2007 Bowman Heritage blaster break: box 2

Filed under: baseball cards — Tags: , — morineko @ 10:30 am

More Excitement! Adventure! and Card Scans! from this box, which I bought a few days after the last one.

Pack 1:
42 Carlos Guillen
98 Dan Haren
96 Hanley Ramirez
BHP68 Ryan Finan
BHP58 Jeremy Jeffress
205 Hector Gimenez
56 Moises Alou
24 Anibal Sanchez

Finally, a prospect I had heard of, although unfortunately it’s for his tastes in illegal recreational substances.

Pack 2:
62 Chris Carpenter
126 Travis Hafner
3 of 5 Mickey Mantle
164 Chris Duncan (rainbow)
BHP60 Joba Chamberlain
BHP78 Brandon Hynick
223 Chase Wright
3 Derrek Lee

How is Chamberlain still a prospect? Sure, he only pitched 21 major-league innings in the regular season but he was on the playoff roster. Anyway.

Pack 3:
134 Troy Glaus
116 Ervin Santana (rainbow)
BHP74 Matt Young
BHP86 Matt Miller
checklist 3 of 3
219 Michael Bourn
238 Glen Perkins
123 Jason Schmidt
151 Orlando Hernandez

Pack 4:
162 Tadahito Iguchi
154 Scott Rolen
SG-JW Signs of Greatness Johnny Whittleman
12 Hank Blalock (rainbow)
BHP30 Gorkys Hernandez
BHP82 Nick van Stratten
91 Ryan Garko
191 Kenji Johjima

Yay, bad handwriting of minor leaguers an autograph card!

Pack 5:
186 Scott Kazmir
22 Sammy Sosa
186 Scott Kazmir (no signature parallel)
20 Miguel Tejada (rainbow)
BHP62 Aaron Cunningham
BHP2 Peter Bourjos
216 Curtis Thigpen
155 Jimmy Rollins

Pulled one of those neat effect backgrounds (the Liberty Bell on the Rollins) and two Scott Kazmir cards. Can’t complain.

Pack 6:
26 Russell Martin
70 Roger Clemens
64 Victor Martinez (rainbow)
BHP14 Derin McMains
BHP42 Michael Martinez
242 Josh Hamilton
23 Carlos Delgado
47 Mark Teixeira

I think enough has been blogged about the picture on that Josh Hamilton card that I really had no need to scan it in again. It’s still hilarious.

Pack 7:
34 Noah Lowry
14 Mike Lowell
PG-JM Pieces of Greatness Joe Mauer
BHP36 Brendan Katin
BHP10 Chris Carter
checklist 1 of 3
231 Jesus Flores
71 Gary Matthews
75 David Ortiz

Wow, they put Red Sox in this set? Just kidding. I am pleased with the Mauer bat card. It’s kind of hard for me not to have heard of Joe Mauer. ;)

pack 8:
22 Michael Young
233 Akinori Iwamura (no signature parallel)
4 Todd Helton (rainbow)
BHP4 Cesar Nicolas
BHP51 Will Venable
227 John Danks
35 Alfonso Soriano
107 Erik Bedard

The regular and parallel cards are almost identical in most cases but on some of the rookie cards, the placement of the Rookie Card logo is changed. This can be seen in a comparison of these Akinori Iwamura cards.

  1. I pulled the two Iwamura cards in the same pack. How wrong is that?

  2. I pulled a Scott Kazmir like that in the same pack, except there was structurally no difference (after all, he’s not a rookie.) The collation gets frustrating, indeed.
