Some Rookie cards! (Rhys Hoskins!)

I have yet to open any 2018 Topps Series 1. Not sure I will this year but that's ok. I have no plans to complete the set or anything like that. I was able to grab some of cards of none other then Rhys Hoskins! He's the new power potential on the team and hopefully he lives up to it. I've listened to several radio interviews and he seems to have a good head on his shoulders. With the pitching staff I don't think anyone is expecting great things from the Phillies but maybe the lineup can hit a little bit with Hoskins, Santana, Kingery, Crawford, Odubel and Altherr. Lineup at least has potential!

Here is the base card (dealer was kind enough to throw it in after we made a deal for the other 2 cards)

A nice action shot

This is the Short Print variation photo that fall about 1 per box or so (from what I've been told)

This card really pops! It's super shiny in the light and numbered out of 50. I actually paid under ebay from the in person dealer and considering I was too lazy to look it up when I was standing there I'm pretty proud I judged the current market correctly. Even if Hoskins isn't great (knock on wood) this card is very visually appealing.

Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for more cool stuff!
