2018 Stadium Club

I always look forward to the Stadium Club cards mostly due to the great photos they always showcase.  The 2018 Stadium Club didn't disappoint in that regard.  The photographs are great quality and pop off the card.  Seeing retired greats in this format is also a big draw.  My pull had some all-time greats with Hank Aaron, George Brett, and Wade Boggs.  The active players were highlighted by current NL MVP possible Matt Carpenter and prospect Victor Robles.  I'm pretty happy with the cards overall but the team name and player name are very hard to make out.  They are actually easier to read in these scans than in hand.  That is definitely a swing an a miss.  That said, it doesn't take away from the great look of these cards.  I am considering grabbing a hobby box of these at the card show in October.  We'll see how it plays out.  Bottom line is I like these cards and those I pulled.    
I'm so hoping there will be a 2019 Matt Carpenter card of him doing the "Salsa".  The backs of these are fairly nice with plenty of color and the player photo.

  1. This year's SC design isn't my favorite... but I was able to find a few photographs I really enjoyed. That Aaron is one of them.

    1. I definitely agree. The design is a bit lacking but as always there are great photos to be found in this set.

  2. That Aaron photo is fantastic.

    On an unrelated note, I've read some of your pack break posts and thought I'd reach out about possibly making a trade. Drop me an e-mail (sutherlandct if you're interested.
