Salt in the Wound

Topps just can't let me get over the World Series. I was busting the first of my three blasters when I came across this Cards card.

Like many of you, I was watching Game 3 of the World Series when Albert Pujols hit his three homeruns. I have to say it was pretty sickening.

The second blaster picked up my spirits a little when I pulled this Derek Holland card.

Cheesy mustache aside, Holland pitched a masterpiece in Game 4. Hopefully he gave the Rangers a look at the future since he just signed a new 5 year deal. The Rangers got a pretty good deal I think. I'm going to try to get this one signed because Holland is a great signer.

The third blaster gave up these cards in back to back packs.

Game 5 hero Mike Napoli celebrates his two run double on this card. It gave the Rangers a 3-2 victory and I was almost certain I was only a few days from celebrating the first World Series Championship.

The very next pack ripped my heart out again as I read "Deep Freese Makes Texas Toast".

Thanks Topps. I really needed a kick in the balls today and you came through like the exclusive provider of licensed MLB trading cards we all know and love.


  1. I can't bring myself to buy more heritage because of this series. Too painful.

  2. At least the Dutch Oven's cheesy 'stache always makes me smile!

  3. I have very little use for 2011 and 2013 Heritage because of all the Giant celebrating. Ick.
