So, it appears madding and I have been trading sport card volleys and everyone else is content to watch. I'm new to the game, so perhaps this is the equivalent to the off-season here at APTBNL.
Anyway, since it's my turn, here's a pack from the old $1.49 bin. As it turns out, it's too bad I only picked up one of these...feast your eyes on some 2005 Upper Deck Classics!
8 cards per pack, here we go:
#28 - Earl Weaver
#84 - Rollie Fingers
I wonder if the backgrounds for the cards in the set were photoshopped. I mean, it appears Rollie's pitching on the beach or something. In any event, it's a nice start, especially since I don't see many Rollie-as-a-Brewer cards.
#70 - Monte Irvin
#CC-RS - Classic Counterparts: Nolan Ryan / Tom Seaver (#1507 / 1999)
The serial number's on the bottom right corner of the card. It's almost hidden there; it took me a while to realize that it was numbered. The back of the pack says these are seeded 1 in every 14 packs.
#CC-RS - Classic Counterparts: Nolan Ryan / Tom Seaver (back)
No # - Upper Deck Rewards dummy card (not pictured)
Here's the back of the card for those who are interested.
#24 - Dave McNally (back)
#76 - Phil Niekro
Not very impressed with the card backs. The picture's the same as the front, and there's just a brief career summary and lifetime stats. The team logo for that era is prominently displayed, though...and by the way, welcome back, cartoon Oriole!
#64 - Kirk Gibson
#125 - Ryne Sandberg (Retro Star Rookies)
The Ryno Retro Rookie ris ra rinner, er, winner of this pack. The pack says the RSR's seeded one in every 4 packs. Other Rookies include Mickey Mantle, Mike Schmidt, Nolan Ryan, Ted Williams, and Tony Gwynn.
Anyway, that's the pack. I would have definitely gotten more if there were more to get.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. If I remember right, K-Mart's having a 20% off sale on trading cards.
I am thankful for finding this blog, as the contributions of all of you has made it possible for someone like me to see cards from packs I would never have bought (and in some cases, thankful I didn't buy them when I had the chance). Thanks for reading!
