First Box (Drum Roll)
My two autographed cards came from Braves outfield prospect Robby Hefflinger and Cardinals corner infielder Patrick Wisdom. Both players have some big power potential. Hefflinger and Wisdom are both currently in AA. A little bit of a slow start for both, but hopefully they can pick up the pace as the season goes along.
My first "memorabilia" hit out of my box was a more traditional hit. This patch piece from Reds prospect Michael Lorenzen is a pretty nice piece, but it seems to be a rarity in this product. Most of the hits I have seen coming out of this product seem to fit more closely with the other three memorabilia cards I pulled out of my boxes.
On a side note I was a little bit sad to also see my Durham Bulls get shut out of the logo patch set for the first time in several years. I guess maybe they were short on player candidates this year. Although a Taylor Motter card with a Bulls patch would be sweet. Just a thought.
Yep, it's Robby Hefflinger again. He is easily the MVP of my Pro Debut boxes. This is a gold parallel autograph which is numbered out of just 50 copies. My other autograph is Mike Papi from the Indians A ball team. Papi is hitting below .200 for his minor league career which is disappointing for a former first round pick. However, I got to see him play in college for Virigina and can tell you he was a pretty good college player. Definitely a fun person to watch and he played on some good teams with other good players.
Derek Hill was a first round draft pick of the Tigers last year and this is another logo pennant card. It's hard to say for sure, but it seems like almost everyone I have seen open a box of Pro Debut has pulled one of these cards. I am guessing they are one per box. Which brings us to one of the most bizarre/unique cards I have ever pulled out of a box.
