A Friday Four Pack

We are down to the final eight packs of the 2012 Topps Archives box for the group break.  After I finish off the Archives box, we'll move on to the 2013 Topps Series 2 box.

Archives - Pack 17:
41.  Corey Hart - Brewers
44.  Cal Ripken Jr. - Orioles
84. Nyjer Morgan - Brewers
108.  Cliff Lee - Phillies
136.  David Ortiz - Red Sox
159.  David Price - Rays
190.  Josh Hamilton - Rangers
67S-MR.  Sticker:  Mariano Rivera

The floating head stickers are sort of creepy, don't you think?  Nothing like a guy's mug staring back at you - I wonder if any kids ended up sticking one of these to his or her notebook?  Of course, back in my day stickers like this would end up on a Trapper Keeper.

Pack 18:
47.  Drew Pomeranz - Rockies
53.  Adam Wainwright - Cardinals
94.  Anibal Sanchez - Marlins
141.  J.P. Arencibia - Blue Jays
145.  Howie Kendrick - Angels
154.  Starlin Castro - Cubs
192.  Brad Peacock - Athletics
530.  Dave Winfield - Padres - Reprint

*sigh*  I'm running out of time to find the one remaining reprint card that I need for my own set...things aren't looking good now.

Pack 19:
8.  Matt Moore - Rays
37.  Jose Valverde - Tigers
87.  Clay Buchholz - Red Sox
98.  Johan Santana - Mets
139.  Ivan Nova - Yankees
148.  R.A. Dickey - Mets
195.  Brandon Morrow - Blue Jays
77C-MS.  Cloth Sticker:  Giancarlo Stanton - Marlins

Are there any Marlins collectors out there?  If there are, I'd love to work out some sort of trade.

Pack 20:
19.  Brandon Beachy - Braves
28.  Melky Cabrera - Giants
65.  Jordan Zimmerman - Nationals
78.  Miguel Montero - Diamondbacks
105.  Torii Hunter - Angels
151.  Stephen Strasburg - Nationals
187.  Nolan Ryan - Astros
239.  Von Hayes - Phillies

Congrats to Deal for landing the nice Von Hayes short print - love the '87 Topps design (have I mentioned that before?!).

And with that, there are only four packs remaining in the Archives box.  We should still have one more autograph though, so stay tuned!
