Finishing off the 8x10s (including Nomo!)

I figured I'd finish off the 1997 Pinnacle Zenith 8x10 set tonight.  We have one pack remaining...and with it, the final hope for the Barry Larkin base card that I was hoping we'd pull.  We also haven't found any of the rare 8x10s that are inserted in the set (8x10 Sereis V2 are seeded 1:47 packs and Z Team cards are seeded 1:99 packs).  I don't necessarily expect to get either - but it'd be a nice way to end the break for this box!

Pack 12:
16.  Sammy Sosa - Cubs
24.  Bernie Williams - Yankees
30.  Dave Justice - Indians
49.  Scott Rolen - Phillies
50.  Jose Guillen - Pirates

Good news?  The Guillen and Sosa were both new.  Bad news?  No Larkin - and yet another Rolen (that makes four for the 12 pack box)!  I must say, the collation for the box was atrocious.  We ended up with triplicates of a bunch of the cards...and we completely missed out on getting some of the others (including Larkin).


18 of 24:  Hideo Nomo - Dodgers

6 of 24:  Greg Maddux - Braves

Not a bad way to end the box in terms of the 8x10s.  I'm betting there are quite a few people out there that would like that gigantic Nomo card!

With this box complete, we are done to only two boxes with packs remaining!  This break will end before the week is up...and hopefully packages will be in the mail soon as well!  All I have to do is figure out how to pack up 8x10s!
