2000 Fleer Tradition: Packs 17 & 18: All About that Base, that Base.

Only one more day until Friday...I think I can make it!  The first week back at work is always tough...but thankfully I've made it this far (and I don't actually teach on Thursdays, though I do typically have a ton of meetings on Thursday).  Anyhow, you don't care about my work schedule - but perhaps you are interested in seeing some sweet, sweet base cards.  You better be, because as it turns out, the next two packs contain nothing but the finest base cards.  Who needs stinking inserts anyways?

Pack 17:
32.  Nomar Garciaparra
80.  Kenny Rogers

128.  Benito Santiago
147.  Edgardo Alfonzo

165.  Carl Everett
195.  Greg Vaughn
203.  Andrews Galarraga
265.  Miguel Del Toro
330.  Darren Dreifort
429.  Russ Davis

One of the big benefits for a set collector when you get a pack of all base cards is that you have a better chance at making progress towards completing said base set.  That's exactly what happened here for me:  I needed a pair of cards making this one of the more productive packs out of the box so far.  Obviously, I'm happy with that outcome.  Who needs inserts anyhow?

Pack 18:
4.  NL RBI Leaders
101.  Adrian Beltre
105.  Rey Ordonez
155.  Kansas City Royals
172.  Andruw Jones
187.  Bruce Aven
198.  Joe Mays
199.  Chicago White Sox

255.  Cincinnati Reds
445.  NL Division Series

My second pack of all base today...and the second pack with two new cards for my set.  That's awesome - and it ups the total number of new cards from the box to 19...just a bit above the one-per-pack ratio that I need to beat if I'm to complete the full set by the end of the box!

Lots of Mets! Always nice to see my man Edgardo Alfonzo.

I miss the Sox vests. I know I am in the minority, though.
