2001 Topps Stadium Club: Beginning the Second Half of the Box with a Chipper Jones Game-Used Dirt Card (sort of)

We get a big hit in this pack...and yet, it ends up not being so big (as you'll see).

Pack 7:
4.  Chad Kreuter
11.  Brad Ausmus
13.  Edgardo Alfonzo
32.  Eric Milton
37.  Shawn Green - Needed it!

After doing really well for the first half of the box, this Green card ends up being the only card that I needed for my set out of this pack.  That's disappointing...and it's not the only disappointment this time around.
52.  Ray Lankford
70.  Carlos Delgado
84.  Quilvio Veras
93.  Magglio Ordonez
100.  Mark McGwire
106.  Orlando Hernandez
110.  Greg Zaun
111.  Jose Vidro
113.  Vinny Castilla
121.  Johnny Damon
148.  Pat Burrell
198.  Wilson Betemit
Game-Used Dirt Card:  PP6.  Chipper Jones

While that is a pretty cool concept (not many "dirt" relics out there), this is unfortunately an expired redemption card from 2001.  I doubt Topps will honor this anymore seeing as how it's 15 years later!  That makes me sad...and it adds to the disappointment.  And yet, there's still more bad news with this pack.

See all those base cards up there?  Eleven of them ended up being duplicates from this box alone!  That's no good at all...especially with five packs remaining.  Ugh all around.

Colby over at Cardboard connections was putting that dirt set together if you want to see what the chipper looks like
