2007 Bowman Heritage blaster break: box 6

Filed under: baseball cards — morineko @ 11:16 am

This is the final box opening of this set. Thanks for reading a list of cards with the nonsense I post about them for the past week or so.

1)
13 Chien-Ming Wang
193 Chase Utley
PG-TN Pieces of Greatness Trot Nixon
BHP86 Matt Miller
BHP30 Gorkys Hernandez
204 Sean Henn
128 Willy Taveras
180 Alex Rios

I don’t associate Trot Nixon with greatness as much as I associate him with a tradition of Red Sox outfielders with somewhat silly nicknames. Dewey, Trot, and Coco…one of these things is not like the other thing.

2)
169 Cole Hamels
57 Cliff Lee
245 Travis Buck (no sig)
235 Alex Gordon (rainbow)
BHP78 Brandon Hynick
BHP74 Matt Young
247 Brandon Morrow
52 J.J. Hardy

3)
109 Curt Schilling
89 Conor Jackson
SG-SP Signs of Greatness Steven Pearce
211 Tony Abreu (rainbow)
BHP58 Jeremy Jeffress
BHP60 Joba Chamberlain
108 Rafael Furcal
4 Todd Helton

Curt Schilling, Bowman Heritage 2007 set
I was opening this box in front of my mother. She has joined the legions of my coworkers who keep asking me if I’ve pulled any Schilling cards yet. I swear I was about to start calling him Joe Shlabotnik (I’ve now reserved that for Craig Counsell, because he’s more of a Shlabotnik player type and I can’t pull his cards either.) So, I showed her the contents of the pack. Mom’s comments: “He looks fat and old.”
Me: “Because he is?”
Ah, the problems with early-season pictures. He looks much better now. Or I’m just still happy about the World Series and it’s making my vision fuzzy.

65 Dontrelle Willis
227 John Danks (no sig)
213 Gustavo Molina (rainbow)
BHP40 J.R. Towles
BHP68 Ryan Finan

149 Freddy Sanchez
251 Joba Chamberlain
240 Philip Hughes (rainbow)
BHP90 Gabriel Sanchez
BHP76 Chris Salamida
76 Stephen Drew
172 Aubrey Huff

I don’t have anything coherent to say about all these Joba Chamberlain cards, so here’s a picture of Phil Hughes with a Yankee cap on his head:

Even a pancake couldn’t improve it (but a bunny might.)

  2. If you’re keeping track of this, I’ll email you after I get back from Boston on the 19th–I’m definitely interested in a trade (especially as you appear to be more interested in Trot Nixon than I am) but I’ve got no time to package anything in the next day or two. I haven’t forgotten.
