While wandering through Shop-Ko this morning I noticed they had a sale on all $2o blasters for $15. They also had the first blasters of Masterpieces I’ve seen in town. I’ve liked what I’ve seen so far of them and I really wanted the Ryno card. I decided to double down and buy two blasters. Here are some of the highlights of what I got. The art on these cards for the most part is incredible. I love how they show shots of specific accomplishments and iconic moments in baseball history. I was happy to pull the Mauer GU card, I think this guy should get more credit than what he has gotten. I guess that is what you get for playing in Minnesota. I also pulled the Ryno card I was looking for, everything after that was icing on the cake.
This is another one of my favorites from the set. I’m not a big fan of the Tigers or Verlander but I have a small collection of no-hit cards from years past. The view of the scoreboard in this card is awesome. I like how it shows the lineup of the Brewers and tells the story with out spelling it out on the front of the card. It is the nicest card highlighting a no-hitter that I’ve ever seen. The only questionable card I came across was this one.
Here’s what it would look like if he was traded to the Yankees.
Overall I think this one of the best sets out there. I plan on building a set so if any one has extras I’ll post a want list soon. I think these will look great in a binder!
