Random Wax: 2019 Topps Update Baseball

2019 Topps Update:  This was a fun pack.  I love the photo on this Ronald Acuna Jr. card.  I like the All-Star Game cards already but this card is so cool.  Ball, bat, and bubble gum.  
I also pulled three other Braves.  Wow what a pack.  Love it.  Keuchel and Donaldson each had a very short time in Atlanta but were a big part of their 2019 97 win season.  I really wanted to see Josh Donaldson be resigned by the Braves but it wasn't meant to be.  During the All-Star game Freddie Freeman was mic'd up and it was great fun.
  Another nice photo for that Michael Chavis card.  Really happy to pull that Gwynn as well.  I like the Perennial All-Stars design.
I can't believe Yasiel Puig hasn't found a home yet.  I get he is injury prone and can be a head case sometimes but he hit .263 or .267 with 23 to 28 homers the last three seasons.  Seems like someone would want him in their outfield.
The Greatest Seasons/Moments/Players are pretty cool inserts.  This was really fun pack.  I enjoy the All-Star Game cards and all those Braves is a big win.

  1. blowing a bubble while taking a swing, great! I wish Donaldson could've stayed too.

  2. Cool Gwynn insert. Not a fan of all the cheesy inserts that Topps produces... but at least it gives me one more Gwynn card to chase down.

  3. I like that particular insert set but I get it...Topps doesn't always hit the mark.
