The First White Sox Card Of 2017 Is...

OK. Settle down. I know I haven't been posting on here as much as I or you would like. I apologize for that. Between a management position at my job and a new house to customize, it's been difficult to find the time to devote to one of my favorite hobbies (and blogs), but I did open some cards a few days after the Topps flagship release, so here are the first results.

Lou Ferrigno? 

Well, that was unexpected! As luck would have it, a few cards further would produce the first 2017 White Sox PLAYER card...








 


Jose Quintana!


Eventually, I would get the entire base set of White Sox and most of the insert sets, but interestingly enough, no parallels of White Sox yet. While the flagship set is still somewhat new, there is still time to fill in the rest of the gaps with the inserts and parallels. The one thing that I have found a bit frustrating with this release is the parallel cards. They don't stand out at all. I actually passed up a parallel or two because I didn't recognize it right away.

Happy collecting, everyone!

Felt a little bad for Ricky but the results speak for themselves. I hope he has a better shot on the South Side. I like him.
