2021 Topps Series 1 Blaster!

Remember when I wrote about bumping into the card vendor? And, remember when I said I almost didn't buy anything because I had already ordered a few blasters online? Well, today I share the results of one of those blasters! Pretty exciting, right?

Let's get to it!

Yup. They are what I said they are.

The first Red Sox base card of 2021! Not a bad way to start at all. After going last box only getting inserts, this one makes up for it. Definitely expecting bigs things from Dalbec this season.

Boy are these die cuts annoying when trying to flip through a stack of cards. It's like the specifically designed the "7" to catch on all the other cards in the stack.

Another card of a Red Sox young star. This three year vet is actually a year younger than Dalbec. Sometimes I have to remind myself of that.

With any luck, he'll return as the ace of the staff and a Cy Young candidate. The horizontal format of the card actually works well with the design. I actually think the stripes are less intrusive...even though they're right there in the middle of the card.

A Red Sox parallel! Of, a former Red Sox! Ouch.

I'd have to say this box turned out a little better than the first one. Hopefully that upward trend continues!

How did your box go?
