Commemorative Patch: David Ortiz

Thoughts - 
Boy, it was a lot of fun to open some packs on Christmas Eve! I remember always asking for high end boxes to open every Christmas for a few year span, and while my priorities have since changed (be on the lookout for something soon!), the fun of box busting will never truly disappear. The Ortiz patch card appears to be on the move because it needs to get out of my house, but otherwise if anyone is interested in any specific cards I'll certainly be open to discussing a trade! My favorite pull of the box was either the Jose Abreu mini card or the Masahiro Tanaka Rookie Debut; both of which will remain in my PC. 

On that note, Merry Christmas everyone, have a great rest of your day and I'll talk to you all soon! Thank you to my Nonnie for the fun gift!

See Ya!


  1. I love the patches, but not the Ortiz, sorry! It looks like theres a leaf on the Figueroa card hahaha. I busted some high end boxes for Christmas, but they didn't work out to well for me. By the way, I did pull an Abreu, just not from Dynasty : )

    Hope your having a fantastic Christmas!

    1. Darn, I was so close! And yeah, I was taken back when I first saw that Figueroa card too hahaha. Merry Christmas man!

  2. Good stuff! Always fun to open packs/boxes at Christmas!
