1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice: Pack #33: In Which I Return from Barcelona

This past weekend I had a training conference in Barcelona, Spain.  That, coupled with all the work I had to make up with student meetings, etc. when I returned should help to explain my absence on the blogs over the past several days.  I do hope to get back into the swing of things again soon, though posting may be sporadic for a bit longer yet!

All that said, I would really like to get the remainder of the 1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice box done...believe it or not, I still have four packs remaining (all unopened - I didn't "cheat" and rip packs ahead of time).  This is the fourth-to-last pack in the box.

Pack 33:
33.  Kevin Jordan
160.  Jeff Bagwell

Kind of a cool dugout photo.
217.  Ugueth Urbina
224.  Rico Brogna
261.  Freddy Garcia
321.  Jeff Frye
327.  Jose Canseco
You Make the Play:  5.  Albert Belle (Flyout)
Belle makes the second out of the sixth inning with the score remaining 10-5 us in our little game we are playing as we open up the packs.
Silver Signatures:
123.  Dave Winfield
362.  Cal Ripken, Jr.

Overall, I have no complaints about that pack - and I really like the Ripken silver signature card.

I hope to have a bit more about my trip to Barcelona (my first ever visit to Spain) in an upcoming post, but for now you'll simply have to settle for this pack of Collector's Choice.  Only three more packs to go before the box is kicked so to speak!

Welcome back! That's one heck of a training conference, located in Spain!

Two nice cards. Not my favorite Astros uniforms though.
