|The crown jewel of Seattle baseball: Safeco Field|
I work relatively close to Safeco Field and more importantly, the team store. So during my lunch break one sunny day, I headed down to the Mariners team store to buy the 2016 team set. I'm not a big fan of this year's Topps design. The colors on the cards are too muted and the white smoke overlay on the corners of the pictures seems unnecessary. But for $7 I'm pleased, especially since I would only want to buy packs from the main set for the Mariners cards. I was also happy to get a Ketel Marte rookie card since he has been playing well this year.

While I was at the team store they were selling some other cards on discount and I managed to pick up a pack of 2015 Topps Series 2 for only $1.50. That is a steal! I got a couple nice pulls such as a Andrew McCutchen, Jose Altuve, and a parallel rainbow foil LA Dodgers card.
