2014 topps update blaster - packs 1-5 of the third update purchase

i bought a hanger pack, a value box, and a blaster of 2014 topps update last week. yesterday, i showed what the first two yielded, now it's the blaster's turn.

pack 1:

dustin ackley
doug fister
chris capuano
kurt suzuki
alexei ramirez asg


derek jeter fond farewells
some farewells are fonder than others.

tony gwynn jr target red parallel
dustin ackley target red parallel

pack 2:

tony gwynn jr - hey! he was in the last pack as an insert.
kelly johnson
shin-soo choo
neftali soto
kevin frandsen


aaron crow target red parallel
george springer 1989 mini die-cut
derek dietrich target red parallel
the marlins have some colorful uniforms and a stadium that make for colorful cards.

pack 3:

derek dietrich - again following a pack that featured this player in parallel insert form
aaron crow - ditto
zelous wheeler
andrew heaney
stefen romero


nick castellanos the future is now - i pulled 4 tfin inserts in my 3 different update products, and three of them were of castellanos.  this one is different than the first two though.
logan schafer target red parallel
jesse chavez target red parallel

pack 4:

jesse chavez - right on cue
logan schafer - ditto
edward mujica
nick martinez
albert pujols 500 homers
good to see scioscia on a card, even though he's in the background next to the logo.  the cardinals fan in the first row seems pretty excited, too.


freddie freeman asg red hot foil
be still freddie's heart!

collin mchugh target red parallel
tyler colvin target red parallel

pack 5:

tyler colvin - there's one card i was expecting...
jeff baker - bet you were expecting a collin mchugh card based on the pattern so far, right? that's ok, i'll take this card with hanley ramirez lurking in the background instead of an astro
josh donaldson asg
masahiro tanaka rookie debut


brooks robinson world series hero
brooks hit only .214 in his first world series - 1966 against the dodgers.  he won the mvp in the 1970 fall classic against the reds.

collin cowgill target red parallel
ryan doumit target red parallel
jorge polanco gold parallel
quite a pack.  packs 6-10 are coming a little later...
