Group Break: 2015 Topps Heritage High Numbers: Packs 7 - 9

This is the third group break post of the day - what more could you ask for on the day that the World Series is going to begin?  Well, I guess you could ask for the Reds to be in the World Series but then you'd be called a crazy person.

No one wants that.

What people do want is cards.  So let's rip some more packs of the 2015 Topps Heritage High Number box.

Pack 7:

Jordy Mercer - Pirates
Carlos Correa - Astros
Brandon Morrow - Padres
Jacob Lindgren - Yankees
Nathan Eovaldi - Yankees
Pat Venditte - Athletics
Austin Adams - Indians
Sergio Romo - Giants
705.  Yasmany Tomas - Diamondbacks (SP)

Our second short print of the box.  The High Numbers set only has 25 short prints which is good for set collectors I guess.  Of course, the ratio of base to short prints still means you'll get about three full base sets before you complete your short print set.

Pack 8:

Desmond Jennings - Rays
Everth Cabrera - Orioles
Tommy Pham - Cardinals
Colby Rasmus - Astros
Travis Snider - Orioles
Kyle Blanks - Rangers
Robinson Chirinos - Rangers
Chrsitian Walker - Orioles
Chrome parallel:  704.  Ben Zobrist - Athletics #131/999

The Athletics get on the board with a nice chrome parallel card numbered out of 999.  The chrome cards are seeded 1:17 packs so we do have an outside shot at getting a second chrome card in the box.
Pack 9:

John Jaso - Rays
Taylor Featherston - Angels
Yasmani Grandal - Dodgers
Orlando Calixte - Royals
David Ross - Cubs
Kelly Johnson - Braves
Dan Uggla - Nationals
Evan Scribner - Athletics
Award Winners:  AW-5.  Jose Abreu - White Sox

The Award Winners are seeded 1:8 packs - so congrats to JediJeff for that Abreu.  I have a feeling he'll be happy with that one!

Nine packs down - and with 9 cards per pack that is no small feat for a single day!  Now go enjoy the World Series...the next group break post probably won't happen until tomorrow.

One more thing:  Some people might be wondering who is currently in the running for the 2015 Topps Allen & Ginter complete set.  Remember that the worst team slot gets the set...so being really bad is still good in this break!

Our current leaders for the set?  The Mariners (2 cards total) and the Brewers (also 2 cards but one was a parallel).  Thus, our current "leader" is Junior Junkie with his Mariners.  Of course, there are a ton of group break packs yet to open so anything can happen!
