The Stars Come Out on a Wednesday Morning.

I'll have reaction to last night's Reds/Pirates game in due time.  I can't tell you how I feel about it right now because this post is being written well before that game was actually played.  That's the wonder of Blogger scheduling friends...and it allows me to get a bit ahead (finally) on my group break pack rips!  Here's a few more out of the Dominion box.

Pack 20:
Jeff Zimmerman - Rangers
Shawn Green - Dodgers
D. Reicher & M. Quinn - Royals
Erubiel Durazo - Diamondbacks
Jaret Wright - Indians
Travis Lee - Diamondbacks
Mike Hampton - Astros
Mike Sirotka - White Sox
Tom Gordon - Red Sox
7 of 20 NE.  New Era:  Carlos Beltran - Royals

I didn't notice this before (and you can't really tell from the scan), but the background of the New Era cards changes depending on the team.  Boston has the harbor, Chicago has the lake, Pittsburgh has the river, and Kansas City gets...well...buildings.  Not quite as nice as the other cities' backdrops but a nice touch for the insert design that I had missed up until now.

Pack 21:
Alex Fernandez - Marlins
John Franco - Mets
J. Jones & M. Redman - Twins
Jeff Kent - Giants
Chris Russell - Royals
Brian Bohanon - Rockies
P. Martinez (Red Sox) & R. Johnson (Diamondbacks)
Chris Carpenter - Blue Jays

David Cone - Yankees
9 of 15 EO.  Eye on October:  Nomar Garciaparra - Red Sox

A nice insert for Boston.  The Eye on October cards are seeded 1:24 packs.  We beat the odds a bit because this is our second such insert card in the box (each box has 36 packs so you'd expect every other box to have two Eye on October cards).

Pack 22:
Barry Bonds - Giants
Michael Barrett - Expos
Kip Wells - White Sox
A.J. Burnett & A. Garcia - Marlins
Shawn Estes - Giants
Mike Piazza - Mets

Scott Karl - Brewers
Jeff Weaver - Tigers
Steve Finley - Diamondbacks
5 of 10 DP.  Double Play:  Cal Ripken Jr (Orioles) & Derek Jeter (Yankees)

Since both Baltimore and New York were claimed, this nice little insert will be randomed off at the end of the break.  The Double Play cards are seeded 1:9 packs - and I'm guessing this is one of the best pairings in that set (without doing any research)!
