A Griffey Cameo plus an Awesome Dugout Shot!

Welcome back to another day full of group break packs!  I'm writing this post on Saturday, about 15 hours after the Reds beat the Pirates in a 10-inning Friday night showdown.  Tonight (my time), the Reds play game two of the series...which means by the time you read this the Reds will either be one game up or one game behind Pittsburgh.  And, more importantly, by the time you read this I'll be in the car heading to Pittsburgh myself to catch the final game of the three game series (Pittsburgh is about four hours or so from my house).  That's why I have to write today's posts ahead of time - enjoy!  (And root for the Reds in Sunday's match-up!)

The Blue Jays pick up their first insert card of the break - which means we now have 22 of the 30 teams with at least one insert, short print, or hit already!  That's awesome for everyone involved!
