Headliners Set 15 Signature Series Carlos Santana has replaced Postseason Mickey Mantle in Headliners packs today. Signature Series Carlos Santana is a 95 overall.
Longtime fans of The Show probably have some amount of love for Carlos Santana. At times, he’s been that offense-first catcher option for stretches of time, and I expect the same to be true with this card. He does not have overwhelming numbers from either side of the dish, but he comes with limited downsides and 90 vision to go with 125 discipline. I think the big thing to note is he’s not a complete tire fire at catcher, and he still maintains 1B eligibility if needed. With 52 speed, he’s not even that slow for a catcher, so again, I think this is just a very cromulent card.
Beyond that, Santana plays above his ratings for me (and many others) because he’s got a great swing and stance going by the crowdsourced comments from others. So if you put all that together, you have a solid Headliners player. Finally, he is a Signature Series player, and since those are very rare right now, that’s an added bonus if you need him to complete the Mariano Rivera collection.

The odds on the Headliners packs remain the same as always, so good luck if you try getting him in packs as you’ll have a 1:10 chance at a diamond, albeit that diamond might not be Signature Series Carlos Santana.
