What's in a half Case (Box 4) (nice hit alert!)

Onwards and upwards! I recently did my first Spartan race. I recommend training for it. Next time I'll actually be prepared. I survived though, hence I can still type up some posts! Hopefully this box provides some fireworks!

A couple of shiny cards. Not sure if I like or dislike having shiny in these sets. It's not an homage to 1968 it's more of an homage to 90s inserts. Which I like 1993 Finest Refractors as much as the next guy but they do that sort of thing in other sets. 

This Benoit is the yellow back variation. There is a 25 print run for each of these. They are hard to tell on stand alone but if you have the cards in a stack the color difference really sticks out. At least its a Phillies player so it goes straight into the PC!

Jose De Leon action variation. I don't know a ton about him just know he was traded from the Dodgers. Hopefully he turns into a nice rotation guy.

Boooooooom! Manny Machado auto numbered out of 68! This was a more then welcome surprise to  hit a Red auto and then hit one of a really good player. Not sure what I'm doing with it yet. It goes for a good amount of money or if I will redeem and wait. I don't love redemption cards in general since I've had both good and bad experiences.

Thanks for reading! More to come!


  1. Spartan race? Very nice, congrats! I've never done a Spartan, but I ran the Warrior dash once and it was fun. I hear the Spartan is the next step up.
    Nice pull on the Machado!

  2. Nice Machado and congratulations on completing the Spartan race.
