Group Break: 2015 Topps Heritage High Numbers: Packs 16 - 18 (World Series Fever!)

I'm writing this post the day before the World Series begins...but I can assure you that these packs will have a definite World Series feel to it.  Prepare for some Mets and Royals!

Pack 16:

Steven Matz - Mets
Sean Rodriguez - Pirates
Vincent Velasquez - Astros
John Ryan Murphy - Yankees
Brad Boxberger - Rays
Eddie Butler - Rockies
Paulo Orlando - Royals
Jed Lowrie - Astros
Award Winners:  AW-6.  Jacob deGrom - Mets

The Award Winners are seeded a standard 1:8 packs like most of the other "regular" inserts in the set.  I think this was a pretty darn good pack for Keith as he landed a Mets base plus the Award Winner insert.

Pack 17:

Corey Hart - Pirates
Joey Gallo - Rangers
Mike Fiers - Brewers
Collin Cowgill - Angels
Garrett Jones - Yankees
Rafael Betancourt - Rockies
Brett Cecil - Blue Jays
Jeurys Familia - Mets
Now and Then:  NT-10.  Ryan Zimmerman - Nationals

I think it took me half the box before I realized that the insert set is called "Now and Then" this time around rather than the usual "Then and Now" for Heritage.  I guess that's why the format changed!

Pack 18:

Norichika Aoki - Giants
Jordan Schafer - Twins
Jason Grilli - Braves
Justin Masterson - Red Sox
Yunel Escobar - Nationals
Justin Bour - Marlins
Aaron Harang - Phillies
Williams Perez - Braves
Rookie Performers:  RP-12.  Noah Syndergaard - Mets

Yep, two of the three packs had a Mets' insert in 'em!  Is that a sign that the Mets are going to dominate this year...or is it a way to appease the Mets' fans given the Royals dominance?  I have no idea since the World Series won't begin until tomorrow (from when I'm typing this).  Either way, it should be fun...especially since there are no Cardinals or Giants in the World Series for the first time in what feels like forever!
