Ruth, Gehrig & Everything in Between - A COMC Blaster
I'm expecting big things from Xander during the 2017 season, which starts on Monday for Boston. After really busting out last year with a .294 / 21 HR / 89 RBI stat line and an OPS over .800 Bogaerts clearly established himself as a legitimate threat at the plate. He's been able to stay healthy since becoming the team's mainstay at short, and has come tantalizingly close to a 200-hit season the past two years (with 196 and 192 hits respectively). Can't wait to see how things pan out here!
By the way, if you're only going to end up with a few NHL hockey cards you could do much worse than this, what a great photo!
last time I did a COMC blaster a couple of weeks ago, and I'm hooked on these inserts. Stan the Man set me back a buck and a quarter, and just like that I'm 20% of the way to completing this 10-card die-cut insert set.
completed the entire set, then grabbed a few of the rarer serial-numbered parallels of Red Sox players as well. There are just 99 copies of this Black Refractor in existence. Rodriguez has a spot in the rotation to start the 2017 season, and I'm not sure anyone truly knows what to expect from him.
That brings the total up to $20.01, so I'll stop there. At a baker's dozen, I might not have gotten the most quantity out of this virtual blaster, but the quality is there for sure. Thanks for stopping by!
