a rare 3-person card where the players are all still with the same team.|
The D'backs insert means every team has at least 1 insert and 1 parallel, now.
Of course, you really just want to know what the big hits are:
Both of these cards honor homeruns by Sox-es, one white and one...er...Red. The Konerko is especially sweet with the pinstripe.
Moving on to the Goudey...and 100 base cards:
There were a few nice inserts in there:
The Ozzie and Pedroia are awesome. The weird political card...not so much.
There were also half-a-dozen 4-in-1 cards:
That's one each for the Twins, Red Sox Yankees, and Indians, with two leftover to be randomed between the teams represented.
Two mini parallels fell out of the packs:
Very nice for the D'backs and Giants.
The same 5-card pack (that ironically only had 3 cards) that gave the Lincecum also yielded a big bonus:
Even Hanley is saying there should have been 5 cards in that pack. But, Hanley, you must subtract your jersey number...thus leaving 3 cards. Duh. Sweet bonus hit for the Marlins.
Now for the 2009 Goodwin Champions packs.
18 base cards were baseball, 5 were not. As expected, there were some UD 20th Anniversary inserts, all sports-related this time:
The big draw of Goodwin is the one mini in each pack:
The Abe and Matt Ryan (yuck) will be randomed. One pack also had a black mini:
The Goodwin packs also had a surprise in store:
I don't know anything about her, but that is a badass card. A retail on-card auto like that is awesome. This card will be randomed between all teams without a hit, once the break comes to an end.
BONUS TIME!!! I picked up a discounted 2008 Masterpieces blaster this weekend to add to the fun.
