Mail Day, A Mistake At Target and A Contest

First up, mail... two packages in today... one from eBay, one from a blogger... first, ebay:
Another GQ auto in the book... this makes 26 out of the 48-ish on the un-official checklist... slowly going to get there... then pray someone accidentally ships me a Koufax, Aaron and Ripken... 

Next up, Adam from My Cardboard Mistress. We had been trying to hammer out a deal for a long time... and finally he pulled something I could use!!!!
How about the elusive 2013 Astros hit????? I stalked a few of these online before Adam pulled this beauty! He also sent along a bunch of Astros and a bunch of Texans... great stuff Adam, you're awesome.

Ok, so this next part I'm a bit ashamed of... I had sworn off Heritage after the checklist showed absolutely no Astros outside of the base cards... and the planned Astros/Colt .45's SP set was scrapped because Topps was too freakin CHEAP! Seriously, they apparently didn't have enough of our money to get the job done. Geesh... well, in the series 1 blasters there was a coupon book and being thrifty, I figured why the hell not... and now I think, Why the hell did I do that??? Here's the inserts from my box:
David Price is Chrome refractor /564. Most exciting card in the box for me... I did pick up 3 of the Astros from the base set: Dominguez, Lyles and Lowrie (yea, the guy is now with the A's, awesome). Anyways, here's the deal... I picked up 3 of the short prints (one of them is a red border and is a SP number). It's contest time...

You get one guess per day, I will reply to your comment if you get 1 or 2 correct but I will not say which one you got correct, if you don't guess any correct, I won't leave a comment.. guess which three players' SP cards I got. The first commenter to put the pieces together and get all three will win the entire stack of cards from my blaster and 2 gravity feed packs that I bought (87 cards total). If no one guesses them all by next Friday, then I'll just keep these cards and use them as trade filler... have fun!
