1996 Upper Deck Collector's Choice: Pack #25: In Which We Find a Mattingly Hot Pack!

We are nearing the end of the third quarter of the box...only two more packs remain in the upper right column of packs.  I am happy so far with the progress that I've made on the base set - and getting a new Barry Larkin silver signature parallel (twice actually) was an even nicer surprise!  Let's see what else this box has in store for us...

Pack 25:
24.  Brian Barber
57.  Scott Erickson
76.  Brian Anderson
87.  Luis Gonzalez
100.  Don Mattingly

I guess having a Yankees card to lead off the "Tradition Threads" subset makes a lot of sense.  I can't fault Upper Deck for that choice.
157.  Dave Weathers
309.  William Van Landingham (a duplicate)
You Make the Play:  11.  Joe Carter (Flyout)
Carter makes the first out in the top of the fifth inning.  
Silver Signatures:
208.  Shane Andrews

Spring training fist bump?  Why not.
237.  Don Mattingly

The second Mattingly in the pack - I guess there is certainly worse players to get multiple cards of in a pack.
