Why not rip a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee baseball while I watch this horrific Patriots/Jets game. I knew I should have stuck with Bruins/Canadiens...
6 cards per pack, here's the first...
Awesome card, my favorite photo in the pack right out of the gate. I love the two fans in the front striking a "thriller pose".
The portrait shots are less impressive to me than the in-game action, but as portraits go the ones in this set are at least well done.
My one-per-pack black parallel, snooze...
I never liked the strange background that appears on Steve Pearce's card. There are a number of cards in the set against this same backdrop, and to me, it just looks like the curtain to a meat locker or industrial freezer.
Orlando would be dealt to the Minnesota Twins during the 2009 season.
This pack leads off with a nice late-career card of a guy with 422 career saves.
I opened these a couple weeks back, and I've already shipped this one out to Tony at Off Hiatus Baseball Cards
Rather than being irritated that I lost one of my 6 cards in the pack to this giant, self-promoting insert set, I actually kind of like this card. I mean, who doesn't like DiMaggio, and what an awkward photograph.
DiMaggio, Jeter, Verlander and A.J Burnett...that pack certainly finished off with some horsepower!
That's all for tonight...
Wish I would have chosen to watch the Pats/Jets over the B's/Habs.
