Awesome! I had never even heard of these. I'll have to go hunting for the Chipper, Rico Carty, Ron Gant, and any other Braves. Thanks for posting!

You never know what you'll run across in the bargain bin at Target. All mine ever has is Hannah Montana and some kind of horse cards.

I bought a few of these five years ago. If I remember right, I think I got a Dickie Thon /5 Rookie Cup redemption card. I sent it in and got a cool card back with a neat metal logo Topps rookie cup integrated into the card.

The packs you opened make me cry, though. What's the point of a Chad Tracy reprint (ever), much less one from the same year base set?
