Random Wax: 2019 Topps Stadium Club Baseball

The All-Star Game is today so why not look at a pack of 2019 Topps Stadium Club baseball.  There were three duplicates in this pack from the blaster I opened over the weekend but I'm still very happy.  This Kershaw card is pretty cool though I'm thinking Dodger fans aren't exactly thrilled with it having a Cardinals' staple in the clydesdales behind him.    
Glad I pulled this Jackie Robinson card.  I'd seen it in promo material and it is a cool photo.
Ronald Acuna Jr. cards are always fun to pull.  Not a bad insert but the photo is a bit lacking.  Not my favorite Reggie Jackson photo either but I still won't complain.  Did I just ding Stadium Club on their photos not once but twice?  Not something you'll see from me often.

You know what you'll get from this set and it is nice photography.  This pack didn't disappoint.  Some nice cards, great photos and good mix of current and retired greats. 

BREAKDOWN:
12 – Total Cards
3 – Retired Greats
1 – Sepia Parallel
1 – Beam Team

  1. Starting to think this set would be pretty awesome to get signed... right across the top of their names. That Goldschmidt is a great play at the plate action shot.

  2. Stadium Club has great photography. I just wish the price was a bit lower.

    1. I can't argue with you. At least the card stock at least helps give it a higher end feel.

  3. The Reggie Jackson might not be as eye-catching as Clayton and the Clydesdales, or Bryant & Bellinger. But at least they're not recycling the same old photos of his corkscrew swing.

    1. I did think of that. Nothing worse than seeing the same photo over and over. Good point.
