Today's pack is number 12 in the box...which means we have officially hit the one-third mark. Don't you miss boxes that crammed 36 packs in them (and with 10 cards per pack to boot)? I know I do. Simply holding the box makes me feel like I'm getting my money's worth out of the experience!
1. Cal Ripken, Jr.
I don't usually have the best luck at pulling card #1 from a set. It seems like that number is often lurking on my initial want list when I post it! As such, I'm happy to nab the #1 card from this set...and I'm even happier to report that it is a sweet Ripken card!
7. Stat Leaders: Hideo Nomo & Randy Johnson
15. John Wasdin
191. Mike Fetters
239. Scott Brosius
283. Allen Battle
306. Deion Sanders
I totally forgot that Deion went from the Reds to the Giants in 1995.
You Make the Play: 44. Rondell White (flyout)
In our ongoing game, White's flyout gives us two outs in the top of the second inning with our team currently leading 4-1 (and a runner still on first base).
339. Roberto Alomar
I like the International Flavor subset cards quite a bit - and the silver signature actually adds to the card in my opinion.
347. Bob Tewksbury
Not a bad way to end the first third of the box. I'm super happy with the Cal Ripken, Jr. card most of all.
The fun begins where the pavement ends
