A Pair of Sosa Cards and Mike Piazza's Pants!

Earlier this morning, we finished off the 1993 Upper Deck box (and we found one of the rarest inserts in the set to boot)!  Now, we turn our attention to the remaining five boxes in the group break.  Most of the boxes have quite a few packs remaining, so let's get goin'!

For now, let's put a serious dent in the Fleer Maximum box!

Pack 10:
Tony Clark - Red Sox
Roger Clemens - Yankees
Gabe Kapler - Rangers
Aaron Sele - Mariners
Rickey Henderson - Padres
Ben Davis - Padres
Jason Tyner - Rays
Brian Jordan - Braves
Jeff Cirillo - Rockies
Greg Maddux - Braves
Joe Crede - White Sox
Barry Bonds - Giants
Tom Glavine - Braves
238.  True Colors:  Eric Knott - Diamondbacks #299/500

264.  Impact:  Pedro Martinez - Red Sox

The True Colors Rookies cards are numbered as part of the base set but they are all serially numbered out of 500.  There are 25 such rookies in the set which means putting together the full base set would be quite annoying!

Pack 11:
Carlos Delgado - Blue Jays
Paul Lo Duca - Dodgers
Jacque Jones - Twins
Carlos Lee - White Sox
Lance Berkman - Astros
Jose Vidro - Expos
Josh Beckett - Marlins
Jason Giambi - Yankees
Scott Schoeneweis - Angels
Ichiro - Mariners
Milton Bradley - Indians
Jose Ortiz - Rockies
259.  Impact:  Mike Piazza - Mets

America's Game Relic:  Mike Piazza - Mets

It's a Piazza hot pack!  The Impact short print is nice, but the relic is obviously much, much nicer!  The American's Game relics are seeded 1:24 packs.  This particular star spangled card features a small bit of Piazza's pants, kinky.

Pack 12:
Sammy Sosa - Cubs
Jason Kendall - Pirates
Phil Nevin - Padres
Frank Catalanotto - Rangers
Bartolo Colon - Indians
Cal Ripken Jr. - Orioles
Tino Martinez - Yankees
Rafael Palmeiro - Rangers
Curt Schilling - Diamondbacks
Junior Spivey - Diamondbacks
Ken Griffey Jr. - Reds
Edgar Martinez - Mariners
Alex Rodriguez - Rangers
Jimmy Rollins - Phillies
266.  Impact:  Sammy Sosa - Cubs

Two Sosa cards in this pack - but most of the others were duplicates if memory serves.  Oh well, at least we found a relic hit for buckstorecards - that's good!

Crow and Servo said it best: Sing the praises of pants!

This is my first pants relic - at least one that has been labeled as such.
