Breakin Wax DOUBLE HEADER: 2014 Topps Heritage Minors + 2015 Topps Debut 2-Pack Each Breaks

To kick off vacay Breakin Wax week, I thought I would show off my first minor league break ever. I am not one to usually buy these types of products, but with my Kris Bryant chase leading me there (I still only have one card), I said why not?

The first thing I busted was 2 hobby packs of 2014 Topps Heritage Minor League. I have always been a fan of Heritage, so I figured it would be a great place to start.

In every pack of 2014 Topps Heritage Minors, you get 9 cards and having bought at a card shop I got them for $3 each. I believe boxes contained 4 hits so I was hoping I had a good chance at something.....

Then my usual reality sat in.....these were the best of the best cards I got

This guy is a beast. Was happy for this one.

Road To The Show of Bubba. My lone insert pull but in two packs can't go wrong.

Next up, is 2015 Topps Pro Debut. Once again the hope for some minor league stars was on! I am also a fan of the 2015 Topps design for baseball so knowing this product had it, I didn't have a problem trying it. I actually did a lot better with these.

Once again, it's another two pack break.
In every pack of 2015 Topps Pro Debut, you get 8 cards and having bought at a card shop I got them for $3 each. The hobby box was mostly untouched and each box comes with a decent amount of hits so I felt good about my chances.

But, once again, no hits were found. At least this time I pulled some decent base card players.

Overall, nothing big but it did help stock up my prospect collection a little in my first attempts at opening up minor league product. Sometimes you just never know which of these guys will pass or fail. Even the big names don't always prove themselves and sometimes the little guys do. Kinda why I don't put a lot of stock in one player collections too often and get a variety of players.

What are your thoughts on Minor League cards?

  1. I love the Heritage look because I love the original '65 design. That Pro Debut is very nice nicer than the major league 2015. The plain border gray/silver border is much better than the MLB color team design. I think that border thing is the biggest beef I have with the 2015 MLB this Minor League version looks cleaner and nicer even though it is supposed to be the same thing. Dang Topps.
