Happy 1-2-12 day! It's time for another couple of packs - including one of the best packs in the box!

97. Don Mattingly

Three retired legends in that pack - a nice pack to be sure...but it is no where near as nice as the next pack...
23. Barry Larkin
This is the one card that I was hoping to get in the set! A brand new Larkin card for my collection. I must say, if anyone has another one of these though I'd love to trade for it so that I can have one card in my Larkin binder and the other in the Retro set binder (once I put these cards in a binder)!

S25. Old School/New School: Scott Rolen #0347/1000
This is the Version 1 type card and is sequentially numbered to 1000 (can you find the numbering on the card...it's a bit tricky). The front of the card has a rather jarring amount of foil (considering that's the only card thus far with any type of foil on it in the box). I don't think I fully understand why these are called Old School/New School cards when the fronts have only "new school" on them. It's a bit weird to say the least - but hey, you can't complain about pulling a serially numbered card (even if it is out of 1000) from a box of cards from 1999!
