Breaking a 2018 Stadium Club Blaster

In my fruitless search for 2020 Bowman, I’m up to five trips covering six unique stores (four Targets, two Wal-Marts), and still nothing. The closest I’ve come was a glimpse one empty Gravity Box. Otherwise, no sign.

So I settled for this blaster of 2018 Stadium Club. I figured I earned something for all the trouble.
Eight packs. Five cards per pack. Stunning photography. You know the deal.

Let’s get to rippin’…
Pack One: Robinson Cano, John Smoltz, Chris Sale, Jackie Bradley Jr. (Red), Jackie Robinson

That was quite the theme pack there to start. Jackie Robinson, Cano and Bradley Jr.
Pack Two: J.P. Crawford (R), Chris Taylor, Rafael Devers (R) (Never Compromise insert), Jake Derom, Jake Lamb

Pack Three: Erick Fedde (R), Cam Gallagher (R), Corey Kluber, Manny Machado (Power Zone insert), Justin Bour
Pack Four: Hank Aaron, Clint Frazier (R), Jose Altuve, Tzu-Wei Lin, Joey Votto

If I never pull another Lin card in my life, that’d be fine.
Pack Five: Alex Wood, Didi Gregorious, Dillon Peters (R), Andrew McCutchen (Chrome), Justin Verlander
Pack Six: Mariano Rivera, Amed Rosario (R), Dominc Smith (R), Max Scherzer (Special Forces insert), Keon Broxton

Pack Seven: Victor Caratini (R), Dwight Gooden, Freddie Freeman, Keury Mella (R), Lucas Sims (R)
Pack Eight: Barry Larkin, Christian Villanueva (R), Luis Severino, Trey Mancini (sepia), Adam Jones

I don’t know if that qualifies as “last pack mojo,” but I’ll take it.

And the search for 2020 Bowman continues…
