Before I get to the second pack today (!) out of my 1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice box, I have a question for all of you:
When do you usually read blogs?
Do you typically read them in the morning? Afternoon? Evening? Late at night?
I've become extremely curious about when the most people are online reading - especially since I've been thinking about doing a group break for 2017 Topps and I'd obviously like as many people to see the sign-up posts as possible. However, even without considering a possible group break, I'm still extremely curious as to when people are interacting with the blogs.
For me, I do most of my reading at night, though sometimes I get some web surfing in at work in between classes (if I don't have students visiting me during office hours for example). How about for you?
And with that mystery (hopefully) solved soon, let's get to tonight's pack.
20. Ruben Rivera
68. Troy O'Leary
89. Wilson Alvarez
105. Frank Thomas
Probably the only card in that pack that interested me much. Poor output like that is unusual for this set, so we'll chalk this one up to nothing more than bad luck.
192. Steve Sparks
262. Jon Lieber
Our second duplicate base card of the box...and both appeared in back-to-back packs. Let's hope that isn't the start of a more serious (and unfortunate) trend.
267. Steve Parris
You Make the Play: 35. Tim Salmon (Strikeout)
Salmon makes the first out in the top of the fourth. We have no one on base and are currently holding a 5-3 lead.
336. Roberto Kelly
Any Dodgers collectors out there need this one?
361. Robin Ventura
That does it for this pack, not much to see really other than the card of the Big Hurt.
