Pack four seemed to be the Lincecum pack, featuring two cards with his picture on it. And then, at the end of the pack, I found this:
I was a little worried that the scan wouldn't show the "shiny" - but now that I look at it, I think it comes out okay. And as for the shiny being Mark Reynolds? Kinda disappointing... If you are a close follower of this blog (and who isn't, really?!?) you may remember that Mark Reynolds was the first card I saw when I opened Topps 2012 Series One.... Perhaps this is my Year of Reynolds.
While I was kinda depressed that THIS GUY was going to be my first shiny, I opened the next pack to find this:
I don't know if this one scans as good as it looks - but this is a different kind of shiny, I believe it is the refractor kind, and it is numbered out of x/563 (the Reynolds was x/1963). Now THIS is the kinda player that I like to have a cool version of!
And now I can open some more packs!
