Donruss 2017 Blaster and Some PC Additions

I picked up a blaster from Wal-Mart and had some pretty good luck.  I pulled 3 Cubs base cards, got a relic and two very solid serial numbered cards.

Kyle Schwarber, Kyle Hendricks & Jon Lester
The Pete Rose nickname variation is a fun little card.  Albert Pujols is numbered 16/49.

My hit from the blaster is a jersey relic of Brian Ellington.  I'll throw this onto the trade page.

My favorite card from the box is a gold press proof of Jose Altuve.  It is also the nickname variation numbered 65/99.  I have started a PC of Jose Altuve lately, so this card will fit in nicely.

Lastly, here are a couple of eBay pickups.  A Trevor Story auto from 2017 Gypsy Queen and Daryl Strawberry triple bat relic auto from 2016 Panini Pantheon.  

The Pujols and Ellington are up for trade.  I'd also consider trading Trevor Story for the right card.  Thanks for stopping by!

Donruss 2017 Divisional Break

Donruss 2017 released and I picked up a couple of spots in an online random divisional box break.  I got the AL Central and AL East.  I was fortunate enough to get a hit from the box and a few nice looking inserts.  I didn't realize it at the time, but the site I went through only ships rookies, inserts and hits.  If I would have seen that on the site beforehand I wouldn't have bought it from there.

The first few cards that I got were a Andrew Benintendi Rated Rookie, Keston Hiura 191/349, and a Chris Sale Dominators insert.

I also got a variation of Frank Thomas with a pink back.

For the auto I hit a red Jose Abreu auto 86/99.

Later in the same week I was shopping on eBay and decided to pull the trigger on a Ryne Sandberg auto with the retro border.  This is actually my first Ryne Sandberg auto in card form.  I've had a signed 8x10 photo for a long time, but I definitely want to pick up some of his card autos.

Donruss 2017 has a nice border design and while there is no MLB team license, these cards are a good bang for their buck.
