Rookie Cards: 1 (McCarthy)
Sub Sets: 4 (Postseason, All-Star, Futures, and Home Run Derby)
Parallels: 0
Inserts: 0
Hits: 1
Keepers for Me: 0 (All are up for trade)
Front Design: 8 out of 10 Good pictures (some posed and some action), team colors represented, good use of foil.
Back Design:  8 out of 10 Nice design, team logo on some cards, full career stats, good layout. 
Player Selection: .7.5 out of 10 Good, decent prospects and all-stars and a future HOFer.
FINAL OVERALL RATING: Triple to center field. Some good players and a hit of a future HOFer make this an easy triple. No keepers for me keeps this one in the ballpark.
