2014 Topps Baseball blaster

Sport:  Baseball
Product:  2014 Topps Baseball blaster
Break Date:  February 1, 2014
Hit Breakdown:  One manufactured relic
Summary:  I opened a blaster of 2014 Topps baseball earlier the same day I broke the jumbo box. I figured, may as well go for the set. Little did I know I'd basically complete it in one jumbo, but...

The blaster itself was pretty decent. There was a mini Bryce Harper, a few nice PC Cardinals cards, and a slew of red Target parallels.

But, the main hit of the box was the Manufactured Relic that each blaster comes with – in this case, a Rookie Reprint of Don Mattingly. The relics are certainly neat looking cards, and would probably make a cool set to build.

Across the board, this was a decent blaster.
