Over the past two seasons, I have really enjoyed watching Richie Shaffer play in Durham and he provided one of my favorite moments of last season when he hit his first MLB home run. I've posted about that before so I won't go through the specifics again, but for those who are curious, you can see part of the aftermath on his 2016 Stadium Club RC. I kept with the 'favorite Durham Bulls' theme for my next pickup.
Mahtook has spent a good bit of time with Tampa over the past two seasons. I'm hoping that he can put it all together and have a breakout 2017 season. I was shutout on the Yankees I bid on, but the last win brings me a great addition to my post-season highlights collection.
I'm not a Royals fan by any stretch, but this is a really cool team picture taken in the midst of their championship celebration. Maybe at some point in the near future I'll have a chance to chase a card like this for the Yankees or the Rays. Anyways, off the topic of the Sapphire Chrome and back to the 'former Durham Bulls' topic.
Taylor is probably my favorite Bulls player over the past two years. I was thrilled that he got the call to the bigs this season. I am actively searching out copies of this card and any or all parallels from Heritage High Numbers. I believe the existing parallels are 'reverse stock', red back, and gum stained. If anyone out there finds any and you're looking to relocate them to a new home, I'm your guy. Thanks for reading.
