Do You Pull Cards of One Team More than Most Other Teams?

"I just hope you have as much luck pulling Tigers as I have a knack for pulling Reds."
-Pat (Hot Corner Cards)

This isn't the first time that someone has left me a comment similar to Pat's in a trade envelope.  It does, however, beg the question:

Is there a certain team (or maybe multiple teams) that you seem to an unusual number of cards from?

For me, that answer certainly seems to be yes - but luckily, my "way too much" team is one that is incredibly easy to trade away:  the Dodgers.

For Pat, the answer to my question is apparently the Reds - which is good for me as a Reds' collector!  Pat recently sent me a small PWE with two cards - the first was a (non-Reds) need from my 2014 Topps Heritage want list.

That's a pesky short print - so one more is in the binder (only eighty quadrillion - roughly - to go)!

The other card was also from Heritage - but it was a rarer card that must have prompted Pat's note:

That's a gorgeous Jay Bruce refractor chrome numbered out of 565!  I hardly ever seem to pull Reds' parallels...especially of guys who I collect so this was a great addition to my collection (and a great surprise in the mail)!

Thanks for the cards Pat - and I'll keep looking for Tigers to send your way as I pull them!  As for anyone else, if you want to trade be sure to check out my want list and make an offer!

Lately I pull more of almost every team other than my Cubs. I guess that is unavoidable considering the lack of true talent on the MLB roster. Sigh...
