Bargain Bonuses: What makes this one a compelling rip? Gary Sanchez at a bargain price and other deep possibilities between the two series. Moya, Yelich, Sano, Buxton and Polanco more are guys who have made a mark or are getting close. There’s depth in these lineups along with a heavy amount of parallels atop a premium feel and a striking look for cards that are player-licensed. They’re also on-card autos here. With an autograph in every pack, this is one that has a bit of fun, a bit of volume and a bit of potential. At a fraction of the original price, this one is one to rip for fun and see what happens. With some parallel luck, you could do pretty well, too. … For Series 1, there were just 175 cases made and all base cards were numbered to 300 copies.
