Payday Pack - Short Guy Short Print

I had a tiny amount of money, so I made a brief trip to the local Wally World and wandered over to their diminutive card selection. I picked up a small 12 card pack of Series Two, and was not short-changed. Here are my three favorites from the pack:

3rd Place

2018 Topps #379 Power Up (CL)

Why hasn't this card gotten more love in the blogging community? This card is fantastic! Someone actually thought Jason Werth and Ryan Zimmerman needed the Anthony Rizzo/Kris Bryant bro-mance treatment, and came up with...Zimmwerth? Are you serious? Even better, the card is them yelling! This is the primal scream of baseball on cardboard! I don't know why they're screaming, but I want to join in and scream with them: AAAHHHHHH!!!!

2nd Place

2018 Topps - Salute #S-34 Travis Shaw

You just got to love those throwback Brewers uniforms! The Mayor of Ding Dong City is rocking the Milwaukee pinstripes!

1st Place

2018 Topps #400 Jose Altuve (SP)

A short print of one of baseball's diminutive stars! Not a bad return for a some loose change!

Other Contestants Not Appearing On Stage:
#585 Brandon Crawford
#444 Aaron Altherr
#442 Jesus Aguilar
#629 Max Scherzer
#351 Bryce Harper
#568 J.C. Ramirez
#650 Justin Verlander
#599 Justin Turner
#436 Yu Darvish


  1. That payday pack packed a punch! Nice Altuve pull.


  2. Congratulations! I just said this on someone else's SP post... but I would have never known that was a short print. I wonder how many SP's I've handed out to students or donated to Goodwill over the years.
