B ased on yesterday’s reveals, TA3 is for the 2nd tier of franchise greats. They’re (mostly) the type of guys who are obvious candidates for their team’s HoF but are not necessarily the all-time greats in the history of MLB.
That leads me to believe the Uber-legends (Ted, Cal, Babe, Frank, Griffey, Rickey, etc) will get SS cards in TA4. But! I can’t ignore the George Brett outlier. He’s easily the best player in Royals history without any argument. So... what could we possibly get in TA4 that will top Brett? I kinda doubt TA4 will be Finest cards. I think those packs sold really well last year, so I don’t see them giving those cards away for free. Maybe TA4 would be flashbacks? Greinke and Salvador Perez already have their high diamonds, so I guess it would be a flashback Gordon. But wouldn’t that be a disappointing step back from TA3?
And where are the rest of the legends going to be? Sig Series packs? Headliners? Even if we get a 10th inning, there are only 15 more boss slots. I am sure we could all name 30 or more guys who will probably end up with 99s.
I have no impactful conclusion to this post, so just think about your two favorite animals and imagine them going at it. I’m picturing a hippo and a pug and oohhhh man.
