Opening an interesting blaster box of 2014 Topps Heritage Baseball

Updated on June 9, 2014

I went out on Sunday to my local Walmart in Eldersburg, Maryland, to get some groceries, because I didn't need that much this week, and while I was there, I looked at the card area, which I normally do. There was only one baseball product there, a blaster box of 2014 Topps Heritage. I didn't really feel like getting it, but I hate going home empty-handed, so I picked it up. Boy, am I glad I did!

I hadn't had too much luck with those boxes, and the last time I got one from Walmart, the one in Westminster where I usually shop, I got a Giancarlo Stanton short-print logo card. Unfortunately, the thing came out of the pack damaged, with good-sized rip on the face of the card, so it was worthless. Not the only damaged card outta there, either. So my experience with Heritage has been sketchy. Until Sunday.

The first pack had this nice Julio Teheran Clubhouse Collection game-used card. So that was a pleasant surprise. My first game-used in about six boxes and other loose packs of Heritage. I figured that was it for getting anything out of the ordinary, and kept opening.

In the third pack, I found this. A black refractor of Matt Harvey, numbered to 65. The current Beckett book on it was $60, but since he's missing the entire 2014 season due to injury, I'll be lucky to get $25 for it. But that was a great pull in and of itself.

In the seventh pack, I pulled this blue-bordered Clayton Kershaw card. The blue borders are Walmart exclusives, in the same way that the red-bordered cards are Target exclusives. A nice addition to the collection, too bad he's had an injury-plagued season.

And as always, here's some Oriole cards to keep, nobody special save for a Jonathan Schoop rookie card, and two cards I didn't have, the Bud Norris and the Wei-Yen Chen.

So, despite Walmart being out of salad lettuce, which irritated the hell outta me, I got some green with this purchase of Topps Heritage. I will keep writing about recent purchases when I open them. Thanks for reading!
