Group Break: More Fleer Tradition, More Great Photographs!

Here we go again, more from the Fleer Tradition box.  My goal is to get this box finished off ASAP (in terms of the posts) and then move on to a new box in the break.  Ideally, that will happen within a day or so.

1998 Fleer Tradition:
Pack 21:
496.  Randy Myers - Blue Jays
520.  Mike Fetters - Athletics

397.  Kent Merker - Cardinals
385.  David Wells - Yankees (needed it!)
571.  Jose Cruz, Jr. - Blue Jays
414.  Hal Morris - Royals
450.  Brian Anderson - Diamondbacks
480.  John Halama - Astros
435.  Paul Sorrento - Rays
Vintage '63:  75.  John Smoltz - Braves
Diamond Ink:  Tony Womack (1 pt)

Admittedly, one of the more boring packs of the box so far (both in terms of player selection and photography).

Pack 22:
355.  Albert Belle - White Sox
467.  Allen Watson - Angels
370.  Kenny Rogers - Athletics
454.  Tyler Green - Phillies
570.  Roberto Kelly - Rangers
369.  Rey Ordonez - Mets
383.  Derrek Lee - Marlins
542.  Jason Varitek - Red Sox

Vintage '63:  70.  Matt Williams - Diamondbacks
Promising Forecast:  5 of 20 PF.  Ben Grieve - Athletics

Diamond Ink:  Tony Womack (5 pts)

That's our third (and probably final) Promising Forecast insert from the box.  At 1:12 packs (or three per box), it'll take some serious box buying and collation luck to finish off the entire 20 card set.  While I do dig the weather theme, I won't be attempting this insert set!

Pack 23:
495.  Brian Johnson - Giants
421.  Felix Rodriguez - Diamondbacks
398.  Jeff Kent - Giants

535.  Mark Langston - Padres (needed it!)
569.  Shane Reynolds - Astros
593.  Cal Ripken, Jr. - Orioles
477.  Kevin Young - Pirates

502.  Tony Batista - Diamondbacks
428.  Rafael Medina - Marlins
Vintage '63:  122.  Quinton McCracken - Rays
Diamond Ink:  Jay Buhner (1 pt)

Pack 24:
468.  John Jaha - Brewers
519.  Raul Casanova - Tigers

455.  Jorge Posada - Yankees

384.  Doug Glanville - Phillies (needed it!)
567.  Jon Nunnally - Reds
547.  Desi Relaford - Phillies
445.  Mike Blowers - Athletics

541.  Cliff Politte - Cardinals
487.  Cliff Floyd - Marlins
Vintage '63:  117.  Kevin Brown - Padres
Diamond Ink:  Nomar Garciaparra (1 pt)

So many great photographs in that pack! 

In terms of my set, I ended up landing 3 more cards.  At this point in time, I don't need any card in the 400s (which makes searching my binder for missing cards much, much quicker)!  I've also almost finished off the Series 2 cards in the 300s with only card #382 missing at the moment.

Stomper! I really enjoy it when mascots make appearances on cards.
