2014 Topps Allen & Ginter's Hobby Box #1: Say Hey! Another Hit Shows Up!

A box of 2014 Topps Allen & Ginter's contains 24 packs.  I'm now about to rip open packs 17 and 18 which means I'm about to hit the three-quarter mark of the box.  With only one hit so far, it would seem likely that I should get a second hit real soon!

Pack 17:
2.  Don Mattingly
7.  Hector Santiago
45.  Nomar Garciaparra
136.  Carlos Gonzalez
Pastime's Pastimes:  Lou Brock

According to the card back, Brock is a businessman who has ran a flower shop and a Dodger dealership.
Black border mini:  79.  Matt Adams

This is turning into a Cardinals-centric pack.
FSR-JH.  Relic:  Jason Heyward

My second hit of the box is a full sized Heyward relic.  I think this is a much better card than my first hit (the Ian Desmond relic) at least!  

Pack 18:
16.  Bartolo Colon
46.  John L. Sullivan
117.  Yu Darvish
124.  Jonathan Schoop
248.  Mark Teixeira
309.  Hunter Pence
Natural Wonder:  17.  Luray Caverns

Reg. mini:  84.  Francisco Liriano

Not a bad pair of packs.  The Heyward relic is quite nice (it will probably either serve as trade bait or eBay fodder though for me).  I also like getting the Natural Wonder cards - and now I'm one card closer to completing my set!
