2013 Panini Hometown Heroes: Jason Varitek

I am ashamed to realize that this is the first post dedicated solely to a Jason Varitek card. I have been at this a few months now, and I should have posted about this card long ago.

I was very excited to open a box of 2013 Panini Hometown Heroes, especially when I looked at the checklist and saw Varitek’s name listed.  Since his retirement, he has been excluded from most sets, so it was great that he was included in this set.

#157, Jason Varitek

This is the State parallel.  These fall five to a box, and I was lucky enough to get one of “Tek.”  This is a great card.  Varitek is in full catcher’s gear, which makes the absence of the Red Sox logo minimal.  The banner along the bottom of the card is fantastic, as it almost looks like a red sock.  I still need the Zip code parallel to round out the “rainbow.”
