2017 PENNANT BOX BREAK - PACK 18

266. Neil Walker


200. Brett Gardner

47. Ian Desmond

100. Billy Hamilton

125. Miguel Cabrera

102. Cameron Maybin

73. Joe Mauer

233. Corey Kluber

176. Wade Davis

TI24S. Kevin Quackenbush - The Incumbents (shimmer parallel)


The obvious card to discuss here is the Kevin Quackenbush insert. It’s basically the Pennant version of a Topps Chrome Refractor. It’s hard to show the difference between “chrome” and regular stock with just digital cards like this, but I figured the rainbow gif thing would do the trick.

2017 PENNANT BOX BREAK - PACK 17

171. Ian Kinsler

234. Leonys Martin


62. Carlos Beltran


110. Brad Hand

95. Salvador Perez

161. Tyler Glasnow (RC)

81. Michael Saunders

92. Rick Porcello

298. Hanley Ramirez

FF7A. Jake Lamb - Future Favorites Autograph


Here’s the fourth and final hit of the box. A Jake Lamb auto is probably the third best hit behind the Odor/Joey Bats dual auto and Miguel Cabrera Dream Team auto. He has enough potential for it to be a better hit down the road. Still seven packs left. Hopefully they’re exciting enough to make up for their hitlessness.

212. Steven Matz

11. Edwin Encarnacion


160. Christian Friedrich

178. Alex Colome

82. David Price

292. Francisco Lindor

223. Aaron Judge RC

203. Ryon Healy RC

34. Robinson Chirinos

TI14. Clayton Kershaw - The Incumbents


A bit of a rebound from the last pack. The Judge RC is probably the best pull though the Kershaw insert is pretty nice, too. Lots of red and blue in these cards.

TB15R. Kolten Wong - Throwback Relic



I always like doing the Throwbacks relic cards with the throwback jerseys. They’re a little more unique than regular old relic cards using the odd colors like powder blue here.
