This is the 11th pack out of my 1996 Collector's Choice box - and the second pack that I've been able to rip today (I should be writing more lesson plans but baseball cards only take a few minutes, right)?!
2. Stat Leaders: Tony Gwynn & Edgar Martinez
Barry Larkin finished 6th in average in 1995. That was Larkin's MVP year as well.
97. Lance Johnson
Here's to you, Lance.
120. Jim Thome
Some of the big name players (i.e. the All-Stars) got borderless cards that are quite awesome. The Thome is a perfect example.
212. Carlos Perez
234. Andy Pettitte
262. Jon Lieber
308. Robby Thompson
You Make the Play
41. Greg Vaughn (Strikeout)
Vaughn's strikeout is only the first out of the second inning. We still have a 4-1 lead and a runner on first base.
31. Doug Johns
37. Orlando Palmeiro
Not a bad pack - I like the League Leaders cards in the set quite a bit. I also really like that Thome card...I don't think I had seen that one before!
