I love this Pacific card in the snow.

Wasn't it fun watching all those Eagles fans with their dog masks. If only some other team had thought of that.

I usually buy a baseball pack or two to look at, and see what's new. (Yeah, I know, I can see that on all those other blogs.) I stopped into a Walmart when I picked up my mail at my PO Box in Ogdensburg yesterday, and picked up a value box of 2018 Topps.
Here are the cards from the box that I enjoyed, and the inserts.
The Abreu card was my first Topps card of the year.
I like the Merrifield card, but wish that Topps just showed a little more of the picture - like the whole glove and ball, and the feet.
I also like hat tips and catchers, those photos jumped out at me. I like the bubble that Rupp is blowing.
I think that everyone likes the Hamilton card.
Judge and Stanton. Think we will hear their names paired together much this year? With the League Leader cards, I wish they had put what they led the league in somewhere on the front of the card. This is Stanton's RBI leader card.
All the horizontal cards in my pack were grouped together. I wanted the d'Arnaud card the minute that I saw it posted for the first time, and not just because I am a Mets and a catcher fan. It is just such a cool shot!
Some nice diving cards in the set.
I really like the photo of Rich Hill, but wish that the logo and name didn't block his glove and leg.
On to the inserts:
The Memorial Day insert would be my favorite of these. Could it be because I can actually see game background on the card?
The box said that I would get two Kris Bryant insert cards.
All in all, I prefer this year's set over the last couple, but like a lot of other bloggers, I think that I would prefer that the flagship Topps set have borders.
I'm still working on the Christmas baseball packs that I received. Today we have...
Those bottom two prospects are pretty nice. I had forgotten that Lofton started with the Astros.
I might not have bought a lot of 92 Score when it came out, but I remember that I did own that Frank Thomas Dream Team card.
I think the Lofton is probably my favorite card in the pack.
