I received a surprise package from Dan, a fellow Red Sox fan Monday. Included in the package were a number of cards from my wantlist, always something exciting. Here are the spoils:
2. 2016 Bowman Platinum Top Prospects Anderson Espinoza. Espinoza was Boston's top pitching prospect, but for some reason he was sent to San Diego for Drew Pomeranz, a trade that continues to look worse as Pomeranz is starting the season on the DL.
3. 2016 Bowman Platinum Top Prospects Rafael Devers. Devers will take over as Boston's top prospect in a couple of weeks when Andrew Benintendi graduates from prospect status.
4. 2016 Topps Archives Snapshots David Ortiz. This is my first card from this set. There are a few random Red Sox in it that I am interested in, including a rare Jose Canseco in a Red Sox uniform card.
5. 2016 Topps Spring Fever David Ortiz. Ortiz is once again leading Pedro Martinez for the third-largest player in my Red Sox collection with these three cards.
6. 2016 Topps Chrome Brian Johnson. Johnson will try to make it back to the Majors after pitching just one game in the Majors to date, back in 2015.
7-8. Craig Kimbrel. Unfortunately both of these are duplicates.
Thanks for the cards Dan! I will work on getting something together for you.
