2014 Topps Finest Atlanta Braves

It's been awhile since I've bought any new Braves cards, let alone a whole team set, so you'll have to excuse my excitement over this 2014 Topps Finest set. Being out of the loop a bit I didn't even know that Finest was having a 2014 release. Now that I have these cards in hand I'm loving the wild 90's design. Makes me want to seek out a few of the Refractors now.

#41 Jason Heyward

He hasn't even been gone for a whole month and I already miss him. I'm anxious to see what Markakis can do in right field, but boy does he have some big shoes to fill.

#45 Freedie Freeman

Freedie had another solid year at 1st base and I expect nothing less from him than in 2015.

#52 Christian Bethancourt

Evan Gattis who? Yup, looks like Gattis may be on his way out (to left field?) to make room for Bethancourt to be the everyday catcher. I liked what I saw from him defensively and I hope his offensive game starts to heat up this upcoming season.

#73 Craig Kimbrel

Release the Kraken! Craig continues to amaze me. I think by now people know he is a force to be reckoned with.

#96 Justin Upton

By the time the 2015 season rolls around I'm not sure this guy will even be on the team. I know his strikeouts were up there last season, his bat will be missed if he is traded away. I know you've got to give up something good to get something good. Let's just hope GM John Hart can work out a good deal because I know the other clubs will come knocking this winter.
