Random Wax: 2019 Topps Baseball

This is my first pack of the 2019 Topps baseball flagship since I opened a hobby box in February.  Again I enjoy this design and like what I've seen from the inserts.  This pack was a fun one highlighted by two Ronald Acuna cards.  
Topps does photos well and these two are no exception.  While we don't know for sure, in my mined this was the end of a great play by Javier Baez.  I also like when they get the ball in the frame on pitcher's cards.  
I like when they catch lighthearted moments from the games like this one.  Who knows the context but it is something I enjoy.
Some nice emotion from Blake Parker.  Another Brave in Tyler Flowers and you have to like Miles Mikolas' hair but Topps didn't a do a good job showcasing it in this photo.
Another good photo - just wish I knew the story behind it.  Still fun though.  I'm sure this won't be my last of this set so expect more throughout the season.

  1. The Godley action shot is my favorite in the pack.

    1. They got him at a good time after the pitch and having the ball in the shot is a nice bonus.

  2. I think I got that exact pack earlier this year, minus the Acuna highlight card and the Rizzo/Perez. Baez is my early favorite for card of the year, and I also really like the Godley photo.

  3. I keep coming back to the Baez card as well. It is in the running for me as well.
