2014 topps update blaster - packs 6-10 of the third update purchase i made last week

i showed packs 1-5 of the 2014 topps update blaster earlier today.  typically, each pack contained a couple of target red parallels, and then the next pack contained those same cards in their base format.

the pattern pretty much continued for the remainder of the blaster.

pack 6:

collin cowgill
collin mchugh - ryan doumit was the second target red parallel in pack 5, but the anticipated mchugh base card was missing from that same pack, so now there is a one-pack delay.  we'll see if doumit shows up in the next pack.
marcus stroman
robinson chirinos
derek norris asg


albert pujols power players
adam eaton target red parallel
brock holt target red parallel

pack 7:

adam eaton
ryan doumit - yup, there it is.  new pattern established.
jason hammel
drew pomeranz
anthony rizzo asg


george springer the future is now
i went to an astros game shortly after springer was called up, and he looked pretty bad at the plate.  all signs point to him being a big deal, however.

boone logan target red parallel
santiago casilla target red parallel

pack 8:

brock holt
kendrys morales - pattern broken
jason bartlett - he played in 3 games for the twins this year but gets a card in update.  i don't mind this, except for the fact that i really wanted a jamey wright card and surely the dodger spot starter/long reliever warrants a spot over a guy who didn't appear in a game after the first week or two of the season!
hunter pence asg
pat neshek asg


paul goldschmidt asg red hot foil
yoervis medina target red parallel
steve tolleson target red parallel
parallel insert double play goodness!

pack 9:

santiago casilla
boone logan - maybe this should have been pack 8
justin masterson
paul goldschmidt asg
freddie freeman asg


omar vizquel fond farewells
bobby abreu target red parallel
back for the first time since 2012 topps update

josh harrison target red parallel

pack 10:

yoervis medina
eduardo nunez
jackie bradley jr
greg holland asg
steve tolleson
base double play goodness!


pedro ciriaco target red parallel
joba chamberlain target red parallel
bryce harper 1989 mini die-cut
so that's it for the packs.  here's the one-per-blaster manufactured patch:

rollie fingers 1974 world series mvp
so, for the record, i found zero dodgers in the blaster, but received a card of the mvp of a world series in which the dodgers lost.  nice.
