Group Break: A Bonus Box Hit of Sorts?

In case you missed it, I opened the entire Pinnacle Xpress box earlier today (which included the metal card). It's worth a look.  Now, it's back to the Upper Deck Play Ball box for two more packs.

2004 Upper Deck Play Ball:
Pack 3:
28.  Mickey Mantle - Yankees

50.  Ichiro - Mariners

103.  Frank Thomas - White Sox
117.  Jose Vidro - Expos
169.  Classic Combos:  Eric Chavez & Miguel Tejada - Athletics #0428/1999

This was a good pack for most of the teams, but I have to give the pack win to the Athletics thanks to the Classic Combos card.  The Classic Combo cards are supposedly seeded 1 per box - but this is our second in three packs!

Pack 4:
21.  Mike Schmidt - Phillies
74.  Josh Beckett - Marlins
88.  Corey Patterson - Cubs
99.  Roberto Alomar - Diamondbacks

108.  Ryan Klesko - Padres

I'm giving this pack victory to the D-backs.  I think the Alomar is the best card (with the Schmidt a close second).

shoot. I didn't know Alomar played for the D-backs. Huh. Learn something new everyday.
