Group Break: Heading into the Second Half of the Topps Total Box

We've made it to the second half of the gigantic box of 2002 Topps Total.  Let's see what other middle relievers and backup catchers we can add to the team stacks (and I mean that with sincerity and joy)!

Pack 19:
87.  Jose Ortiz - Rockies
165.  Joaquin Benoit - Rangers
947.  Antonio Alfonseca - Cubs
202.  Ben Weber - Angels
962.  Adam Roller - Yankees

298.  Sidney Ponson - Orioles
182.  Clint Weibl - Cardinals
82.  Clint Nageotte - Mariners
443.  Bob Howry - White Sox
49.  Adrian Hernandez - Yankees
18 of 30:  Expos Checklist

That Roller was my favorite image of the pack - not bad for a guy I've never heard of.

Pack 20:
586.  Michael Cuddyer - Twins
349.  Danny Patterson - Tigers
107.  Brad Thomas - Twins
Topps Total:  TT25.  Derek Jeter - Yankees

268.  Mike Willaims - Pirates
715.  Dennis Tankersley - Padres
524.  Vance Wilson - Mets
637.  Billy Martin - Diamondbacks
91.  Juan Encarnacion - Reds
933.  Jon Lieber - Cubs
Checklist 1 of 6

A nice looking Jeter insert (the cards scan like crap but they look pretty good in person, you'll have to trust me on that I guess until you get the cards in hand)!

Pack 21:
74.  Jace Brewer - Rays
327.  Ben Sheets - Brewers
974.  Ryan Minor - Expos
436.  Rich Rodriguez - Indians
871.  Brian Roberts - Orioles
306.  Tony Clark - Red Sox
Award Winners:  AW4.  Ichiro - Mariners

744.  Marlyn Tisdale - Reds
127.  Alan Benes - Cubs
285.  Chan Ho Park - Rangers
17 of 30.  Twins Checklist

That's our second Ichiro insert from the box (both different cards luckily).

Pack 22:
906.  Jeff DaVanon - Angels
447.  Jose Vizcaino - Astros
776.  Seth Etherton - Reds
706.  Ross Gload - Rockies
99.  Felix Rodriguez - Giants
242.  Troy Percival - Angels
408.  Cody Ransom - Giants

687.  Willie Bloomquist - Mariners
674.  Ryan Franklin - Mariners
791.  Olmedo Saenz - Athletics
16 of 30.  Brewers Checklist

That Ransom card is kind of neat since it shows Cody in a Team USA jersey.

Still quite a few more packs to go (which is good because we still haven't found the Barry Larkin card in this set - even if I do already own a copy of it).
