The rookie continues to impress. He hasn’t come in and become a HR machine for the Mets but he has consistently gotten on base either via a walk, a hit or any other method. He is killing lefties right now as he is batting .667 against them. That’s something the Mets definitely needed! Defensively, he’s played in 59 innings so far…and no errors! I bet you I just jinxed

Not a good second game for the rook. He did manage to draw a walk but maybe Carlos Zambrano intimidated the kid a bit? Lets see how he bounces back tonight vs Carlos Silva who has been pitching well since coming to the Cubs!

2009 Topps Heritage Rip- Because Patience Is Not A Virtue Here!

2009 Topps Heritage Rip- Because Patience Is Not AVirtue Here!

Ok…so I got the word from distributor on Friday that I would not get my cases of 2009 Heritage til Monday. My initial response would be “I spent all that money with you and I have to wait a weekend to rip while the rest of the world is ripping?”. But with the way Topps is printing cards this year…I guess I was kind of lucky just to be able to get cases of this stuff. I am hearing it is hard to find. So I calmly took a breath and said “Ok…we’ll wait til Monday then.”
Since my wife was glad that she would not have to deal with ripping this weekend we decided to go shopping at the Palisade Mall. And of course, I get lured in by the sports collectibles store and again, of course, they have 2009 Topps Heritage! And as it says in the title…because patience is not a virtue, I had to buy a few packs despite the fact that I have cases coming tomorrow!!
Worth a mention…this guy wanted $90 for the box. Now I had never been to this store so I wasn’t going to argue with the guy but at $90/box…that’s over $1000 a case!!! I now go back to my pone call with my distributor and say to myself…I’m just glad I got in on some cases of this stuff!
Here are the 5 pack rips!
