I'm in a clean-up mood, and this pack has been in my "Pack Scans" folder since 2010. Maybe it's about time to actually add it to the sidebar. I'm hoping to add a few more before the year is through as well.
#561 - Bartolo Colon - With over 70 rookies, it's nice to find one that actually made a career for himself. Take that to mean whatever you want.
#735 - Jeff Cirillo - Team Checklist - Everyone remembers the Brewers' poster boy Jeff Cirillo, right?
#654 - Dan Carlson - I used to have a pitcher's batting collection. Then I abandoned it, because I have the need to make lists and there's no resources telling me what I'm missing.
#597 - T.J. Staton - 3 of 4 cards have been rookies so far, but this is the best picture. Nothing special, but well framed and the right angle for the background.
#722 - Greg Maddux - Team Checklist - And here's how not to do a dugout picture.
#571 - Emil Brown - I'm not very familiar with the guy, but he evidently had a ten year career. He played from '97 to 2001 and then again from '05 to '09 with a total of 5 teams.
#756 - Jaret Wright - Here are the card backs. As you can kind of see, they include full career stats and it's a nice big, different picture on the back. He had no MLB experience per the card, but ended with an 11-year career and an overall winning record.
#736 - Paul Molitor - Team Checklist - Tiffany Collection Parallel - When I bought this box, I thought these Tiffany parallels were one per pack. Nope. One per box, but it's a damn good one if I may say so.
#604 - Jim Eisenreich - Not one of the 70+ rookies. Jim had been playing since 1982, and oh boy does it show. Even his arm muscles have wrinkles.
#507 - Felipe Crespo - Well, they can't all be David Arias (Ortiz) rookies.
Each pack promises 10 cards, but the Million Dollar insert makes it 11, so if you think of it that way, I guess it's not so bad. Still really sucks for those people who collect those 5 rare players.
Hooray 1997. This was good. What's next?
