Million Dollar Question – As The 2014 Collecting Year Begins, What Are You Most Looking Forward To?
This question is open enough to bring out a wide array of replies, and I look forward to seeing the things that people bring up as they offer up a reply.
For me, there is a lot to look forward to as the 2014 collecting year begins.
But, there is also one thing that stands out quite a bit more than anything else.
The Miami Marlins
Yep, my Marlins. I am very eager to see how they are treated this year, especially by Topps. The team now has two superstars – Giancarlo Stanton and Jose Fernandez. And with a few more household names on the roster like Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Rafael Furcal on the roster, I am hopeful that we get more than 3-card and 4-card team sets from products like Gypsy Queen, Allen & Ginter, and Tribute. The Marlins are stocked up young players, and many are capable of becoming major contributors to the team’s success and I will think that it will be interesting to see if and when Topps latches on to it. Players like Nate Eovaldi, Steve Cisek, Marcel Ozuna, Christian Yelich, Adeiny Hechavaria, Henderson Alvarez, and Garrett Jones should all be decent options for Topps to throw into some sets this year.
Time, and checklists, will tell. And I cannot wait!
How about you? What are you most looking forward to seeing out of the 2014 collecting year??
