Duel Blaster Wars: 2008 Topps Stadium Club - Pack 3

Continuing the 2008 Topps Stadium Club Blaster Wars, it's time to crack open pack #3. Let's see who wins!

Pack 3

Blaster 1:
46. Fausto Carmona
103. Nick Adenhart (+10 points for Adenhart. I thought the Angels' tribute to him throughout the season was a great gesture...and I'm sure his family appreciated it - I firmly believe the best way to honor someone who passed away is to remember the good times and positives - the Angels seemed to embody that philosophy the entire season, even going so far as to include Adenhart's jersey in the celebratory champagne spraying)

127. Blake DeWitt
148. Chris Perez
33. Brandon Webb - First Day Issue
Checklist
Total: 10 points

Blaster 2:
5. Russ Martin (+3 for the awesome photo - the best part of the '08 Stadium Club is the photos. Quick question, when did Russell Martin start going by Russ?)

28. Ryan Church
35. Ken Griffey Jr. (+2 points for being Griffey Jr)
67. Joe Mauer (+1 for looking like he just rolled out of bed, put a helmet on, and started stretching on the field)

121B. Matt Tolbert - First Day Issue (+10 points, needed it!)

Checklist
Total: 16 points

Standings so far:
Blaster 1:
36 points
Blaster 2: 32 points
Total cards knocked off my want list: 3


Three packs and Blaster 2 managed to double their score thanks to a couple of great photos and a card I needed. Can Blaster 1 hold onto the lead or has the fat lady begun to warm up her vocal cords? Only one way to find out. Stay tuned! As always, any card that I didn't list as "needed" are available for trade...check out my want list and make an offer!
