1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice: Pack #22: In Which I Score Double Dodger Signatures

Oh sure, everyone else (and their mother) may be opening 2017 Topps, but not me.  I'm still cranking through my box of 1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice.  No big deal, I'm just 21 years behind is all.

To be fair, I still often find myself listening to 90s music on my way to work too...so maybe I really am stuck in the 90s.

Anyhow, let's rip another pack and see what we get.

Pack 22:
21.  Juan Castro
52.  Armando Benitez
64.  Mike MacFarlane

This is a kind of a unique image, I like it!  Notice the umpire's hand off to the side signalling "out."  Very cool indeed!
107.  Fred McGriff
206.  Scott Stahoviak
243.  Jason Giambi
283.  Allen Battle  (a duplicate from within the box)
You Make the Play:  24.  Fred McGriff (home run)

Woo!  We score a run!  Too bad there wasn't anyone on base in our game, but still, we won't complain about a round tripper.  Our lead has expanded to 6-3 and we are still in the fourth inning with only one out.
Silver Signatures:
29.  Chan Ho Pack (x2)

Ok, that's a bit of a letdown...two of the exact same parallel in the same pack no less.  At least there are a lot of Dodger collectors out there, anyone need one (or both) of these?
