1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice: Pack #14: In Which I Strikeout

I'm only a bit over a week into my new semester of teaching and I can already tell it's going to be a busy one!  That said, I'm going to do my best to keep up with both work and the blog...and so here I am with another pack out of my 1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice.

Pack 14:
16.  Edwin Hurtado
61.  Rheal Cormier
77.  Lee Smith
117.  Jeff Brantley
155.  Charles Johnson

The All-Rookie subset of cards get the full bleed photo treatment.  This is a particularly nice card if you ask me!
172.  Greg Gagne
278.  Dante Bichette
You Make the Play:  22.  Greg Maddux (Strikeout)

Maddux strikes out for the first out in the top of the third in our ongoing game.  That keeps the score 4-2 us with no one on, one out, top of the third.
Silver Signatures:
118.  Julian Tavarez
132.  Joe Girardi

I have been following your progress through this box of Collector's Choice. I look forward to seeing what you pull from each pack. I really like the little game you are playing with the You Make the Play cards. I do have a couple of quextions for you...are you trying to build the set? If so or not, is there any way I can ask about the Indians cards you pull? I team collect the Indians and currently working on building Indians team sets.

Hi TSHenson! I am trying to build the set but any unwanted Indians (including any inserts and/or parallels) are up for trade. I'm only interested in the base set. Shoot me an email and we can work something out after the box is fully busted.
