What made it worse is that I had both Walker and Jackson cards in my COMC account so it was a painful reminder when I got my order in December. At least Walker made it to the Mariners where he went a “meh” 22-22 with a 4.18 ERA. Jackson toiled away in the minors not breaking the A level and even though he was a Top 20 prospect for the Mariners he was still years away from making the parent team.
So here is what I got that are just going to be packed away with my ex-Mariners collection, luckily they did not cost too much:
2014 Bowman Sterling Japan-Fractor Taijuan Walker
A couple of early Alex Jackson cards2013 Leaf Showcase Metal Perfect Game Stars
2014 Bowman Draft Picks Asia Black Exclusive
2015 Bowman Draft Asia Exclusive” Black Wave, Red & Black and Black Refractor
Will I continue to chase Mariners’ prospects? Most likely
Will I get burned again? Yes of course
