1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice: Pack #7: In Which I Determine Second Basemen Make for the Best Baseball Cards

I'm making solid progress on my 1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice (Series 1) box.  It is my hope that I'll be able to trade for whatever cards that I'm still missing when all is said and done.  However, I may need to track down a second box (we shall see) since every pack of ten cards really only offers seven regular base cards...and the first series is quite large (365 cards total).

I think I also need to track down a box of Series 2...but I'll save that for a future day.  For now, let's enjoy what I currently own - and that's another pack out of the Series 1 box!

Pack 7:
86.  Jaime Navarro
129.  Jason Bates

Nice action shot!
211.  Cliff Floyd
269.  Randy Johnson
282.  Terry Bradshaw
329.  Manny Ramirez
355.  Paul Molitor
Make the Play rules card
You Make the Play:  4.  Jay Bell (Walk)
In our ongoing game, the opposing pitcher has given up two walks, a double, and a pair of stolen bases...but somehow only two runs (so far).  We now have Bell on first with two outs.
Silver Signatures:
92.  Ray Durham

Another nice action shot.  Photos of second basemen (and shortstops) make for some of the best cards (probably second only to catchers).
94.  Ozzie Guillen

I ended up with a couple of nice photographs but otherwise that was a fairly uninspiring pack.  That's alright though because I needed all of the base cards (and ultimately, that's my goal with this box)!
