I'm teaching two sections of Calculus I this semester - and today is exam #2 for both sections. While my students may be gnashing their teeth, I'll be opening up packs and having a good 'ol time*.
*This pack was opened prior to me giving the exam. Don't worry. I wouldn't bring cards to work!
With only two packs left in the Pinnacle Zenith box, it'll be easy to knock out 50% of the remaining packs.
23. Tino Martinez - Yankees
We've pulled three Tino cards so far.
24. Bernie Williams - Yankees
We've pulled three Williams cards so far.
28. Mark McGwire - Athletics
We've pulled three McGwire cards so far.
38. Jay Buhner - Mariners
We've pulled FIVE Buhner cards so far.
49. Scott Rolen - Phillies
We've pulled three Rolen cards so far.
Yes, not only was pack 11 all duplicates - all five cards were actually triplicates (plus an extra two Buhners). What pathetic collation - and we still haven't found the Barry Larkin card in the set (the one card I really, really wanted)!
Now the 8x10s:
5 of 24. Mike Piazza - Dodgers
8 of 24. Dufex: Albert Belle - White Sox
At least neither of those were duplicates - congrats to the Dodgers and White Sox on landing a nice gigantic card!
I'll bite on the 30-Day Baseball Card Challenge
