2018 Edition - Topps Yankees Project
Big sigh of relief.
I’ve gotten one TTM success back from 2018 MLB Spring Training. But, it was an important one. Former Yankee and current Marlin Garrett Cooper signed this for me:
Notice anything? Yep, that’s a signed 2018 Topps Yankees card. Which means…
I HAVE AN ENTRY FOR 2018 FOR MY TOPPS YANKEES PROJECT.
I’m really happy to have this. I reserve the right to swap it out if a different success comes in that I prefer to use, but for now, I am thrilled to check off 2018 for my project. I was a little nervous when I saw the Yankees checklist for Series One, but Cooper came through for me.
I really hope he gets a shot at significant playing time with Marlins. I liked him in his short Yankees stint. The Yankees actually traded him for international bonus pool money when they were still in the hunt for Ohtani. That was before the Yankees were notified that they were an East Coast team.
Cooper hit .326 for the Yanks in 45 plate appearances. Obviously Justin Bour is the starter at 1B in Miami, but hopefully Cooper can make the roster and get his share of ABs. Easy guy to root for.
